Billings Company Resolves Water Quality Violation

 

Helena --- The Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) recently settled its administrative enforcement action against Buscher Construction and Development, Inc. for violations of the Montana Water Quality Act that occurred at the Poly Vista Estates Subdivision in Billings.

In its enforcement action, the DEQ alleged that the company discharged sediment-laden storm water to state waters without a permit. To address the violation, DEQ issued an Administrative Order on Consent, which assessed a $5,750 administrative penalty for the violation. Buscher has obtained a discharge permit, paid the administrative penalty and has met the corrective actions of the order.
