The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality has issued a $2,800 fine to the City of Clatskanie.

The fine follows repeated failures at the city's sewer plant. The violations are of the DEQ's National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NEPDES) permit that regulates the city's wastewater treatment plant.
