From the Associated Press via The Columbus Republic:

One of the company’s owners, Stephen Shute, said Tuesday he’s reviewing the order.

The company has oil and natural gas wells west of Walden in the North Park area. It has a permit to discharge treated produced water into Spring Gulch Creek, but a cease-and-desist order issued Tuesday says the company has been discharging copper and iron at levels above what’s allowed under its permit. The company received a similar order in 2010.
