Family, EPA settle cranberry bog case

Continue reading below

A Carver family has settled a decadelong dispute with federal environmental regulators over the filling of wetlands. Under the consent decree filed in Boston federal court Friday, the Johnson family agreed to restore 26 acres of wetlands and pay a $75,000 penalty to resolve charges that they violated the Clean Water Act at two sites at their cranberry farm. The Patriot Ledger reported that the terms of a proposed settlement are similar to those in a court order issued in 2005 and revived last year after a jury ruled that the federal Clean Water Act did apply to the farm. The case dates to 1999 when the US Environmental Protection Agency sued the Johnsons.
