Comment period for wastewater issues

We ran a story earlier this month about how Fredericksburg faces a $96,000 fine for various water-quality violations at its wastewater treatment plant.

The city has approved what’s called a “consent order” with the state Department of Environmental Quality. That’s basically a document that lays out what problems were found at the plant and what steps the city must take to correct them.

You can get that document here.

Part of the process of approving it includes a month-long public comment period, which runs from Oct. 30 through Nov. 29. If you’re interested in this issue and want to tell the state something about it, click here for information on how to comment.
