MARYVILLE, MO (2009-08-17) KXCV News has learned the City Of Maryville will have to pay more than $30,000 to settle a lawsuit with the EPA but it will cost even more than that.
The Environmental Protection Agency says The Civil Suit will cost $33,000, including a cash payment of $24,000 to Federal Authorities plus it will have to install a new Energy Efficient Water Pump at the Sewage Treatment Plant. The EPA says the penalties come from Maryville's failure to conduct required inspections on seven local industries identified as "Significant Water Users".Those include 'LMP Steel', 'Federal Mogul', 'Deluxe Printing', 'Eveready/Energizer', 'Kawasaki', 'Laclede Chain', and 'St. Francis Hostpital'. This happened during 2005 and 2006. But not inspecting these industries, The City violated EPA regulations but the investigation found it still didn't cause any violations of Maryville's water discharge limits.
