Area entities among MPCA violations

Three area enforcement cases were part of the 68 that the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency reported during the second quarter of 2014.

Red Wing Cabinetry was fined $2,025 for air quality violations, Lake City wastewater treatment plant was fined $1,775 for water quality violations and Concast Inc. in Zumbrota was fined $3,900 for storm water violations.

The 68 enforcement cases were spread among 41 counties throughout Minnesota and penalties totaled just more than $735,000, the agency reported.

Fines are only part of the enforcement process, the MPCA said; staff provides assistance, support and information on compliance for businesses and government entities that request it.
