MARYVILLE, MO (2009-11-09) Farmers in our region with anhydrous ammonia tanks could be getting inspections soon.
That's because a $75,000 grant has been given to Missouri that will allow inspectors to visit, educate, and implement the EPA's clean air risk management program. Officials say all fertilizer facilities that handle, process, or store more than 10,000 pounds of the chemical are subject to the EPA requirments. They say the grant money will help prevent accidental leaks and protect health and safety. In our EPA region, the agency says it gets more release reports for ammonia than any other chemical.
