Edmonton, Alb – A Hutterite colony in southwestern Alberta has been fined for
having an illegal liquid manure lagoon.

A provincial court judge
ordered the White Lake colony near Blairmore to pay $71,500 for building and
operating the earthen lagoon without a permit.

The manure is generated
by a hog farm owned by the Hutterites and is regulated by the Natural Resources
Conservation Board
.

The fine was agreed to
by both sides after the colony pleaded guilty.

A provincial court judge
also placed the colony on probation for three years, and ordered that no manure
be allowed to enter the lagoon unless approved by the conservation board.
