Now, what will happen? Will it be closed down? Will another operator be allowed to buy it? This place has been creating havoc on the health of people for several years. When the owner sought a permit, he was held up as a beacon of hope for economic development. What was used as the prime example of success? A dairy in Veblen.
The problem with these permits is that the owner/operators are not held accountable when things go wrong. It is a microcosm of the too big to fail mentality.

If you click on the link put up by Lady Hawk, you find that 4 of Rick Millner's dairy operations are in trouble. And if you go out to Madville Times today there is a report that the South Dakota Legislature Executive Board will audit the DENR this summer. Only 2 audits will be done this summer. These audits are to determine the need for and effectiveness of state programs. It is recommended folks affected by the Veblen CAFOs and other sources of pollution in South Dakota watch the summer meeting schedule and plan to write letters or attend the meeting
