Poultry producer Allen Harim will pay a $300,000 administrative penalty to the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) for violations at its Harbeson processing plant and its Dagsboro hatchery.

In June 2016, groundwater monitoring data in Dagsboro showed nitrogen levels almost three times the DNREC permit limit.
