DEC says Penn Yan wastewater treatment plant corrections made

The village is complying with the terms and schedule of a Nov. 13, 2017, consent order related to the mistaken discharge of 35,000 gallons of wastewater treatment plant sludge into the Keuka Outlet.

That was the update provided by the state Department of Environmental Conservation this month. The DEC issued the consent order after the village violated its discharge permit in August 2017.

The DEC said the village has paid a $5,000 fine and taken required steps to ensure that such an incident does not happen again. The consent order mandated additional measures to improve treatment plant performance and eliminate the chance of exceeding plant effluent limits; the DEC said the village has done that as well.
