Manufacturers Head Off Environmental Reg Overreach

A working group of OMA members, allied with a few other interests, has succeeded in heading off an Ohio EPA regulatory overreach on phosphorus. For now.

See the full description of the EPA proposal here.

Most notable in the regulatory overreach are: a 1.0 mg/L cap on phosphorous, expanding the definition of “fertilizer” as agricultural pollution, civil penalties for odor nuisances, and redefining the state discharge level to protect water quality.
