SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - A Sheboygan County frozen pizza plant has been fined $17,000 by the state Justice Department for violating the state’s waste water and pollution discharge laws.  Sheboygan County Circuit Court Judge L. Edward Stengel ruled in favor of the state Thursday against Luige’s Frozen Pizza Inc. of the Town of Holland.

The initial complaint was filed in January of 2012, claiming the company failed to file appropriate papers with the DNR regarding monitoring of a detention pond for wastewater discharging from the plant.

The fine will cover forfeiture and penalty costs, and the ruling will require the company to complete evaluations of their pond with DNR supervision for any pollutants that could seep into nearby groundwater.
