Two Pineville manufacturers have committed what are termed significant wastewater discharge violations in the past year.
Notice of the violations has been posted by the city.
Nothing in the notice indicates the violations were either intentional or a result of willful neglect.
Willamette Valley Company, 4502 Williamette Blvd., Pineville, exceeded the daily maximum discharge limit for oil and grease based on samples taken by the City of Pineville during an inspection on 12/1/2022, according to the city, and a violation notice was issued.
Subsequent tests show the facility is in compliance, according to the city.
Calvary Industries, 301 Redmount Drive, exceeded the daily maximum discharge limits for BOD based on sample taken during self-monitoring testing on 6/8/22.
Calvary also exceeded the daily maximum discharge limit for BOD based on samples taken by the City of Pineville during an inspection on 11/16/22.
Notices of violation were issued. Subsequent tests show the facility is in compliance, the posting noted.
BOD provides a measure of the impact of a waste (water) on the oxygen content in a receiving water body.
