The former owner of a wastewater treatment facility in Orange has been indicted in federal court on charges of discharging untreated industrial waste into a sewer system in Orange County, authorities said Thursday.

Tim Miller, 64, of Wexford, Pennsylvania, was named along with his company, Klean Waters, in an indictment filed Wednesday that charges conspiracy and discharging without a permit into the Orange County Sanitation District, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Miller and company officials were scheduled to be arraigned in federal court May 3.

Miller and the company were accused of discharging untreated wastewater into the sanitation district’s system since 2012, when the company was established, prosecutors said. Some of the wastewater included pollutants such as firefighting foam and various metals, prosecutors alleged.
