Kansas Foundry Could Pay $28,975 for Stormwater Violations

Posted on 6/1/2016 by Roger Marks

To settle allegations it violated the Clean Water Act stormwater requirements, a foundry in Coffeyville, KS will pay $28,975 and fund/implement a Supplemental Environmental Project (SEP) valued at $600,000. The settlement is open to public comment at EPA’s website, here.

According to an EPA press release, the business fell out of compliance with its industrial stormwater permit due to unauthorized discharges. In addition to permit violations, the company did not develop and update an adequate Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SPP Plan), did not perform required inspections, failed to conduct site compliance evaluations, did not conduct visual stormwater monitoring, failed to implement best management practice (BMPs) to reduce pollutants in stormwater runoff, and did not provide adequate employee training.

The SEP ordered consists of replacing a wet scrubber used to reduce air emissions from the site.

I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.
