EPA: Former Iowa Dairy Owner Will Pay $75,000

March 10, 2014, 7:39 PM

ROCK VALLEY, IA -

The former owner of a dairy in northwest Iowa will pay $75,000 to settle alleged water quality violations.

The Environmental Protection Agency said in a news release Monday that the civil penalty is in connection to Double V Dairy, near Rock Valley. The agreement settles any alleged violations of the Clean Water Act.

The agency says Double V Dairy discharged manure into Rogg Creek and its tributaries between 2010 and 2013. The dairy was sold in November 2013 and now has new owners.

The EPA conducted a series of inspections at the dairy between March and May of 2013. Officials say the manure discharges originated from stockpiles of used bedding sands that were outside in an uncontrolled area.
