State ready to propose perchlorate standards|
The state is poised to introduce drinking water and cleanup standards for perchlorate, which is flowing through the aquifer beneath the Massachusetts Military Reservation.
The proposed regulations - which will dictate safe drinking standards and how much perchlorate must be cleaned up by polluters - could be ready in a few weeks, said Edmund Koletta, state Department of Environmental Protection spokesman.
The latest estimate of when the regulations will be released for public comment comes after 12 months of promises from state environmental officials that the standards would soon be established. State environmental Commissioner Robert Gollege would not comment about the standards until after they are published, Koletta said.
