EPA cites Meridian Automotive in Ohio

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 5 has cited Meridian Automotive Systems for alleged clean-air violations at the company’s composite plastic manufacturing plant, 1020 E. Main St., Jackson, Ohio.

EPA alleges that Meridian violated its state permits and state regulations by emitting excessive amounts of styrene, a hazardous air pollutant and a smog-producing volatile organic compound, from January 2001 through May 2006.

These are preliminary findings of violations. To resolve them, EPA may issue a compliance order, assess an administrative penalty or bring suit against the company. Meridian has 30 days from receipt of the notice to meet with EPA to discuss resolving the allegations.
