Foodservice company draws MDEQ fine for wastewater
Published: May 12,2013
PEARL — A foodservice company is paying an $18,000 civil fine for dumping wastewater into Jackson’s sewer system for 11 years without a permit.
Valley Services agreed in March to pay the fine to the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality.
An order published by the department says the company’s Pearl facility has been discharging wastewater since 2001. Jackson’s sewer system extends to a number of Rankin County locations.
After regulators notified Valley Services last year, the company was issued a permit in January.
Valley Services is a unit of TrustHouse Services Group, based in Charlotte, N.C.
