Maple Grove Farms Fined Following Attorney General Environmental Lawsuit

(LE MARS, Iowa)  Plymouth County District Court Judge Steven J. Andreasen has entered judgment against Maple Grove Farms, LLC, assessing a $10,000 civil penalty, requiring payment of a prior administrative penalty and interest in the amount of $4,340, and enjoining further violations. 

The judgment, entered Friday, resolves a lawsuit filed by Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller.  In March Miller’s office sued Maple Grove Farms for failure to submit annual updated manure management plans, failure to pay compliance fees for six confinement feeding operations in Plymouth County, and for land-applying manure without an approved manure management plan.  The suit also sought enforcement of a prior Administrative Order by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources assessing a penalty and requiring compliance with manure management requirements.
