Who's responsible for chemical security?
January 18, 2008

The Committee on Homeland Security of the US House of Representatives will be holding a meeting on Wednesday to discuss the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Act of 2008, an update to 2006 legislation regarding the security of hazardous chemicals across the country. The American Water Works Association has asked its members to send letters to their representatives on the committee, requesting that water and wastewater treatment plants be excluded from the regulations. Municipal plants utilize a range of chemicals, including chlorine and ammonia which can be dangerous. The AWWA's position is that plenty of regulations already cover the use of those chemicals and that including municipal water and wastewater plants under new regulations would only increase the cost to consumers.

We can help you with many products for municipal water treatment, including pumps and water-quality sensors. Please feel free to contact us with your questions.
