EPA sets agreement with Lehigh Cement

United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 5 has reached an agreement with Lehigh Cement Co. on alleged clean-air violations at the company’s Portland cement plant in Mitchell, Indiana.

The agreement, which includes an $84,378 penalty, resolves EPA allegations that Lehigh failed to maintain cement kiln exhaust gas temperatures at levels that ensure compliance with dioxin and furan emissions limits. EPA also alleged that the company failed to comply with limits on opacity or the amount of light obscured by dust emissions.
