Emerald Sky Dairy Update

 

There's been another violation at Emerald Sky Dairy.

They are currently constructing their new manure lagoon (the one that will "fix the issues that caused the major spill last year" and abandon their current lagoon after the new one is operational later this year).

However, on a routine check, the County discovered manure waste in the new lagoon before construction had been completed (no liner or tiling had been done).  Unfortunately, the fine from the County was only $389. 50....not much incentive to correct behavior.

Keep up-to-date on the latest on our Facebook page - there's much happening across the state and the nation, some of it positive with jury awards to neighbors of CAFOs in North Carolina.
