POSTVILLE, Iowa (AP) - The federal Environmental Protection Agency has reached a settlement that requires a kosher meat processing plant in northeastern Iowa to pay a $43,000 penalty.

The EPA says Agri Star Meat & Poultry, of Postville, Iowa, agreed to the settlement to resolve industrial stormwater violations of the federal Clean Water Act discovered last year. Under the settlement, Agri Star must also comply with its industrial stormwater permit.

The EPA says Agri Star failed to develop and update an adequate stormwater pollution prevention plan, perform plant inspections, conduct annual evaluations and other monitoring, among other things.
