US EPA settles Clean Air Act violations by solid waste incinerator for too much mercury and hydrogen chloride.

U.S. EPA settled Clean Air Act violations with Perham Resource Recovery Facility, a municipal waste combustor in Perham, Minn.  The settlement includes a $15,950 penalty and an $110,760 environmental project.  The facility’s environmental project consists of two improvements to its air pollution control system that will reduce Perham’s emissions of hydrogen chloride and mercury.

The settlement resolves U.S. EPA allegations that Perham exceeded federal Clean Air Act emission standards for hydrogen chloride and mercury.  EPA discovered the violations through performance test reports submitted by the facility.
