The U.S. EPA has made new progress on changing wastewater treatment rules that are central to the meat and poultry processing industries, targeting major source water contaminants that are becoming a growing challenge nationwide.

“The agency said it would leverage pollution control technologies to cut the amount of nitrogen, phosphorus and other pollutants in wastewater,” Supermarket Perimeter reported. “In its first preferred option (for the new rules), the EPA explained that it would establish more stringent effluent limitations for nitrogen and, for the first time, phosphorus. The agency said the new rule would apply to about 850 of the 5,000 meat facilities in the nation.”
