 SARVER, Pa., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Sylvan Foods Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: SYLN) today announced that its Moonlight Mushrooms, Inc. subsidiary has executed a Consent Order and Agreement with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources which provides for compliance with state environmental laws governing wastewater discharges and for settlement of claims for past violations. The Worthington, Pa.-based mushroom farm is located in a rural area not served by a municipal wastewater treatment system and compliance measures include the elimination or collection and treatment of wastewaters and the installation of controls for nutrient management on farmland which the company owns. The Consent Order targets Dec. 31, 1996, for completion of farmland controls, and Dec. 31, 1997, for elimination or treatment of wastewaters.
 As part of the settlement, Moonlight agreed to pay a civil penalty of $250,000 over a five-year period, plus $1,000 per month until full compliance is achieved. The company will also contribute $100,000 over a five-year period to the Armstrong County, Pa., Conservation District in return for technical assistance in designing and implementing the nutrient management controls.
 William P. Mooney, chief financial officer, stated that, "A settlement of this nature has been anticipated for some time, and the company has adequately provided for the penalties." He further indicated that the conclusion of this matter will enable Moonlight's management to concentrate on improving the farm's production efficiency.
