How will Hudson's flushing fix affect the environment?

Posted by Ralph Ranalli June 7, 2007 11:24 AM


A report outlining the environmental impact of upgrading the town’s wastewater treatment plant will be unveiled and discussed tonight in a public hearing.

The public is invited to attend and share their comments on the draft recommendations contained in a comprehensive wastewater management plan. All public comment will be forwarded to the state for review.
The town will spend $16 million to upgrade the plant that discharges into the Assabet River. New requirements from the state Department of Environmental Protection limiting phosphorus discharge are among the reasons for the improvements.

The hearing will be held at 7 p.m. in the town hall auditorium. For more information, contact Department of Public Works Director Anthony Marques at 978-562-9333.
