The facility allowed its wastewater to reach a creek
Daybreak Foods Inc., located in Eagle Grove, Iowa, has been penalized by Iowa state authorities for allowing wastewater generated at the facility to reach a creek.
The facility, which produces eggs, will be made to pay an administrative penalty of $5,500, according to the Department of Natural Resources.
It is likely the wastewater was able to reach the creek due to heavy rains this past August washing away a field application of the wastewater. Daybreak Foods has allowances to spread its wastewater, but it is disallowed from allowing it to run into surface waters.
