A Laclede County man is facing fines and cleanup costs after he pollutes the Niangua River. Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster has filed suit against George “Chet” Horman of Laclede County for violations of the state’s Hazardous Waste Management law. Horman allegedly started a bonfire on a gravel bar on the river using waste paint and solvents in an attempt to dispose of the material. The state department of natural resources spent $8,000 for cleanup. Koster is asking Horman to pay for the cleanup as well as a $10,000 civil penalty.
