The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Justice have fined Sims Metal Management $189,500 for polluting San Francisco Bay with scrap metal debris in violation of the federal Clean Water Act. Since at least the early 1990s, Sims operated a conveyor belt without adequate pollution controls to prevent materials from falling off the conveyor and into the Bay.
