The EPA enforcement actions come in pairs this week, as two seafood processing facilities and two pipeline companies will pay to resolve alleged violations of the Clean Water Act. 


(UPDATED 02/02/18) US EPA last week filed a motion with the DC Circuit Court of Appeals to delay the effective date of chemical release reporting requirements applicable to animal waste at farms under two major EPA programs, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) and the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA).


In this week’s EPA Enforcement Roundup, an exterminator will pay $10 million in criminal fines for fumigating residential properties with products containing methyl bromide. Plus, a hazardous waste facility pays for RCRA permit violations and a seafood storage company is fined for failure to properly report a hazardous substance release.


In this week’s EPA Enforcement Roundup, the former owner of a Cleveland electro-plating facility is wanted for allegedly drilling holes in tanks of hazardous chemicals in an effort to sabotage the plant. Also, NYC will pay EPA for CERCLA hazardous substance cleanup, and a Massachusetts meat facility will pay six figures for Clean Air Act and EPCRA violations. 


In this week’s EPA Enforcement Roundup, four companies will pay more than $350,000 combined for chemical reporting violations under EPCRA and TSCA, and a paperwork storage company will pay for Safe Drinking Water Act violations. 


In this week's EPA Enforcement Roundup, an oil refinery and a bottle maker will pay for alleged violations of EPA rules and one company will pay to fund hazardous substance cleanup. 


This week, our EPA Enforcement Roundup features environmental settlements with a cement manufacturer in Nevada, a wood treatment plant in Maryland, and a petroleum distributor in Washington State.
