MPCA Fines for Baxter and an Area Business

The city of Baxter and Tom's Backhoe Service of Brainerd have paid the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency a combined civil penalty of 20 thousand dollars for alleged stormwater violations.

The violations occurred in 2007 at the Cedar Scenic Road water and sewer project in Baxter. Violations included failing to maintain proper silt fencing, failing to stabilize ditches and ditch banks, and failing to properly dissipate dewatering outlets. These violations resulted in excess erosion and allowed sediment-laden stormwater to discharge into local wetlands
