Moratorium on the Issuance of Building Permits for DAF Storage Tanks
During the October 1, 2019 County Council meeting the council voted in favor of Legislative Bill no. 2019-07: – An Act to Impose and Declare a
Moratorium on the Issuance of Building Permits for an Agricultural Storage
Tank which will Store Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) Washdown Water from a
Rendering Process Pursuant to Wicomico County Code Chapters 225, 125
The bill can be seen in its entirety here.
It is noted that this moratorium does not cover the tank that is planned for Porter Mill Road or the spreading of DAF on fields. NAG supported this legislation, but is not satisfied with only this temporary stay and continues to work toward the halt on the Porter Mill tank and further study of the effects of DAF on the health of humans and the environment.
