About 3,500 gallons of industrial wastewater discharged at the Roquette America, Inc. plant in Keokuk.  This comes withing 24 hours of the previous discharge, which sent 500 gallons into the Mississippi River. 

The condensate may have contained ethanol and related compounds, but that will not be known until sampling results are in.  The company stopped the pump and repaired it shortly after the discharge.
