WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The Sierra Club says Kansas environmental regulators are not enforcing an odor control provision in a permit for Seaboard Food Inc.'s hog feeding operation in Greeley County.

At issue is the way the company is calculating the levels of water in lagoons used to treat manure for odor control.

The environmental group on Tuesday criticized the Kansas Department of Health and Environment for finding that Seaboard met requirements based on head counts and weights.

The Sierra Club contends KDHE is not enforcing the permit language by accepting the company's calculations. The complaint filed in August is the third one the group has filed.

The health department and Seaboard did not immediately respond to emails seeking comment.

Seaboard Food's Ladder Creek facility has a capacity for 132,000 mature hogs.
