Jerome Could Be Fined For Wastewater Treatment Plant

The city of Jerome is trying to find a solution to overflow problems at its wastewater treatment plant. The problems could bring fines of up to $37,500 a day from the Environmental Protection Agency. The Times-News reports the plant’s filters clogged in December. Then, partially treated water entered a discharge canal in February. Idaho Milk Products, Jerome Cheese and Darigold put a combined 1.68 million gallons of wastewater a day through the plant. The wastewater goes through a membrane filtration system that became clogged earlier this year by a foreign substance. City Administrator Ben Marchant says officials have to come up with a solution quickly to show the EPA the city is doing something about the problem. Initial estimates put the work at $3.25 million.
