Michigan dairy cited for manure spills

The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality announced its intention last week to sue a Dover Township dairy after seven manure spills that allegedly occurred in three years. Officials say the number of violations at the 600-cow VanderHoff-Haley Dairy combined with a lack of sufficient progress to improve manure handling led to the suit. Dairy owner Jan VanderHoff says he has not seen the lawsuit, and maintains that he has a good relationship with the DEQ.

The Michigan Sierra Club is cheering the impending legal action, as the dairy is one of several that’s monitored by volunteers of a Sierra Club-funded program. To read more from the Lenawee Connection, go to: http://www.lenconnect.com/articles/2004/08/06/news/news01.txt
