Pierre Fined $15,700 for Falsified Pollution Control Reports


PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota’s Department of Environment and Natural Resources has fined Pierre more than $15,700 for falsified pollution control reports.

The falsified reports dealt with how well the city’s wastewater was treated before being dumped into the Missouri River. Former Wastewater Treatment Plant Manager Greg Mohr was accused of lying for more than a year, and he pleaded guilty last May to misdemeanor water pollution control violations.

KCCR radio reports the Pierre City Commission on Tuesday approved paying the penalty.

Mohr was required to relinquish his certifications to work in a water pollution control or waste water management facility for two years. He also was ordered to pay fines and perform 80 hours of community service.

Officials said there was no indication of any environmental damage due to the falsified reports.
