Jamestown fined for chlorine handling infractions

JAMESTOWN, N.D. — The federal Environmental Protection Agency has fined Jamestown $2,080 for improper handling of chlorine at the city's water treatment plant.

City Engineer Reed Schwartzkopf tells The Jamestown Sun that the infractions uncovered in a spring audit dealt mostly with administrative procedures, and that no chemicals spilled.

Schwartzkopf says the fine initially was $5,000 but the EPA reduced it.
