05.11.16 - O'Brien Calls EPA Water Safety Bill A "Step In The Right Direction" For The Region

 

State Rep. Sean J. O’Brien (D-Bazetta) today voted in favor of House Bill (HB) 512, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s mid-biennium review legislation. 

The legislation follows the recent Sebring water crisis, in which records have revealed that the Ohio EPA failed to notify residents of Sebring, Ohio that area water had higher-than-normal levels of lead for almost five months. 

“The state has the responsibility to ensure we are doing everything in our power to keep children and families safe from toxic drinking water,” said O’Brien. “Though this legislation could certainly go further to tighten reporting requirements, and encourage inter-agency cooperation, I am pleased we were able to take this first step in the right direction today.”
