DEQ once again let Winchester Water Control District off the hook cheap by fining them a paltry $134,378 for ten permit violations. During the Winchester Dam repair in 2021, DEQ fined Winchester Water Control District $53,578 for just one violation – releasing wet concrete into the river. This time, Winchester Water Control District repeated the same 2021 violation twice and then failed to self-report it as required by law, not to mention the other 9 violations.

What do you want to bet that you or I would have been fined 11 times that original fine? Why is DEQ so bad at math?
