Spill at BPW Wastewater Plant Addressed Quickly


HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - It apparently didn’t take long for staffers to address a leak at the Holland BPW wastewater treatment plant yesterday morning.

A discharge hose from a portable pump that was emptying effluent from one of the facility’s primary clarifiers for routine maintenance slipped out, causing about 100 gallons to spill onto a grassy area near the plant’s parking lot. It took about 10 minutes before the leakage was stopped, with no fluid escaping the site, and workers were able to clean up the situation by the afternoon. Per utility policy, the Ottawa County Health Department and the state DEQ were immediately notified of the matter, and BPW officials say that the public health was and is at no risk as a result of the spill.
