EPA issues $30,000 fine for illegal Nebraska dam
September 8, 2010
The EPA has issued a $30,000 fine to a Nebraska landowner and an earthmoving contractor for building an unapproved earthen dam
in Wayne County
. The EPA says the dam stopped up a portion of a tributary feeding Spring Branch Creek, and it should have been approved before construction by the Omaha District of the Corps of Engineers
, which has jurisdiction over the streams in the area.
