BOARDMAN — The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality has hit the Port of Morrow with another fine.

The DEQ on Thursday, April 4, issued the port a notice for a fine of $727,050 for almost 900 wastewater permit violations during the nongrowing season from November to February. Antony Vorobyov, public affairs specialist for DEQ’s Eastern Region, explained the violations occurred because the port does not have the necessary wastewater treatment and storage systems to operate in compliance with its permit.
