We just read an article published in Water & Wastes Digest about a panel discussion at the U.S. Conference of Mayors. Thought you would be interested in the following excerpts from that article.
Mayors on the panel suggest that there is an urgent need for regulatory reform as aggressive unfunded water mandates are guided by outdated regulatory approaches and collide with the ability of cities and their rate payers to pay for them.
Currently, the third most costly municipal expenditure for cities is providing safe and adequate water and wastewater infrastructure.
Cities continue to be frustrated by the way the EPA, and especially EPA’s regional offices, is implementing the Clean Water Act and contend that the agency’s overall expectations that local government continually increase investments to comply with clean water rules is unrealistic and ignores the reality of public finances.
At Clear Choice Wastewater Treatment, LLC we can help with our no capital cost onsite wastewater treatment plant. Besides no out of pocket cost for the cities, our electrocoagulation technology is an effective pretreatment for the municipal plants because we can reduce the burden on the system and reduce overall operating costs.
We will be contacting the mayors on the panel to offer our help.
If any of the mayors would like to contact us now, they can complete our Contact Information Sheet under the Contact Us tab at our website at ccwt.info or call John Mitchell, Director of Operations at 877.770.2618 x701.
