McGregor Company’s Nezperce facility nets $24,720 penalty for pesticide violations

NEZPERCE — The McGregor Company, one of the largest independent fertilizer, agri-chemical, and equipment dealers in the Pacific Northwest, has settled with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency concerning alleged violations of the federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act at its Nezperce pesticide repackaging and refilling facility. The settlement included a $24,720 penalty.

 An EPA-credentialed inspector visited the Nezperce facility in March 2013. EPA’s investigation found the facility lacked required protections for its pesticide repackaging equipment and did not have an adequate pesticide containment pad. After being notified of these findings by the EPA, the McGregor Company immediately corrected the deficiencies.
