Storm Water Pollution

Hastings, NE: (Oct-24-07) Attorney General Jon Bruning's office brought a lawsuit against Dutton-Lainson Co. of Hastings, alleging that the facility polluted the environment. The suit claimed that the company violated air temperature requirements outlined in its air quality permits in 2005. As part of a settlement reached, the company agreed to pay $25,000 in civil penalties to the Nebraska Common Schools Fund and $25,000 to the city of Hastings for a storm water treatment unit at Heartwell Park. Heartwell Park, located in the historic district of Hastings, is a center for recreational activity, including walking, jogging, duck watching and fishing. Nebraska Game and Parks stocks Heartwell Lake annually with fish. The lake is also a basin for the city's storm water runoff. Authorities stated that without proper treatment, debris would quickly fill the lake and threaten the wildlife. [NEBRASKA TV: STORM WATER POLLUTION]
