Iowa Coalition Files Notice Of Intent To Possibley Sue Hog Farm

An Iowa coalition of community, environmental and animal welfare groups have filed a notice of intent to sue Maschoff farms for alleged repeated manure discharges from its Van Buren County Iowa facility.  Iowa Citizens For Community Improvement Organizer Jess Mazour says there is a two month period before any actual court action may take place.

Mazour says they’re hoping it will lead to not only the Van Buren County facility to getting a Clean Water Act Permit but will extend to other farm operations in the state.

She says besides seeking permit and possible court action, ICCI will be working with state legislators in January to come up with tougher environmental regulations.

Mazour says the coalition intends to  put pressure on the State DNR, the Governor and the legislature to see that stricter permits rules and regulations are in place and enforced.
