Sweet Water recently held its first joint meeting of the Science and Policy Committees. The meeting took place at MMSD on October 16th and was attended by over 20 interested individuals. Major topics covered included the emerging water quality issue of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from coal-tar sealants and the introduction of MMSD's 2050 Facilities Planning process. Austin Baldwin of the US Geological Survey and Paul Mathewson of Clean Wisconsin presented the most recent information regarding PAHs and coal-tar sealants for committee members to weigh when considering steps necessary to address the water quality issue. Following a discussion, Bill Krill of MMSD presented the 2050 Facilities Planning process and Sweet Water considered what role it would play in it. Click here for the agenda.
