GRANGER, Yakima County (AP) — A group of Yakima Valley dairies have agreed to reduce runoff pollution that's tainting the area's groundwater, officials announced Wednesday.
The agreement between the dairies and the Environmental Protection Agency comes more than five months after the agency published a study that said the dairies were likely to be one of the sources of nitrate pollution in nearby private water wells. The study was followed up by lawsuit threats from public interests groups.
