EPA Charges Anchor Glass Container With Clean Air Violations

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5 has cited Anchor Glass Container Corp. for alleged clean-air violations at the company's container glass manufacturing plant at 200 W.

Belleview Dr., Lawrenceburg, Ind. EPA proposed a $96,901 penalty.

EPA alleges 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. EPA also alleges 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.

Anchor Glass has 30 days from receipt of the complaint to file an answer and request a hearing. The company may request an informal conference with EPA at any time to discuss resolving the allegations.

Inhaling high concentrations of particulates can affect children, the elderly and people with heart and lung diseases the most.
