Foxconn subsidiary fined in connection with flooding

MILWAUKEE (AP) — A subsidiary of Foxconn Development Corp. has been fined nearly $1,200 in connection with flooding at the company’s construction site caused by heavy rains in Wisconsin during the Labor Day weekend.

The state Department of Natural Resources says it issued the citation to FEWI Development Corp. because the company failed to fully construct a storm water basin on the Mount Pleasant property that would have caught the runoff before making it to Pike River.

The Taiwan-based electronics company is constructing a $10 billion manufacturing plant to produce liquid crystal display panels. The company could employ as many as 13,000 people across Wisconsin.

Foxconn says in a statement that the company is reviewing the DNR’s findings and “issues that are the focus of the citation will not be repeated.”
