Residents sue corn plant

April 26, 2012 | 0 comments

A lawsuit filed by a group of Muscatine residents says a plant that produces corn-based products emits so much pollution that it jeopardizes their health and hurts their property values.

The lawsuit filed in district court is seeking class-action status on behalf of roughly 17,000 residents who live within three miles of the Grain Processing Corp. plant.

The lawsuit alleges the plant has been designated a "high priority violator" of the Clean Air Act by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and helped make Muscatine schools some of the most polluted in the nation.

The plant makes products such as alcohol, corn starches and corn oil for a variety of applications and is one of the city's largest employers.

The company did not immediately return a phone message.
