• Derby Could Face $25k/Day in Fines for Dumping 300,000 Gallons of Sewage Into the Housatonic

“'The problem is it's a very old pump station. I believe it's from the 60s, and it hasn't been upgraded,' said Brian Capozzi, Shift Operator at the Derby Water Pollution Control Facility.

“In a letter to the City, DEEP said if the problem wasn’t corrected, the City could face fines of $25,000 per day.”

Might be better off forcing Derby to spend the money on upgrading its sewage system.
