DEC: Cayuga County farm will have to pay $110K fine after manure pit overflow

A Cayuga County farm will pay more than $100,000 in penalties and adhere to a state monitoring plan after a consent order was agreed to last month.

Ashland Farm was cited in March for a manure storage pit overflow. An unknown amount overflowed and entered a stormwater pipe that discharged to an unnamed tributary of Great Gully Brook.


No fish were killed, according to the DEC.

The farm’s owner, Stephen Talcott, will be required to pay $111,250 in penalties by April 1, according to The Citizen.

This is the fourth consent order issued against the farm over the last decade. The others were for significantly less.
