Water haulers decry state regulation

Acton water haulers say a new state regulation that goes into effect next year will severely limit their ability to serve customers, if they can at all.

The regulation called for a particulate matter filter on diesel engines based on the vehicle’s model year. The filters can be used for up to eight years, but they had to be installed by Jan. 1, 2014.
