Computer Data Seized As FBI Looks Into Wastewater Treatment Plant

In a rare intersection between the worlds of FBI probes and wastewater treatment, federal officials are pursuing an investigation in Sioux City, Iowa.

News that the FBI seized city computer data as part of an investigation into the Sioux City regional wastewater plant broke early this month, but details were not immediately available. For instance, it’s not clear what exactly the FBI is looking for in the data, or who, specifically, they are investigating. It’s not even certain that any criminal charges will stem from the investigation.
