Violation Tracker Individual Record
Minnesota-based Cenex Harvest States (CHS), Inc has agreed to settle a series of alleged violations of the Clean Air Act at its facilities in Garretson, SD for $35,200. This includes a $15,500 civil penalty and $19,700 which will be used to conduct several agricultural ammonia safety workshops in multiple states including North and South Dakota. These workshops will include information on how the EPA Risk Management Program requirements apply to agricultural ammonia facilities and how these facilities can meet these requirements. CHS will also remove large tanks of ammonia (a toxic substance) from the Garretson, SD city center.
Note: This penalty is a duplicate of an amount shown in another record (either because it applies to a multi-location settlement or because Violation Tracker contains an agency record and a settlement announcement for the same case).
