Stanstead Journal - - FROM PAGE ONE - Pot­ton

On June 26th, Miche­line McDuff, of Pot­ton Town­ship, was found guilty of a vi­o­la­tion of the Re­gle­ment sur les ex­ploita­tions agri­coles. On April 28th, 2010, Mrs. McDuff, a landowner, did not take the nec­es­sary mea­sures to make sure that waste from an­i­mals did not reach sur­face or un­der­ground wa­ter, which goes against ar­ti­cle 5 of the Re­gle­ment. She was given a fine of $2000 and also must pay the court costs and re­im­burse the Min­istry of the en­vi­ron­ment for their le­gal fees of $1,004.
