Hurricane to Ban Dumping of MCHM

Some officials are putting an end to dumping the particular chemical at the center of the January 9th spill that impacted water supplies. Hurricane Mayor Scott Edwards said over the weekend that no more MCHM waste is being accepted into the city’s landfill. The mayor posted the news on his Facebook page, and said Waste Management made the decision after feeling public pressure. Hurricane and Putnam County will file an official injuntion to ban MCHM in the coming days.
