Start Preamble

On July 29, 2014, the Department of Justice lodged with the United States District Court for the Southern District of Iowa a Consent Decree in United States v. Archer Daniels Midland Company, Civil Action: 3:14-cv-00089 SMR-RAW.

This civil action asserts claims for penalties and injunctive relief under the Clean Water Act (“CWA”) 33 U.S.C. 1251 et seq. against Archer Daniels Midland Company (“ADM”) regarding its alleged failure to comply with regulations issued under Section 311(j) of the CWA at five oil storage facilities located in the states of Missouri, Nebraska and Iowa. Additionally, this action asserts claims for violation of industrial stormwater permits issued pursuant to Section 402 of the CWA at three of the same five facilities.
