January 6, 2010, Atlanta,
GA – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued Administrative
Orders (AOs) against nine entities throughout the Southeast during the last
quarter of 2009 for violations of the Clean Water Act (CWA).

Among those charged was
Peachy Dairy, Inc. The farm facility received an AO for violations of
Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations requirements of the CWA at its facility
in Myakka City, FL. The order requires Peachy Dairy to cease the improper
disposal of deceased animals in order to come into compliance with the
facility’s approved nutrient management plan and permit. Further, Peachy Dairy
is required to provide quarterly sampling reports for its waste storage pond to
determine nutrient levels.

“By taking these
enforcement actions, we are sending a strong message about the importance of
protecting rivers, lakes and streams across the Southeast,” said Stan Meiburg,
EPA Region 4 Acting Regional Administrator. “To protect our region’s waters,
these regulated entities must comply with the Clean Water Act and promptly take
the steps needed to resolve the violations noted in our inspections.”
