EPA CITES HOLNAM FOR AIR POLLUTION

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 5 has recently cited
Holnam Inc., for alleged violations of federally 
enforceable State clean-air regulations at the company's cement plant,
15215 Day Rd., Dundee, MI.

EPA said emissions of particulates (dust, ash, smoke) from the plant's
clinker coolers exceeded State limits.  The 
violations were discovered during company stack tests.

This is a preliminary finding of violations.  To resolve them, EPA may issue
a compliance order, assess an administrative 
penalty, or bring suit against the company.  Holnam has 30 days from
receipt of the finding to request a meeting with EPA to 
discuss the allegations and how to resolve them.

"EPA is committed to enforcing clean-air regulations to protect public
health and the environment," said Margaret Guerriero, 
acting director of the regional Air and Radiation Division.  "We will take all
necessary steps to ensure that companies 
comply with the Clean Air Act."

Inhaling high concentrations of particulates can affect children, the
elderly, and people with heart and lung diseases the 
most.
