WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - The Wisconsin Public Service utility will pay $80,000 to settle a lawsuit over air quality violations at its Weston Power Plant near Wausau.
The state DNR said the utility committed a series of permit violations in 2008 and ’09, when the Weston-Four plant had excessive emission levels at various times.
Air management supervisor Jeff Johnson said the plant has not had any violations since the lawsuit was brought.
Johnson said the matter took a while to work through the court system, because of repeated violations five years ago. He said there were different violations over different periods of time.
Marathon County Circuit Judge Jill Falstad approved the settlement earlier this week.
