County wants more time to study land application
On Monday, July 20, Middlesex County formally asked the State Water Control Board to postpone a July 23 public hearing and decision on the proposed Saluda wastewater treatment plant.
The county wants time to determine the feasibility of applying the treated wastewater to land instead of discharging into Urbanna Creek.
“The Hampton Roads Sanitation district (HRSD) has been studying the potential of land application of our discharge along with the discharge from the Town of Urbanna,” states the letter from county administrator Charles Culley to the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ).
More details will be posted at http://www.SSentinel.com as they are received.
