Wyoming welder faces $75,000 a day in EPA fines for building pond on his property
All Andy Johnson wanted to do was build a stock pond on his sprawling eight-acre Wyoming farm. He and his wife Katie spent hours constructing it, filling it with crystal-clear water, and bringing in brook and brown trout, ducks and geese.

He claims the agency is now threatening him with civil and criminal penalties – including the threat of a $75,000-a-day fine.
