The MPCA has announced that they’ve fined District Energy in St. Paul for air permit violations to the tune of $55,000.00.  It’s a start.  This is something that’s gone on for so long, their air permit had expired years ago and the MPCA did nothing.  Now they have done a little something, well, it was a while ago, but somehow a story about the MPCA’s 2nd quarter reports popped up while I was on the STrib today:

Here’s the MPCA press release:
