Last year, a group of farmers filed a lawsuit against the small town of Laketown, Wisconsin, in Polk County, saying that local regulations against a nearby CAFO could not be enforced.
Now, the nearby town of Eureka is looking to join Laketown to argue on behalf of the local government’s ability to regulate CAFOs.
Dan Gustafson is an attorney with Midwest Environmental Advocates, who are representing Eureka in their case.
