Sand and gravel pit operator fined

NEILLSVILLE, Wis. (WSAU) - A Neillsville mining operation will be paying the state of Wisconsin about $30,000 in penalties. 

Opelt Sand and Gravel operates a non-metallic mine in Clark County, but was in violation of DNR guidelines for stormwater discharge without the proper permits. The state ruled the violation a potential threat to the Black River, even though no discharges have happened in several years.

The company worked with the DNR, and they’ve already brought their sites into compliance with stormwater runoff rules.
