Deal Struck in Minneapolis Pollution Case

KSAL StaffOctober 6, 2015

A Kansas metal finishing business and its owner have struck a deal with the north-central community of Minneapolis to pay for illegally discharging untreated wastewater into the city sewer.

C&R Plating and its owner, Kevin L. Cline told a federal court Monday they had reached a settlement agreement to pay a lump sum of $225,000 in restitution, plus return some industrial land at no cost to the city. The defendants asked the court to adopt the restitution deal.

Cline was sentenced in July to four months in prison for violating the federal Clean Water Act. He admitted submitting fraudulent samples and reports to conceal the dumping.

The court ordered him to pay $281,503 in restitution, but allowed an alternate amount so long as it was acceptable to the city.
