Helena -- The Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has settled its administrative enforcement action against Grass-Land Estates Homeowners’ Association for violations of the Montana Public Water Supply Laws at Grass-Land Estates in Helena, Montana.
In its administrative order, DEQ alleged that Grass-Land failed to monitor the system for lead and copper during 2007 and 2008, and to provide public notice as required by the law. The administrative order required Grass-Land to conduct lead and copper sampling, provide the required public notice, and to pay an administrative penalty of $336.
To resolve the violation Grass-Land paid the administrative penalty, provided public notice, and sampled for lead and copper as required.
