Two business violated City of Columbia environmental standards according to the wastewater treatment plant.

Kraft Heinz on Waco Road, exceeded the city’s limits for oil and grease emissions. A sample collected in May, exceeded the permit limit by about 38 percent.

The city also said Watlow Electic on Pennsylvania Drive had a nickel level higher than that facility is allowed to emit.

Sometime during the beginning of the year, Watlow Electric released about 12 percent more nickel than is permitted.
