HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A former executive of a Branford company has pleaded guilty to violating the federal Clean Water Act.
Fifty-five-year-old Robert Meyer pleaded guilty Tuesday to
failing to report toxic discharges into the Branford River from the
now-defunct Atlantic Wire Co.
Officials say Atlantic Wire's repeated discharges of toxic
wastewater between 2005 and early 2008 killed hundreds of crabs.
Earlier this year, Atlantic Wire agreed to pay $1.5 million, and
to spend nearly $900,000 to clean up its site.
Meyer is to be sentenced in October.
