Construction Co. Pays $2M for Toxic Stormwater Runoff
In early May, a U.S. District Court Judge ordered Kernen Construction Co. to pay over $2 million for violating the federal Clean Water Act. This construction company admitted to allowing toxic pollutants such as lead, copper, aluminum and other harmful contaminants, that are dangerous to both humans and animals, to enter the nearby waterways. These waterways led to Hall creek which is home to a small and endangered population of salmon. The Californians for Alternatives to Toxics (CATs) is asking the court to stop all of Kernen Construction Co. water discharge until the company can come into compliance with state requirements.
