Defiance County commissioners discussed an Ohio EPA finding against Garden Ridge Nursery during their Thursday meeting. The composting and nursery operation at 05557 Ohio 66 was issued a notice of violation of Ohio Revised Code chapter 611, section 04 (A) (1) by Ohio EPA for discharging wastewater into waters of the state on Aug. 19. The facility was ordered to stop the migration of waste leachate from the discharge tile, remove the waste leachate from the creek approximately 200 yards downstream from Ohio 66 and return the liquid back to its detention pond.
