Toxic Waste Disposal in Massachusetts

Senior (College 4th year) ・Healthcare&Medicine ・APA ・1 Sources

Liquid waste is also known as hazardous waste and refers to all domestic and industrial effluent disposed of through sewages which may be disposed into nearby water bodies. If these wastes are not treated, they may pose a significant threat to human and animal health. Poor liquid waste disposal in Massachusetts can be traced to the industrialization era (Provost). The increased industrial activities resulted in massive effluent emission by industries into the water systems.  Appropriate management of these waters guarantees not just the health of inhabitants of a city yet, also, the well-being of animals and vegetation in the environment.

Most of Massachusetts public water supplies have become contaminated by illegal toxic waste disposal; resulting in acute water shortage to the communities living in Massachusetts. Drinking water contamination poses a significant threat to healthy living. The growing rate of pandemics such as high rates of leukemia and worrying cancer rates has elicited the Public Health Department of Massachusetts to conduct research -to establish the relationship between the illnesses and the irresponsible liquid waste disposal in Massachusetts (Provost). 
To address the irresponsible liquid waste disposal in Massachusetts, the state legislators enacted the Sitting Act (Massachusetts Hazardous Waste Facility Siting Act) of 1980.

This legislation was intended to promote the development of liquid waste treatment and disposal facilities that offer sufficient security and protection of population health, safety, and environment (Provost). The legislation limited the municipalities’ power to regulate liquid waste institutions or to exclude them through changes in zoning. Further, the act recognized the treatment and disposal of liquid wastes as acceptable uses of any Massachusetts’ lands categorized as industrial zones by declaring them as-of-right uses.

First time when I placed an order with you, I just lacked time to do all the homework and it was a lot going on in my family. But today I’m doing it sometimes just for fun – I really enjoy communicating with your Customer Support members and just letting myself being a bit lazy

My GPA is 4.0 and I’ve always been doing everything myself, but there is a class which I was about to fail thus my GPA would decrease first time in so many years. I ordered few assignments to be completed with and you did a great job! Thanks to you I still remain one of the best students on campus.

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
