Trucking companies' illegal dumping destroys nearly 20 acres of sensitive wetland
November 3, 2020
Two companies have been fined and tasked with the restoration of nearly 20 acres of wetland damaged by their years of illegal dumping.
Back in 2008, Bobby Wolford Trucking & Salvage, Inc. began delivering fill material and construction debris to Karl Frederick Klock Pacific Bison, LCC three miles east of Monroe, Washington.
For the next three years, Bobby Wolford Trucking & Salvage, Inc. proceeded to dump enough fill material and construction debris into the property's wetlands to fill 16 Olympic swimming pools, along with an immeasurable amount of debris into the Skykomish River and various other streams running through the property.
