The Iowa Department of Natural Resources has penalized a Washington County poultry facility. Sun-Jon Incorporated of Kalona failed to renew their permit for land application of wastewater, which expired the first of October, and are now being fined $3,000. Jon Tack, attorney for the DNR, says out of the handful of similar situations last year, this is the only case they weren’t able to resolve with the owners. He adds they’re unsure if the facility is still operating.
