DEFIANCE - Garden Ridge Nursery in Defiance has been issued a wastewater discharge permit by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, even though the agency acknowledged it has cited the facility for repeated violations.
The facility accepts animal waste and yard waste for composting. "There have been long-term compliance issues at the facility including unauthorized wastewater discharges documented by Ohio EPA," the agency said.
Under the permit, Garden Ridge will be required to document its actions and stay in compliance with the federal Clean Water Act.
