Koch refining to pay for violations
The Refining Co. will pay $40,000 to the state’s Superfund to resolve violations of state hazardous waste rules at its Rosemount refinery, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency announced recently.
The $40,000 penalty is part of a stipulation agreement with Koch, which is similar to
an out-of-court settlement, approved by the MPCA Citizens Board.
The agreement resolves past violations of hazardous waste rules, clarifies the mechanics of a ground water monitoring system to be built on the refinery site and sets forth a schedule for processing Koch’s application for a hazardous waste facility permit....
Koch also violated hazardous waste rules by operating a treatment facility without adhering to the interim status guidelines required prior to the application for a facility permit….
In addition to the $40,000 penalty, the agreement requires Koch to prepare an operational study of its land-based hazardous waste treatment system. Total cost of the study is expected to reach $10,000 to $15,000, Koch and MPCA officials said.
Rosemount ends up 12-4, eyes playoffs
It has been a good summer for the Rosemount American Legion baseball team. The team finished the regular season Wednesday, July 15 with a convincing 14-4, six-inning victory over St. Paul Park, giving it two wins in the last three games and a final season record of 12-4.
That mark earned Rosemount a first round bye in the Third District playoffs, and as the number three seed, Rosemount was scheduled to open with a home game Monday, July 20 in the eight-team, double elimination portion of the tournament....
Rosemount put on a hitting barrage in Wednesday’s win over St. Paul Park. Tim Thull and Brian Back both went 3-for-4 while Jesse Flies, McCaustlin and Ellingrud all went 2-for-4.
Todd Ratzlaff pitched 4 1/3 innings and held Park to just four hits, while Tony Price finished the six-inning game.

Rosemount farm cat controlling worm situation
Some folks may consider the dog as man’s best friend, but out at the C. Schwallow farm, Route 2, Rosemount, the family cat is proving that it is worth double its keep.
Stopping off at the Schwallow farm one day this week, a Tribune reporter was told that the pet feline, in addition to keeping the mouse condition under control, was busy these days devouring the green-horned tomato worm which is seriously infesting the Dakota County trees and vegetable gardens.
At the Schwallow place, the pests have stripped the grapevines clean of their leaves. In other county gardens the tomato worm is attacking peas, potatoes and parsely.
County Agent H. A. Lawerenz states that the pests can be controlled by spraying infested plants with calcium arsenate, lead arsenate, Paris green, or hellebrore.
