The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency has assessed a $15,000 civil penalty against Hendren Farms, Johnstown, Ohio, for three manure discharges into a creek during 2001 and 2002. The discharges occurred as a result of rain after a land application and from a leak in an earthen storage facility.

As part of the settlement the 250-cow dairy will use $10,556 of the fine to purchase additional equipment to minimize chances of manure discharges in the future. The remaining $4,444 will go to the Ohio EPA for educational programs.
