For Immediate Release: July 12, 2005; Release # sr050704

Thanks for the heads up on this press release.

An earlier July 5th EPA Press Release (sr050702) also involved a Maine
College.  EPA is proposing $107.165 in fines for the College of Art in Portland.
Among the violations they listed using "marble chips" to neutralize acid
pickling waste.  Obviously they are talking about a neutralization tank which is
useless for addressing the dissolved metals in pickling waste or acid etching
liquids, etc.  I am constantly fighting college building consultants that want to
put in these damn tanks.
