US EPA finds poor pesticide containment at two sites

The US EPA has reached settlements with two pesticide repackaging firms over inadequate containment structures at their facilities. The McGregor Company agreed to pay a $24,720 penalty following an inspection of its facilities in Nezperce, Idaho in March 2013. The inspection found that repackaging equipment did not have required protections and did not have an adequate pesticide containment pad, the EPA notes. Wilco-Winfield reached a $15,360 settlement following an inspection of its site in Mt Angel, Oregon in February 2013. The Agency determined that the facility lacked an adequate pesticide containment pad.
