ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Gov. Martin O’Malley is assembling a group to study pollution from septic systems.

O’Malley plans to sign an executive order Monday establishing the study, which will examine the extent to which septic tanks from large developments are polluting the Chesapeake Bay.

O’Malley was forced to retreat from a plan that would have set new requirements for installing high-end septic systems in rural developments after Democratic leaders said the issue was too complicated to be hashed out during the 2011 session.

The summer study is expected to lay the groundwork for another shot at limiting septic systems next year.

    Doesn’t Owe-Malley realize that he is the head of the septic problem? The s**t head.

    How can you limit septic systems if there aren’t other means available. He needs to stop thinking (that will clear the air) and stop talking (that too will clear the air) – see there’s a pollution problem solved just like that!

    To have the best chance at Passing the New 2011 EPA Drain Field and Nitrate Level Inspections; which are happening across the Country with as little as a 2 weeks notice; Use the All-Natural MillerPlante .net “Septic-Helper 2000” and the Phosphate and Nitrate Free “Enza Washer Ball”. The Septic System Treatment has the natural bacteria and enzymes that liquefy the waste in the tank AND out in the drain field.

    New 2011 EPA mandates say that even a slow drain in your drain field or elevated Nitrate levels could require replacement of your entire system for $20,000 to $40,000 or move out of your home or business.

    Not a peep from O’Malley about the raw sewage spills in Baltimore. Effing hypocrite.
