Postville Meat Processor, EPA Reach Settlement Over Violations

Postville, Iowa (AP) – The federal Environmental Protection Agency has reached a settlement that requires a kosher meat processing plant in northeastern Iowa to pay a $43,000 penalty.

The EPA says Agri Star Meat & Poultry, of Postville, Iowa, agreed to the settlement to resolve industrial storm water violations of the federal Clean Water Act discovered last year. Under the settlement, Agri Star must also comply with its industrial storm water permit.

The EPA says Agri Star failed to develop and update an adequate storm water pollution prevention plan, perform plant inspections, conduct annual evaluations and other monitoring, among other things.
