Ar. (news-leader) — Clean-up is officially underway at a now-closed hog farm in Arkansas.
We’ve reported on the C and H Hog Farm and concerns that waste ponds on the property might overflow and spill into a creek that flows into the Buffalo National River six miles away.
The state paid the owners 6.2 million dollars to stop operations on the land.
According to the news-leader, the waste lagoons are now being drained and contaminated soil is being scraped away.
Clean-up costs are nearly $750,000.
