GLOUCESTER FISH PLANT SETTLES IN CLEAN WATER ACT SUIT

 BOSTON, Nov. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- O'Donnell-Usen Fisheires, Inc., a subsidiary of Conagra, will pay $375,000 to the federal government in settlement of claims for past violations of the Clean Water Act during the operation of a fish processing facility in Gloucester, Massachusetts.
 U.S. Attorney A. John Pappalardo announced that a stipulation of dismissal was filed today in federal district court in Boston which resolves a 1989 enforcement action brought against O'Donnell-Usen by the United States on behalf of the Environmental Protection Agency. The 1989 complaint alleged that O'Donnell-Usen's facility in Gloucester repeatedly discharged wastewater to the City of Gloucester wastewater treatment plant in violation of local and federal "pretreatment" standards for oil and grease, total suspended solids, and biochemical oxygen demand.
 O'Donnell-Usen came into compliance with discharge standards in 1990, and its Gloucester facility is no longer in operation.
 The enforcement case was handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Roberta T. Brown, of Pappalardo's Civil Division, in coordination with Tonia Bandrowicz, Assistant Regional Counsel, EPA Region I.
