Feds probe sabotage at West Milford water plant
(AP) - Homeland Security members are to meet Friday with officials to discuss sabotage at a New Jersey water and sewer plant.
West Milford's Municipal Utility Authority has been plagued by a series of attacks since July in which power was shut off, valves were opened and a wood plank was thrown into a sewage filtration system.
Jersey Environmental Solutions owner Eric Williams, who maintains the system, told The Record newspaper the sabotage has caused residents in at least 60 homes to lose water pressure threetimes and resulted in numerous sewage spills.
The latest incident occurred Tuesday when sewage poured into the street near the MUA's Bald Eagle facility after someone interfered with the switches for the pumps.
Williams told the newspaper the incidents "border on, or actually are, terrorism."
