CABOT, Vt. (AP) - Cabot Creamery’s permit to dispose of its dairy processing wastewater by spreading it on agricultural lands in 33 Vermont towns is up for renewal.

The cheesemaker has requested to have a few more fields added to the list of places it can spray whey and wastewater from cleaning the plant onto agricultural fields and inject it into manure pits.

Those additions, and the permit renewal, will be discussed at a public hearing in Cabot Monday.

Vermont Public Radio reports (https://bit.ly/1LtpTSK ) that groups concerned about the runoff from the wastewater asked for the hearing.
