Advocacy Groups Sue Washington Dairy Facility for Manure Dumping Practices

Community Association for Restoration of the Environment, Friends of Toppenish Creek, and the Center for Food Safety filed a lawsuit against View Point Dairy, a “large dairy CAFO” in the State of Washington, for alleged violations of the Solid Waste Disposal Act in connection with the dairy producer’s “open dumping” of solid animal waste. Plaintiffs are seeking declaratory judgment and injunctive relief, including an order for defendant to remediate environmental contamination it has caused.
