Guilty pleas entered in Coldstream water contamination case

The District of Coldstream, Pan-O-Ramic Farms and Pan-O-Ramic's then-owner, Ernest Rodney Palfrey, entered guilty pleas in Vernon Provincial Court for their part in the contamination of a water source in January 2010.

Palfrey, on behalf of himself and Pan-O-Ramic farms, pleaded guilty  to one count each of introducing waste into the environment causing pollution in connection with foreign matter getting into the Antwerp Springs water source in January 2010.

The source, decommissioned after the Duteau Creek facility was put into use, had 1,800 users in Coldstream.

Palfrey and Pan-O-Ramic were each fined $1,000, and they also agreed to contribute $7,000 each to the Habitat Conservation Trust Fund.

The district was fined $16,000 after pleading guilty to one count of failing to provide potable water.
