Cal Poly

San Lois Obispo, CA: (Feb-08-07) A complaint filed by water officials in 2006 accused Cal Poly of violating clean water rules. Cal Poly allegedly disposed of waste water from its dairy and swine units by using it to irrigate pasture. University officials agreed to pay $60,000 in fines to state water quality officials after inspections showed that waste water from the school's livestock unit was polluting Brizzolara Creek, a small waterway that flows through the campus. The agreement also included stabilizing the eroding bank and replanting the area with native shrubs and trees, designed to improve the wildlife habitat of the creek, particularly for threatened steelhead trout that spawn in the creek. The project will be handled by the Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County. [SAN LUIS OBISPO TRIBUNE: CAL POLY POLLUTION]
