Lubbock fined for environmental violations at wastewater plant

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Environmental violations will cost Lubbock City Hall a $50,580 fine. 

Public records say the city's waster water treatment plant at Southeast Loop 289 and Southeast Drive exceeded the limits of its state permit several times in late 2008 and continuing through mid-2009. The city denies any wrongdoing but agrees to pay the fine.  

City Manager Lee Ann Dumbauld signed an agreed order with TCEQ on Wednesday February 24th.  The order gives the city 730 days to correct all violations which the city believes is enough time to finish construction on certain upgrades to the wastewater plant. 

The Southeast Water Reclamation Plant is undergoing a $50.9 million capital improvement project.
