The city of Eugene sent Pacific Recycling a warning for Clean Water Act violations

Pollution Update 2-12-15

The city of Eugene recently sent Pacific Recycling (which appears in this space on a regular basis) a warning letter for Clean Water Act violations at its facility on Cross Street. The city’s letter warns Pacific Recycling for shoddy employee environmental training practices; failure to take stormwater samples that are representative of discharges; failure to employ erosion and sediment controls; and failure to provide secondary containment for a barrel of unknown material. The city also recently sent a warning letter to Emerald Steel Fabricators for failing to revise its pollution control plan to address elevated zinc levels in discharges from its Enid Road facility.
