ADM TO PAY $430,000 FINE FOR CLEAN WATER ACT VIOLATIONS
BrownfieldAgNews reports:

Archer Daniels Midland Company has agreed to settle allegations that it violated the Clean Water Act at five of its storage facilities in Iowa, Nebraska and Missouri.

The EPA says the facilities, which store large amounts of oil, failed to develop required Facility Response Plans that address worst-case discharges of oil.

The ADM facilities are at Mexico and Deerfield, Missouri; Cedar Rapids and Des Moines, Iowa; and Columbus, Nebraska.

In a prepared statement from the company, spokesperson Jackie Anderson says ADM has an environmental compliance program in place to meet the company's environmental obligations.

In addition to resolving the violations, ADM has agreed to pay a civil penalty of $430,000.
