DCI Agrees to Pay Fines for Air Pollution Violations
Concord, NH – Commissioner Thomas S. Burack of the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (DES) announced today the execution of an Administrative Fine by Consent Agreement with DCI, Inc., of Lisbon. The Agreement resolves alleged violations of the State’s Air Toxics Control Act that occurred at the facility.
Under the terms of the agreement with DCI, the company has not admitted liability for the alleged violations but will pay administrative fines totaling $3,900 to the State. DES has agreed to suspend $500 of the fine, provided that DCI does not violate its permit or the Act for the next two years. The fines resolve allegations that the company violated numerous recordkeeping and reporting requirements as set forth in its permit and DES administrative rules.
“Compliance with recordkeeping and reporting requirements is necessary for DES to be able to determine a facility’s compliance with air pollutant limits that protect the health of the state’s residents,” said Commissioner Burack.
For information on the settlement, or on New Hampshire’s air permitting program, contact Pam Monroe, DES Compliance Bureau Administrator, at 271-0882.
