Minnesota Power To Pay For State Park Improvements

Minnesota Power has agreed to make $53,000 in improvements at Jay Cooke State Park instead of paying a penalty for stormwater violations. The MPCA says Minnesota Power hired a contractor in 2012 to do excavation work near the utility’s boat launch on the Island Lake reservoir in Duluth. But the MPCA says they didn’t have a proper state permit and failed to take the proper precautions to prevent sediment from flowing into the reservoir, a popular fishing and recreation spot. They later took corrective actions.
