The EPA has reached a settlement of over $7.5 million with James Pflueger over Clean Water Act violations associated with construction activities on Pflueger's property in Hawaii.

This is the largest storm water settlement in the United States for violations at a single site by a single landowner.

Pflueger agreed to pay $2 million in penalties, plus spend approximately $5.3 million in environmental improvement projects, which will include restoring streams in the areas damaged by the construction activity. Pflueger will also spend $200,000 to replace residential cesspools with improved wastewater systems in a nearby coastal community.
