Astbury received a notice of violation from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management Dec. 31, with state officials calling the operations of the plant “unsatisfactory.”
IDEM said plant operators were bypassing part of the treatment process and had self-reported multiple violations of limits on various pollutants. State officials asked for a corrective action plan to be filed within 30 days.
The city council will hold a public hearing on the plant purchase at 7 p.m. March 24 in council chambers, City Hall.
