Court Backs Limit On PPG Mercury Emissions

State regulators were wrong to give a PPG Industries plant in Marshall County a two-year waiver of state water pollution limits for the toxic metal mercury, a circuit judge has ruled.

Kanawha Circuit Judge Irene Berger concluded last week that the state Department of Environmental Protection should not have granted PPG the pollution waiver in a July 2005 permit.

In a 12-page decision, Berger backed the state Environmental Quality Board, which in July 2006 overturned the DEP action.

The judge noted PPG already had been given previous extensions as part of compliance schedules, including one in its previous permit renewal in 2001.
