Missouri Prime Eyes Reopening, Seeks Wastewater Solution

Missouri Prime Beef Packers expressed its aspiration to resume operations at its Pleasant Hope facility pending an agreement with the state regarding wastewater treatment, as stated by the company. The decision to suspend operations on Tuesday was attributed to challenges in managing wastewater and ongoing unfavorable market conditions, affecting its 335 employees. The company affirmed its commitment to collaborate with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources to address wastewater issues, although no specific timeline for reopening was provided. Despite withdrawing its application to discharge treated wastewater into the Pomme de Terre River and facing potential denial from the state due to technology concerns, the company remains determined to overcome these challenges with the support of its stakeholders and the Pleasant Hope community.
