Campground fails health inspection

Cannon Falls Beacon - Cannon Falls,MN,USA
Cory Axelson, the owner and operator of Hidden Valley Campground near Welch, said this week that he's well on his way to correcting deficiencies identified during an inspection by the Goodhue County Public Health Service in August.

The county's environmental health department tests the drinking water and inspects the campground annually. According to the August 18, 2008, inspection report, the campground was improperly handling garbage and recycling; had a number of safety hazards related to fires, hazardous waste disposal, and infestation; had six violations related to sewage disposal, two associated with plumbing issues, and one concerning fuel oil tanks. An additional order was issued citing unlicensed campsites added since the facility received its conditional use permit in 1981. Some of the issues had been noted as far back as 2001.

The report states that some sewage has been pumped directly onto the ground; the campground didn't have the required Minnesota Pollution Control Agency disposal system permit for the operation of a lagoon; and Axelson is not a licensed septic pumper, as required by MPCA.

A follow-up inspection two weeks later found that a number of items had been corrected and no new issues were identified. Since that second inspection, Axelson said, the other items on the inspection report have been fixed, or are works in progress.
