According to Wisconsin Public Radio, Interstate Energy Partners and Tiller Corp. were fined for allowing muddy water to escape from their facility in far northwestern Wisconsin. The spill was first reported by a concerned citizen hiking along the St. Croix River. It was determined that the fine grained sediment had been leaking into wetlands, a stream and the St. Croix for about a week.
