Helena — The Montana Department of Environmental Quality reports that the town of Froid recently agreed to resolve violations of the Montana Public Water Supply Laws. The public wastewater system serves the town's residents.
According to DEQ’s Margarite Thomas, Froid’s public wastewater system is leaking in excess of the rate approved for the lagoon in 1994.
To resolve the matter, DEQ and the town of Froid entered into a consent order under which Froid agreed to retain an engineer to work with DEQ in developing a plan and schedule for the design, approval, and construction of the necessary wastewater system improvements.
