MARION FILES DRAFT OPTIMIZATION PLAN

Plan Improves Efficiency and Environmental Protection

The Town of Marion, in compliance with its Administrative Order on Consent (AOC) with the EPA, has filed a comprehensive Draft Optimization Plan that will allow the Town Wastewater Treatment Plant Operators to use the lined lagoon as primary for influent equalization and to minimize the use of the other lagoons.

The submission of this important document triggers a 60-day period that allows regulators to consider and to comment on the plan.  After the comment period has elapsed, the Board of Selectmen will make any necessary or desired changes and adopt and implement the plan.
