Jore Corporation Resolves Public Water Supply Violations
Helena --- The Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has completed its administrative enforcement action against Jore Corporation for violations of the Montana public water supply laws at its tool manufacturing plant in Ronan.
In its administrative order, DEQ alleged that Jore's public water supply system exceeded the arsenic maximum contaminant level. The administrative order required the company to take corrective action to reduce the level of arsenic in its water supply system. Jore has returned to compliance with the law by installing treatment to reduce the level of arsenic in its drinking water system.
For questions about the Public Water Supply Program and laws, please contact the Public Water Supply and Subdivisions Bureau at (406) 444-4400 or visit DEQ’s website at www.deq.mt.gov.
