WEF Coordinates Comments on Draft of U.S. EPA Nutrient Removal Report

September 25, 2015

Laws & Regs, WEF Resources & Efforts

On Aug. 5, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the draft report, “Case Studies on Implementing Low-Cost Modifications to Improve Nutrient Reduction at Wastewater Treatment Plants: Draft Version 1.0.” The report showcases communities where lower cost water resource recovery facility modifications can reduce nitrogen discharge levels. It was developed in response to requests from EPA regional managers for documentation of low-cost opportunities for municipalities to reduce nutrient pollution.

EPA is interested in learning of additional communities’ successes and plans to update this document. EPA requests comments on the report by Dec. 15. The Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) plans on coordinating comments provided by members. To contribute, contact Claudio Ternieden, WEF director of Government Affairs, at cternieden@wef.org or at (703) 684-2416.
