According to EPA, Mayhew discharged wastewater to the Shelburne Falls sewer system containing more zinc and with a higher acidity than allowed by federal standards. EPA also alleged that Mayhew failed to meet its reporting requirements for discharges to a public sewer system, failed to obtain a permit for stormwater discharges to the Deerfield River, and failed to develop a plan intended to prevent spilled oil from harming nearby waterways. 

Mayhew will pay $157,500 for the pretreatment violations and $70,000 for violating stormwater and oil spill (SPCC) regulations.
