Spanish Peaks Mountain Club working to fix leak in wastewater treatment pond

Posted: Updated:

BIG SKY - Spanish Peaks Mountain Club in Big Sky found a leak in its wastewater treatment pond which is used for irrigating the golf course during summer.

The leak is approximately 4 gallons per minute, of which Lone Mountain Land Company estimates 2 gallons per minute is naturally occurring groundwater, not effluent from the pond.

Dick Anderson Construction was in the process of performing leak testing on the pond, as required by the Montana Department of Environmental Quality when a small leak was discovered.

Lone Mountain Land Company says all testing is being done in compliance with MDEQ standards and requirements, and it is standard MDEQ operating procedure for any newly constructed pond of this type.

"Both Lone Mountain Land Company and Dick Anderson Construction are treating this issue with the utmost importance and have committed all necessary resources to remedy the situation as quickly as possible,” said Lone Mountain Director of Engineering Jon Olson.

“Dick Anderson is in the process of draining the pond to find the small leak, which we are hopeful will occur in the next day or two.  Water is being drained from the pond 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  All work is being performed in conjunction with the MDEQ staff," Olson said.

According to Lone Mountain Land Company, Dick Anderson Construction has installed a containment system as an additional precautionary measure. The system captures leaking effluent and pumps it back into the pond.

Lone Mountain also said the tributaries are not being affected by the wastewater and it is uncertain when the construction company will have this problem resolved.
