Among the violations cited is the discharging of manure into a wetland. Thomas was also cited for building bridges and dams without permits, enlarging a pond without a permit and tearing down a barn without notice of intent. The violations could result in a fines amounting to $10,000 per day, according to the letter.He's set for a Jan. 6 meeting with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, which Thomas says should go smoothly. He says he's in the process now of retroactively obtaining permits for the work. The manure discharge is another story, as illegal dumping and the like isn't taken kindly even here in Cleveland.
