DES MOINES – DNR staff work with individuals, businesses and communities to help them protect our natural resources by complying with state and federal laws. This approach is very effective. In the few cases where compliance cannot be achieved, the DNR issues enforcement actions. The following list summarizes recent enforcement actions. Find the entire, original orders on DNR’s website at 

Consent Orders A consent order is issued as an alternative to issuing an administrative order. A consent order indicates that the DNR has voluntarily entered into a legally enforceable agreement with the other party.

Respond to future UST compliance inspection deficiencies within 60 days or as otherwise agreed to; submit to DNR the emergency response/spill instruction guidance for facility operators; ensure at least one certified operator will be on-site whenever the store is operating; and pay a $3,500 administrative penalty.
