Colchester company fined for unlawfully managing septic waste

MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) State officials say a Colchester septic company faces fines for unlawfully transporting and storing septic waste.

State environmental regulators Friday announced the $58,550 fine against Enviro Tech of VT Septic Services, LLC of Colchester. Agency of Natural Resources officials say the Colchester company operated without a valid Waste Transporter Permit since 2006, yet transported and delivered nearly 4 million gallons of waste to wastewater treatment facilities in Vermont between 2012 and 2017, and also temporarily stored solid waste on the company's Colchester property on multiple occasions.

ANR officials say after repeated efforts to come into compliance, they sought a court order requiring the company to cease operations and pay the fine.
