MILTON — The Milton Regional Sewer Authority (MRSA) and Keystone Sporting Arms (KSA) worked together to resolve an irregularity discovered in the testing of the arms’ companies wastewater discharge.

“KSA is a regulated industry under the MRSA’s industrial pretreatment program,” Genie Bausinger, MRSA executive director, said. “Their waste must meet an extensive list of parameters to be in compliance with the program.”

During routine testing, Bausinger said it was discovered that KSA’s “discharged contained a result for one parameter which was slightly above the permitted standard.”

“The MRSA and KSA worked together to ensure additional testing was conducted,” Bausinger said. “KSA has remedied the situation and is back in compliance.”

She said the incident had “no negative impact to the treatment plant.”
