The state Environmental Protection Commission (EPC) has referred the owners of a feedlot in Kossuth County to the Attorney General’s Office for failure to submit manure management plans (MMP) and pay fees. Attorney Kelli Book told the EPC the feedlot near Lone Rock is owned by Shane and Michelle Larsen of Granada, Minnesota.
Book says it is important for the DNR to have the information.
The annual compliance fee is $180, and Book says the order was issued after the Larsens failed to submit the completed MMP and fee – and the administrative penalty was issued after 60 days.
Book says the Larsen’s have failed to submit an MMP update and paid the fee for 2022. The issue now goes to the Attorney General for action.
