Feedlots cited for pollution

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP)--The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has taken action against three beef feedlot operations in Iowa for allegedly violating the Clean Water Act.

In a statement June 9, EPA Regional Administrator Karl Brooks says in some instances inspectors have found harmful bacteria such as E. coli in wastewater discharged by feedlots at higher levels than permitted.

Bruce Feedlot of Hastings has agreed to pay a $31,573 civil penalty for its unauthorized discharges of pollutants to Indian Creek and its tributaries in Mills County, Iowa.

Groeneweg Farm of Rock Valley must apply for a Pollution Discharge Elimination System permit and complete wastewater controls at its facilities by October 2011 to end pollution of a tributary of the Rock River.

Gradert/Cla-Don/Winterfeld Feedlot of Ireton must also complete wastewater controls by Oct. 31, 2011, to end pollution of Six Mile Creek.
