WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The Iowa man convicted of violating the Clean Air and Clean Water Act will serve prison time.

Michael J. Wolf, age 58, from Remsen, Iowa, plead guilty to one count of knowingly discharging a pollutant into a waterway of the United States in December 16, 2014.

In 2012, while he was the maintenance manager at Sioux-Preme Packing, intentionally discharged biological materials and agricultural wastes from one of Sioux-Preme’s waste lagoons into a tributary of the West Branch of the Floyd River.

It killed over 190,058 fish of various species and caused the State of Iowa to expend more than $5,000 in response costs. 

Wolf's sentence will include six weekends in prison and one year probation.
