SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A federal judge has fined a South Ogden radiator shop $40,000 for dumping water laced with lead, zinc, oil and grease down a sewer drain.

The company that owns J-Mac Radiator pleaded guilty last week to eight violations of the Clean Water Act in U.S. District Court in Salt Lake City.

Judge Tena Campbell fined the company $5,000 for each of the eight counts. The company says it will create a companywide program to make sure it stays in compliance with federal rules. That program will now be part of employee training.
