  • Pumpers busted epa, bad boys!!!!!

    WHO KNOWS OF THIS ONE? About 20 years ago was visiting My Mother in Law. She called a out a pumper, and He told Me this one. A local pumper had extensive land off and main roads. He bragged They had been dumping on their own land for Years. He said the fine was LARGE! Marshall creek Poconos Penn. area.

    There was a guy in my area that had a land aplication permit but didn't follow the rules. He did jail time for that one!

      The DNR just busted a guy in northen Wisconsin for that. The fines in this state start at ten grand. And then they want you to restore the dumping site. I think his fine was like $250,000. I think hes out of business. Everyone wants to cut corners. Be it over weight or over applying. The DNR is checking log book in Wisconsin. I think there will be more pumper in a jam. Those who land spread on unapproved sites make everyone look bad.Then custmers think hes just driving around the corner and dumping it where ever and he want how much. We take everything to the plant, it cost more less head aches.

            With disposal fees what they are, I'd be surprised if there wasn't a bunch of this going on. It's got to be tempting when half your gross gets eaten up in disposal fees.
            This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

              We just had this discussion. The county next door charges $135.00 for 1000 gallons.

                In San Rafael Ca. this past week, I saw this. A private pump truck, Emptying his truck into a street Manhole. this was during daylight hrs., a main st. 1st time I ever saw this.
                All I can think is He had done some Buss. with the city. I can't imagine any one having stones that big otherwise!

                  Trust me tool, I know the other people here in the same business and I've seen about every get-around-dirty trick in the book.

                      I was hinting for you to tell us more

                      All you said was:

                      So that's all I know ;-)

                      I guess I was asking for more info.....

                        I know a guy who increased his tap to 6" one sunday afternoon on the main line crossing his plumbing business, ran 2 trucks. He'd run his trucks till full, come back to the shop and leave that truck full till a hard rain, then let that truck dump into that main off his lateral at 30%, not to look too conspicuous.

                        Would take a few hours to unload, made sure nothing was extreme.

                        Did it for 20 plus years, never got caught. Just think about how much money he collected, and that sewage still went to the same place.

                            Offen time when cleaning lift stations or when a force main goes down. The city dosent want to pay any more trucking that is needed so you will just dump THEIR waste in THEIR man hole. There is so much paper work.Here the home owner get a letter. We need to sign it and sent that letter in with where we went with the waste. At the end of the year you file all the paper and the numbers need to match. My sewer dosent have a DNR disposal site number that will work.
