A Madison company that polluted waters during a sandmining operation in the city of Blair will pay $200,000 in forfeitures and costs.

Preferred Sands of Wisconsin LLC didn’t notify the state’s Department of Natural Resources when it processed 100 railcars of sand from a different site while expanding its operation, according to a news release from the state Attorney General’s office. It also did not use pollution prevention practices to prevent water contamination.

The actions occurred after Preferred Sands acquired the land in December 2011.

The settlement and judgment was entered Thursday in front of Trempealeau County Circuit Judge John Damon.
