Alcumet, Inc. Agrees to Pay Fine for Air Pollution Violations
Concord, NH - Commissioner Thomas S. Burack of the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services announced today the execution of an Administrative Fine by Consent Agreement with AlCuMet, Inc. of Londonderry. The Agreement resolves alleged violations of the State’s Air Pollution Control Act that occurred at the facility.
Under the terms of the agreement, the company has not admitted liability for the alleged violations but has paid administrative fines totaling $1,500 to the State. The fines resolve allegations that the company failed to renew its air permit in a timely manner.
“The DES permitting program is the foundation for the state’s air program, which was established to control the emissions of air pollutants that might harm the health of the state’s residents,” said DES Commissioner Burack. “That is why it is very important that companies keep their air permits current and comply with their requirements.”
For information on the settlement with AlCuMet, Inc. or on New Hampshire’s air permitting program, contact Pam Monroe, DES Compliance Bureau Administrator, at 271-0882.
