City proposes once again buying phosphorus credits


WILLMAR -- The Willmar City Council will be asked next week to approve a phosphorus trade agreement between the city of Willmar and the city of Mankato for 2010 to reduce Minnesota River pollution until Willmar's new wastewater treatment plant begins operation this fall.

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency requires Willmar to reduce phosphorus at the old treatment plant in 2008, 2009 and 2010 to comply with a Minnesota River Basin national discharge permit.
