Archer Daniels Midland settles EPA allegations

Federal regulators say Archer Daniels Midland Company has agreed to settle allegations that it violated Clean Water Act rules at facilities where it stored fuels and oil in Iowa, Nebraska and Missouri.

The Environmental Protection Agency says Decatur, Illinois-based ADM will pay a civil penalty of $430,000.

Archer Daniels Midland spokeswoman Jackie Anderson said the company worked with regulators to address their regulators.

Anderson says ADM has a compliance program in place to protect the environment.

The EPA says the company violations involved large storage facilities for denatured ethanol, fuels and lubricants in Cedar Rapids and Des Moines, Deerfield and Mexico, Missouri; and Columbus, Nebraska.

The EPA says violations included a lack of EPA-required spill response plans and violations of industrial stormwater requirements for Clean Water Act operating permits.
