H.R. 88: Commissioning a Sewage Management and Treatment Task Force
H.R. 88, P.N. 560 (HUTCHINSON) – This resolution would create a joint (House/Senate) task force to study sewage management and treatment issues.
The task force would have three specific missions: determining how the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s 2000 Clean Water Needs Survey applies to the Commonwealth, assessing the ability of treatment plants to meet the compliance goals established in the survey, and identifying how the use of new and innovative technologies can be used to help meet these goals. An advisory committee would be established to assist the task force.
