State Fines Logan for Wastewater Violations

State regulators have fined the city of Logan more than $81,000 for wastewater violations.

The violations include a discharge of sewage from a manhole that continued for four months.

Other violations include exceeding average monthly discharge limits for nitrogen and other pollutants in 2012, and failing to maintain and properly operate wastewater facilities.

The $81,755 fine is part of a consent order issued by the Department of Environmental Protection. The order also requires Logan to submit a plan outlining corrective actions the city will take to achieve compliance with its water pollution control permit.
