St. Louis Scrapyard Faces Fines for Failing to Manage Stormwater Discharge

LENEXA, KAN. – SA Recycling LLC of St. Louis, Missouri, will pay $68,000 in civil penalties to resolve alleged violations of the federal Clean Water Act. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the company failed to adequately control stormwater runoff from its scrap metal recycling and processing facility. EPA says that these failures could result in illegal discharges of pollution into the Mississippi River.

"Uncontrolled runoff from industrial facilities not only harms streams and rivers, but it also limits the public's use and enjoyment of those waters," said David Cozad, director of EPA Region 7's Enforcement and Compliance Assurance Division. "This settlement demonstrates EPA's commitment to protecting vital watersheds, especially in areas overburdened by pollution, and creating a level playing field with businesses who are complying with the law."
