Nashua agrees to reduce amount of nutrient discharge into river

The Associated Press

NASHUA — City officials are agreeing to reduce the amount of phosphorus its wastewater treatment plant can send into the Merrimack River.

An attorney representing the city tells The Telegraph the agreement with state and federal environmental agencies will save the city millions of dollars. In order for the plant to renew its permit, the Environmental Protection Agency agreed to lower the amount of phosphorous treatment it had initially requested.

The agreement stipulates the city will have to build a chemical feed facility for the additional chemicals they'll use to remove phosphorous from the wastewater.

The public will be allowed to comment after the EPA releases a revised draft permit. The process is expected to take months.
