Oil storage company with Cedar Rapids facility to pay EPA fine

CEDAR RAPIDS (AP) -

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

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

An Archer Daniels spokeswoman said Wednesday that she couldn't immediately comment.

The EPA says the company violations involved large oil storage facilities situated 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.
