Who pumps what into our bay? Where and how much? Who's keeping watch?

CANCELLED DUE TO SNOW. NEW DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED

On February 5, 2014,  from 6-7:30 pm, join the Friends of Penobscot Bay at the Belfast Public Library to consider  "37 Outfalls and 1 Bay: Tracking Penobscot Bay's  licensed waste dischargers". The meeting will be in the 3rd floor conference room and is free and open to all.

In this second  event in our Winter 2014 series, we'll take a look at how our Penobscot Bay towns, and state & federal agencies are doing at managing the flow of licensed wastewater from sewage treatment plants and industrial outfalls into our bay.
An art as much as a science, shepherding the great digesting swarms of bacteria used to turn our waste into safer compounds and ending up with  safe discharges requires wastewater operators  to stay sensitive to their tiny charges.  (Think of these microbes as combining into single gigantic tame but hungry meta-animals, penned inside the tanks)
How well are Penobscot Bay's outfall operators doing?  . Come find out February 5, 2014 6-7:30 pm  at the Belfast Public library.
