ATWATER, Minn. (AP) — An ethanol producer has paid $800,000 in civil penalties for wastewater violations and providing inaccurate information about the discharges.
The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency says Bushmills Ethanol violated its discharge permit at its production plant in the Kandiyohi County community of Atwater in 2008 and 2009.
The agency says Bushmills' penalty was especially high because of the misleading information it provided under its wastewater discharge permit.
