Sewage Operators Falsified Test Reports

WESB News: 02/03/09 - Ex-Sewage Plant Operators Plead Guilty

Two former sewage plant operators have pleaded guilty to tampering with public records and other charges, and have been sentenced to probation and community service.

50-year old John Forster of Penfield, who operated the Huston Township plant and 55-year-old Donald Rucinski of Weedville, who operated the Jay Township plant, submitted nearly 1,500 falsified test results on monthly reports between January 2006 and October 2007.

Prosecutors also said inspectors determined that nearly every result for fecal coliform conducted at the laboratory was false. Those tests are used to determine if the discharge from the plants has been potentially contaminated by human waste.
