Recycler hit with Clean Water Act lawsuit

Sep 19th, 2013 | By | Category: Business

Norwich, Conn.-based Shetucket Iron & Metal Co. Inc. is being sued in U.S. District Court in Connecticut by Soundkeeper Inc., Connecticut Fund for the Environment Inc. and Conservation Law Foundation Inc. The environmental groups contend that stormwater runoff from 20-foot high piles of scrap at Shetucket’s facility is contaminating local waterways, and that contaminants carried on the tires of trucks exiting the scrapyard are being spread to neighboring areas.

Metals processing activities, including shearing, crushing, and compacting, are also releasing contaminants, according to the lawsuit.
