Regional Water Quality Committee highlight

One of my external committee responsibilities is service on the Regional Water Quality Committee. This is one of those not-so-sexy, but really important committees that oversees a policy area most of us take for granted – wastewater. One of the hallmarks of living in a First World country is that we have sewers, and we try to cleanup our waste water before we spill it back into the environment. Well, that’s the goal of this committee.

Today we are getting an update on the update to the Regional Wastewater Services Plan, a thick document of policies and projects that is updated every 3-5 years. The highlight so far has been a discussion of projects at the Westpoint and South treatment plants to control “fugitive odors.” Great phrase.
