Wastewater Treatment Superintendent Faces Jail Time
A U.S. District Court in Indiana sentenced the former superintendent of a wastewater treatment facility to one year in prison for falsifying discharge monitoring reports. The erroneous reports concealed violations of the Clean Water Act. The former plant head admitted to making as many as 55 separate falsifications in reports from September 2004 through May 2007 to show that pollutant levels were in compliance
with concentration limits when he knew that the levels were too high.
