Environmental groups threaten to sue pig farm

Posted: Updated:
TRENTON, N.C. - The Neuse Riverkeeper Foundation and the Waterkeeper Alliance notified Stilley Farm that they would file a lawsuit if Stilley didn't clean up it's act.

According to both organizations, Stilley sprays large amounts of pig waste on fields that eventually lead into ditches. From there, the waste is carried to area waterways.

Larry Baldwin, the North Carolina Coordinator for the Waterkeeper Alliance, says the farm needs to change how they get rid of waste.

"There is technology that is available to put a treatment system on these farms, to treat that waste, and that's what we're asking for," Baldwin said.
