Lunda to pay $100,000 for pollution violations

Lunda Construction Co. of Black River Falls Friday agreed to pay $100,000 in forfeitures because of water pollution violations stemming from a 2008 construction incident.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice brought six charges against Lunda relating to the company’s work on a sanitary sewer lift station near County Highway PP in the city of Plymouth.

Lunda’s discharge was regulated by a water pollution control permit issued by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, according to a release from the Wisconsin Attorney General’s office.

Lunda’s violations of the permit were discovered through DNR water testing on April 4 and 5, 2008. The DNR also found — on April 8, 15 and 16, 2008 — Lunda’s wastewater treatment system, known as silt bags, were “visibly failing to prevent discharge of (sediment in the water),” according to the release.

  1. I find it very interesting that Lunda is held accountable by the DNR yet MMSD can dump billions, yes, it’s billions, of rain water mixed with raw sewage into Lake Michigan. Where are you DNR, EPA?
