The Police Department began investigat- ing the request on March 12. The business has been the subject of on- going enforcement actions by the OLCC, and the existing license is in the revocation pro- cess, said Police Chief Bob Burford. In re- cent years, the business has been the subject of frequent noise complaints, primarily from nearby campgrounds. "The primary contact person for the new applicants will be out of the United States for several years and will be depending on fam- ily members and employees for day-to-day operations," Burford said. "However, based upon the overall investigation, the department found no reason to recommend denial of this change of ownership." VI..11 (.CMM! JNITV Rainfall forces city to bypass Photo by Scott Swanson Ames .Creek, right, gushes into the South Santiam River Saturday be'low the Sweet Home sewage treatment plant. h Te r.. April 4, 20] 2 was tewc, 00!er in to river Sweet Home's Wastewater Treatment Plant bypassed untreated wastewater into" the South Santiam River during last week's rain storm. The discharge started at 6:44 p.m. on March 30 and ended at t a.m. on March 31. The bypass was caused by high flow due to the rain storm, according to the city's notification. Storm water leaks into the system deteriorated sewer pipes during storms and through cross connections with storm drains. This process is called inflow and infiltration. The plant is not large enough to handle the excess wastewater, and it is bypassed into the river. The city has been operating under an agreement with the Department of Environmental Quality for more than a decade to repair the problem, and the city is in its fourth sewer line repair project under the agreement. In exchange, the city is not fined for the bypasses. Following completion of the project, city officials are likely to propose an expansion of the plant.
