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

Belleview Dr., Lawrenceburg, Ind.
The agreement, which includes a $96,901 penalty, resolves EPA allegations 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.

Also resolved are allegations 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.

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