DNR refuses to order well testing in waste hauler case

Relax, it’s relatively low:

Despite a plea from Jefferson County residents who live near fields where excessive amounts of human waste were spread, the state Department of Natural Resources has refused to order the waste hauler in the case to pay for tests of private wells in the area.

Cathy Stepp, DNR secretary, said in a letter to the residents that the potential for groundwater contamination from overspreading by Herr Environmental was “relatively low.”
