GREENVILLE, N.H. (AP) — A food manufacturer has agreed to pay $949,000 to the state of New Hampshire as part of a settlement with the attorney general's office over water pollution and waste disposal allegations.
Under the settlement, the vinegar, mustard and apple juice plant in Greenville run by Pilgrim Foods will hire a team of engineers to assess the plant and its operations. Periodic reports would be made available to state officials and to the Environmental Protection Agency.
Pilgrim also will set up a continuous water quality monitoring program.
The money would go to the state's Hazardous Waste Cleanup Fund, and other funds. Pilgrim may be eligible for a credit.
Both sides agree that nothing in the settlement should be construed as an admission or denial of liability or fact by Pilgrim.
