Trident Pays Fines for Ammonia Violations PDF Print E-mail

            Trident Seafoods will pay more than 112-thousand dollars for not reporting large quantities of hazardous chemicals to the EPA. The company violated the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act by not telling local emergency response teams that they had large quantities of ammonia, a hazardous chemical, at processing plants in Akutan, Kodiak, Petersburg, and Seattle. EPA public affairs specialist Tony Brown says this endangered the surrounding communities.

            Exposure to large quantities of ammonia can cause respiratory problems and eye irritations and it is highly explosive. The company reportedly stored 25 thousand pounds in Kodiak, 80 thousand in Akutan, 1,400 pounds in Petersburg, and 19,500 in Seattle.

            Trident will pay a 61 thousand dollar penalty to the federal government and will fund supplemental environmental project. The company will spend 23 thousand dollars on emergency response equipment for the Kodiak fire department and 28 thousand dollars on equipment for the Akutan volunteer fire department.

            EPA assistant regional council Stephanie Mairs says this is a common violation and though Trident is paying a significant penalty, it is not unusually large. Mairs says the company does not have any previous violations nor do they admit guilt in this instance.

            Trident did not respond to phone calls on Monday.

             The Kodiak Bears were one-two at the track and field meet in Juneau over the weekend. The boys dominated the field of nine schools with 286 points to second-place Juneau's 182. The Kodiak girls were neck-and-neck with Juneau until the end, though the Crimson Bears won with 205 points to Kodiak's 196.

            The boys were led by junior Karsten Schick and senior Trevor Dunbar, both of whom had four first-place finishes, either individually or with teammates.

            Schick leapt 6-feet in the high jump, won the 110-meter hurdles, the 400-meter race, and was on the winning 4x400 relay team with Dunbar, Sam Salus and Christian Zarate. Dunbar was also first in the 800, 1600 and 3200 meter races. He ran 4-minutes 10-point-78-seconds in the 1600, which is about 30-feet short of a mile.

            The boys also took first in the 4x200 meter relay.

            Behind Kodiak and Juneau-Douglas were Haines, Sitka, Petersburg, Ketchikan, Gustavus, Yakutat and Mount Edgecumbe.

            On the girls' side, senior Linzee Burcham won the 400-meter race and senior Keeley Wall won the triple jump with a distance of 31-feet, 5-point-5 inches. The Lady Bears dominated the relays, winning the 4x200, 4x400, and 4x800 events, and were second in the 4x100.

             Following the Juneau and Kodiak girls were Sitka, Haines, Ketchikan, Petersburg and Mount Edgcumbe.

            The next challenge for the Bears will be hosting Anchorage Christian School and Bartlett.
