Hazardous Chemical Disposal Created Problems in our Sewage System

In early December 2023, an unknown quantity of what is suspected to be waste engine oil entered the wastewater collection system and eventually entered the associated wastewater treatment plant.

processes did recover well by the beginning of January 2024 and continue to improve.
