MURRAY COUNTY, Okla. -- The Mahard Egg Farm south of Sulphur, Oklahoma, is in trouble with the Environmental Protection Agency.

The EPA has ordered the farm on Boogie Hill to stop discharging pollution into a creek.

It's a cease and desist administrative order for violations of the Clean Water Act.

The pollution reportedly flows into the east branch of Chigney Sandy Creek, then into a lake in Garvin County.

The farm has been given 14 days to clean up the shores and 45 days to submit a report documenting the work.
