Falsified Air Pollution Reports Costing This Fish Processing Plant Big Time

Westward Seafoods—a company that processes fish and other sea life for food—recently lost a settlement from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a result of false reporting on their air pollution controls. In violation of the Clean Air Act (CAA) it is reported that Westward Seafoods released 105 tons of harmful nitrous oxide into the air. Sadly this is not their first CAA violation. The company now must invest over $1 million in reducing their pollution footprint and another $1.3 million in civil penalties.
