KODIAK (AP) A company will pay a $20,000 penalty to a federal agency for submitting incorrect wastewater discharge reports.
International Seafoods of Alaska, Inc., accepted responsibility for the error, said Ted Kishimoto, general manager of International Seafoods in Kodiak. The proposed penalty from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency was $130,000.
International Seafoods submitted corrected reports showing the facility exceeded its permissible monthly average for oil and grease emissions only once, in February 2002.
