A St. Joseph company has been fined $150,000 to cover the costs associated with a chemical processing plant clean-up.
HPI Products settled with the EPA on a series of alleged violations of state and federal environmental laws.
HPI is a chemical and pesticide manufacturing company.
Company owner William Garvey says he’ll sell his collection of 12 cars and three boats to pay the damages.
Authorities say HPI Products has a long history of enforcement actions taken by EPA Region 7 and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
