Iowa WPCA asks EPA to reject tougher nitrogen standards
June 4, 2008
The Natural Resources Defense Council has petitioned the EPA to tighten regulations on the release of nitrogen and phosphorous from municipal wastewater treatment plants
in Iowa. The Iowa Water Pollution Control Association has sent the EPA a response
suggesting that if tigher nitrogen and phosphorous rules are applied to Iowa communities, many will be bankrupted by the cost of the additional equipment required.
