Le Sueur Egg-washing Facility Fined 20 Oct 17

Minnetonka-based M.G. Waldbaum Company has agreed to pay a $32,900 penalty for wastewater violations at its eggwash facility in Le Sueur, as part of an enforcement action by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.

Inspections by MPCA staff revealed that the company discharged more contaminants than allowed in its wastewater, did not fulfill all monitoring, reporting, and record maintenance requirements detailed in its permit, and didn’t follow other necessary procedures.

The facility’s violations endangered nearby groundwater and lakes and streams. Waldbaum has taken corrective steps and submitting required reports.
