KEOKUK, Iowa (AP) A company that runs a grain processing plant in southeastern Iowa will pay a $4.1 million penalty to settle allegations that it repeatedly dumped industrial waste into the Mississippi River in violation of federal law.

The U.S. Department of Justice announced Tuesday that Roquette America, Inc., will also be required to take other steps that could cost more than $17 million to upgrade its sewer and wastewater treatment plant to prevent future discharges from its Keokuk plant.

The company does not acknowledge wrongdoing in the settlement, which was filed in U.S. District Court.

The 42-page consent decree settles a complaint alleging the company repeatedly violated the Clean Water Act and a permit limiting how much pollution it could release. It will become final after a public comment period.
