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.

    Hasn't Mahard Egg Farm been in trouble before? And I'm with you, Jonhn, I too have been run off the road (onto the shoulder)by their trucks!

    Hope the Mahard Egg Farm is completely shut down -- on 2 occassions I have essentially been forced off the road by their trucks driving recklessly --- one time a few years ago in an ice storm.
