Poultry Producer Fined for Water Pollution

Poultry producer Allen Harim Foods has been slapped with a $241,000 by Delaware for years of wastewater violations at a chicken processing plant.

Delaware’s Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control released the order after the company was found guilty for more than 90 violations at its Harbeson plant. Allen Harim Foods must also pay the department nearly $8,000 to cover its investigations.

The company is appealing the fine to the state Environmental Appeals Board.

State environmental regulators said in 2016 that millions of gallons of polluted waste were dumped into the Delaware Bay tributary of Beaverdam Creek between 2012 and 2016.
