EPA Cites Anchor Glass for 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 glass container manufacturing plant at 200 W.

Belleview Dr., Lawrenceburg, Ind.

EPA alleges that Anchor failed to comply with a number of requirements in its state operating permit. EPA discovered the alleged violations during a plant inspection last November.

"EPA's mission is to protect public health and the environment," said Acting Regional Administrator Bharat Mathur. "We will take whatever steps are needed to ensure compliance with the Clean Air Act."

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. The company has 30 days from receipt of the notice to meet with EPA to discuss resolving the allegations.
