Sewer plant operator fined, loses license

June 18, 1999

A Dorchester County sewer plant operator has been fined $5,000 and lost his license to operate a treatment plant for failing to perform required wastewater tests and falsifying state environmental records from the plant.

Thomas W. Trego of Secretary pleaded guilty in Dorchester County District Court on Monday to filing a false statement about tests performed at the Twin Cities Wastewater Treatment plant in Secretary in June 1998. Judge John C. Coolahan suspended $4,000 of the fine, made the remainder payable to the Maryland Clean Water Fund and ordered Trego to perform 40 hours of community service.

Trego confessed to state police that he had failed to perform tests on several occasions and falsified records.
