Pollution Update 10-24-13

Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has followed up on the warning letter it sent to Vivian Rooke of Scott Township, Penn., on July 9 (EW 8/1, goo.gl/b9TTLo) concerning Rooke’s failure to have a legal septic system at property owned by Rooke at 81251 Lost Creek Road in Dexter. DEQ’s July warning letter followed three separate Lane County letters over the course of the last year to which the county did not receive any replies.  EQ’s most recent action took the form of a pre-enforcement notice sent to Rooke on Oct. 7, and the matter is being referred to DEQ’s Office of Compliance and Enforcement for formal enforcement due to Rooke’s failure to respond to DEQ.
