US Biodiesel Company Commits Environmental Fraud

Federal officials in California fined a San Joaquin biodiesel manufacturing company $401,000 for violating Clean Water Act violations after the firm admitted to tampering with monitoring equipment and dumping wastewater into a city sewer system in Stockton.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of California announced July 11 the fines against American Biodiesel Inc., saying employees tampered with flow meters and acidity recordings to underreport pollutants that would have violated city regulations.
