The Platteville Golf and Country Club will pay $12,000 for the grading and filling of a streambed and wetlands without obtaining a permit from the state Department of Natural Resources, according to a news release from Attorney General’s J.B. Van Hollen office.

The complaint alleges that during a golf course expansion project the country club illegally filled in a stream that is a tributary to the Little Platte River, graded more than 10,000 square feet of the bed and banks of the stream and illegally filled adjacent wetlands, according to the release.

The golf course has removed the fill and restored the site, according to the release, and must monitor it for stability.

The stipulation, according to the release, was approved by Grant County Circuit Court Judge Robert VanDeHey.
