U.S. EPA, DAIRYMAN'S COOPERATIVE SETTLE RIGHT-TO-KNOW COMPLAINT

U.S. EPA, DAIRYMAN'S COOPERATIVE SETTLE RIGHT-TO-KNOW COMPLAINT
 SAN FRANCISCO, July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) has settled a complaint against Dairyman's Cooperative Creamery Association, Tulare, Calif., for alleged violations of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA).
 As part of a consent agreement reached by the association and U.S. EPA, Dairyman's will pay a civil penalty of $30,000. The dairy-product manufacturer also agreed to undertake a number of supplemental environmental projects at an expense of more than $500,000. These include measures to reduce water consumption and the amounts of chlorine, nitric acid and phosphoric acid used in the cleaning of milk evaporation equipment at its facility.
 In addition, Dairyman's will conduct a one-day seminar for California dairy processors concerning the toxic release inventory (TRI) requirements of EPCRA.
 U.S. EPA had issued a complaint against the company's facility at 400 South M St. for failing to file reports estimating its releases of phosphoric acid, chlorine, and nitric acid into the environment during 1987, 1988 and 1989.
 EPCRA requires annual reports to U.S. EPA and the state from facilities with more than 10 employees that use or manufacture certain toxic chemicals over a specified threshold amount. The reports provide estimates of the amounts of each toxic chemical released to the environment or transferred to another facility.
 Further information on toxic release inventory reports may be obtained by calling U.S. EPA's toll-free Community Right-to-Know Hotline at 800-535-0202, or by writing to the Toxic Release Inventory Program, U.S. EPA, Region 9, 75 Hawthorne St., Mail Code A-4-3, San Francisco, CA 94105.
