$25K reward offered for culprits who dumped liquid silicone into sewer

Law enforcement is looking for the person or persons who dumped 1,300 gallons of silicone based liquid into the Eastern Idaho Regional Sewer District's sewer system last year. 

Someone in the Shelley area dumped more than 1,300 gallons of silicone-based liquid into the Eastern Idaho Regional Sewer District’s collection system last year, causing more than $1 million in damage.

The district is offering a reward of up to $25,000 in exchange for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of those responsible.

The district treats wastewater collected from the cities of Ammon and Shelley and portions of Bonneville and Bingham counties, according to its website.

This event occurred in the Shelley area, on or about Feb. 14, 2022, and caused damages that significantly affect the Oxbow Water Reclamation Facility’s processing capacity and efficiencies, a district news release said.

Anyone with information about the crime is asked to contact Bingham County Sheriff’s detective Blake Davis at 208-785-1234. Tipsters can remain anonymous.

For information, contact the Eastern Idaho Regional Sewer District Office by emailing admin@eirsd.org.
