Raley’s Supermarket Settles Civil Environmental Case

Special Report
District Attorney’s Office
Posted: 9/3/2014

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - District Attorney Jan Scully joins 25 other California district attorneys in announcing that West Sacramento-based Raley’s supermarket was ordered to pay $1,599,000 in civil penalties, costs and supplemental environmental projects, as part of the settlement of a civil enforcement prosecution, which includes a final judgment and permanent injunction. Raley’s cooperated with the prosecution team throughout the investigation into their unlawful practices.

The judgment is the culmination of a civil enforcement lawsuit filed in San Joaquin County to stop the supermarket chain from unlawfully transporting and disposing of retail hazardous waste. The lawsuit claimed that more than 130 Raley’s supermarket stores improperly stored, handled, and disposed of hazardous waste and pharmaceutical waste products into company trash bins. Instead of being sent to authorized disposal sites, hazardous wastes and contaminated materials were being unlawfully transported to area landfills. Additionally, the lawsuit alleges that Raley’s failed to take sufficient steps to preserve the confidentiality of their pharmacy customers’ information.

WEST SACRAMENTO, CA (MPG) - At the last City Council meeting, the City of West Sacramento worked to update the City’s water conservation efforts to meet a 20% reduction in water usage. Since the governor issued a drought declaration earlier this year, the City has promoted water conservation and responded to citizen complaints regarding water waste in the community. City staff has been tracking the progress in reaching their goal. From February to June, the average reduction was almost 19%.

To encourage conservation, the City will send a status report to its top 20 water customers. These are commercial, multifamily, and government agencies. This report will list the customers who have met or exceeded the 20% goal. They will increase social media postings which promote water conservation. They will also increase messages on the City webpage and City iLights, as well as through other community email distribution lists such as the BBCAN newsletter.
