           EPA SETTLES WITH STONE CONTAINER CORPORATION,
         PANAMA CITY, FLA., FOR HAZARDOUS WASTE VIOLATIONS
    ATLANTA, Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced today that Stone Container Corporation, Containerboard and Paper Division, Panama City, Fla., has entered into a Consent Agreement with the agency, which includes, for the first time in the region, a pollution reduction project as part of the settlement.
    The agreement settles a complaint that was issued against the company on Feb. 19 for alleged violations of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), as amended.  Specifically, the violations include the placement of corrosive hazardous wastes into an unpermitted surface impoundment which is in violation of the RCRA Land Disposal Restriction rule.
    As part of the settlement, Stone Container Corporation has agreed to pay a civil penalty in the amount of $244,800 for all violations alleged in the civil complaint.  The company must pay $100,000 of the penalty within 30 days of receipt of the agreement. In lieu of the remaining civil penalty of $144,800, the company will perform a pollution reduction project at its facility.  It is estimated that this project will cost approximately $578,000.
    The project involves the purchase and installation of equipment which will significantly reduce the amount of chemicals necessary to purify water for plant use.  This action will result in a reduction of the amount of chemicals that will be discharged to the wastewater treatment plant.
    Stone Container Corporation is located at One Everitt Avenue in Panama City and operates as a manufacturer of paper products.
