Air Permit Violations at MSW Incinerator
Roux Associates was hired to provide air quality expert witness services regarding the operation of MSW Incinerator facilities. The case involved numerous alleged air permit and Clean Air Act violations including failing to operate scrubbers associated with ash handling; and, the routine presence of door and roof openings in ash and pug mill buildings that allowed excessive fugitive dust emissions to impact ambient air. Finally, it was alleged that the facility failed its air permit obligations to:
- Correct problems causing unnecessary releases; and,
- Report the occurrence of such problems in semi- annual and annual compliance reports and certifications.
