According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5, the agency has ordered Mondt Dairy Farm in Aviston, Ill., to stop discharging stormwater and process wastewater, apply for a wastewater discharge permit from Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and come into compliance with the Clean Water Act.

Mondt Dairy Farm is a medium-sized confined animal feeding operation (CAFO) with a capacity for 350 cows. EPA conducted a flyover and subsequent inspection of the dairy and allegedly found several violations of the Clean Water Act.

The agency says it determined the need for a wastewater discharge permit and the installation of waste containment structures to prevent the discharge of process wastewater to Sugar Creek.
