The Town of Lowville is working on a law that would ban commercial manure digesters. The move comes after a Florida company wanted to build a plant last year that would convert manure and food waste into methane gas. That project was rejected on a zoning issue and the town council has expressed concern over large, commercial digesters coming into the area. The proposed new law would allow manure digesters on farms, as long as they do not accept outside waste. The town council is expected to pass the law next month.
