Lexington facing thousands in fines for sewer overflows
The city of Lexington is facing fines following a year of sewer overflows.
Currently, the city is in the process of a $590 million overhaul of its storm water and sewer systems.
Still, the Lexington Herald-Leader reports an agreement with the EPA says the city can be fined two grand for each overflow.
Right now the city is being fined $60,000.
The city's Director of Water quality told the paper that overflows are inevitable.
