Princeton bridge firm fined $17,500 for violations
Princeton’s newest bridges over the Rum River have won a handful of design awards for their aesthetic beauty.
But not all was rosy during the bridge construction.
The contractor that built the bridge has been accused of violations that resulted in contaminated storm water running off into the Rum River.
Lunda Construction Company has been penalized $17,500 by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) for the violations, which were discovered during site inspections between July and November 2010. See more in Editor Jeff Hage’s Princeton Union-Eagle story.
