EPA reaches agreement with Anchor Glass
Chicago, IL— U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency Region 5 has reached an agreement with Anchor
Glass Container Corp. on alleged clean-air violations at the company’s
container glass manufacturing plant at 200 W. Belleview Dr., Lawrenceburg,
The agreement, which includes
a $96,901 penalty, resolves EPA allegations that Anchor Glass
failed to use its baghouses to control emissions of particulate
matter (dust, smoke, ash) at the plant as required by the company’s
state operating permit.
Also resolved are allegations
that the company failed to comply with a number of other requirements
in its state operating permit.
The alleged violations were discovered
during a November 2004 inspection by EPA and the Indiana Department
of Environmental Management.
