FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                
No. 09 - OPA030 

EPA settles with Anderson Development on hazardous waste violations 

CHICAGO (March 10, 2009) - U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5 has signed a consent agreement and final order with Anderson Development Co. for alleged hazardous waste violations at its Adrian, Mich., facility. 

The specialty chemical manufacturer will pay a $153,100 penalty and complete two environmental projects that will benefit Adrian and Lenawee County, Mich.  Anderson will purchase emergency equipment for the Adrian Fire Department and sponsor two household hazardous waste collections in the area. 

Based on a 2007 inspection, EPA found multiple violations of the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) at the Anderson facility.  Specifically, EPA found that the company failed to obtain a hazardous waste storage permit, get assessments/certifications, maintain records and meet inspection requirements for its tank systems.  It also failed to label tanks and containers, and maintain proper aisle space and container requirements.  The company has since modified its tank system to meet federal requirements. 

EPA regulates hazardous waste from its production to final disposal under RCRA.
