Village of Gowanda

New York, NY: (Mar-12-07) In a settlement reached with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), The Village of Gowanda, which spans Cattaraugus and Erie Counties in New York paid a reduced fine of $1500 after spending more than $38,000 to improve how it handles waste from its municipal sludge composting facility. The village was booked for violating the federal Clean Water Act. Since sewage sludge must be kept at a constant temperature to control pathogens and bacteria, the village has purchased a specially-designed, fully automated temperature control and recording system enabling it to better operate and maintain its sewage facility.
