FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CHICAGO ( March 27, 2006) - U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5 has cited Perma-Fix of Dayton Inc. for alleged clean-air violations at the company's wastewater and used oil processing plant at 300 S. West End Ave., Dayton, Ohio.
EPA alleges that Perma-Fix modified its used oil operations and constructed wastewater treatment equipment without applying for the necessary air pollution control permits.
"EPA's mission is to protect public health and the environment," said Regional Administrator Thomas V. Skinner. "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. Perma-Fix has 30 days from receipt of the notice to meet with EPA to discuss resolving the allegations.
