Steel producer Allegheny Ludlum will pay a $1.6 million civil penalty for alleged Clean Air Act violations at its Natrona plant in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, under the terms of a proposed Consent Decree lodged in federal court (United States v. Allegheny Ludlum Corp., W.D. Pa., No. 10-cv-673-NBF, 5/17/10). The alleged Clean Air Act violations to be resolved relate to excessive opacity (visible emissions) coming from the Natrona facility’s basic oxygen furnace shop. The proposed Consent Decree is subject to a 30-day public comment period and court approval. The EPA and the Allegheny County Health Department will each receive half of the penalty payment.
