Proposed House Bill Would Give Municipalities Control on Sludge Use

Harrisburg, PA (8/12/18) - The proposed House Bill 2281 in Pennsylvania will allow municipalities to adopt and enforce ordinances regulating the deposit, testing, disposal or land application of biosolid material. The bill would also allow a municipality to veto a permit approved by the DEP for the land application of this material. “The proposed bill has been referred to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives Committee on Environmental Resources and Energy. The committee can either send the bill back to the house for a vote or it can choose not to act, essentially killing the bill.”
