Plainview Milk Products Cooperative MPCA Fine




A southeastern Minnesota dairy is being fined by the state's Pollution Control Agency. 


The agency says the Plainview Milk Products Cooperative allowed nearly seven-thousand gallons of cream to drain into the area's sewer system last April.


The spill overwhelmed the wastewater treatment plant's tank, sending a hundred gallons of wastewater mixed with cream into a ditch southeast of Plainview.


The dairy has been fined 20-thousand dollars and forced to recover the water that overflowed into the ditch.


The state is also asking the facility to find ways to prevent similar problems in the future
