Koster Obtains Injunction to Protect Lake Taneycomo
Last March, the Taney County Circuit Court enjoined the operators of two wastewater treatment lagoons from discharging raw, untreated sewage into a receiving stream of Lake Taneycomo.
Both operators agreed to pump untreated sewage from the inoperable wastewater treatment lagoons into trucks and haul it to an authorized wastewater treatment facility. The Attorney General took swift action to protect the pristine waters of Lake Taneycomo and the White River Basin. The Missouri Clean Water Law makes it unlawful for owners and operators of wastewater treatment facilities to put or place water contaminants, like raw sewage, into waters of the State.
