Environmental lawyer Sanders says Rohm and Haas Chemicals settled multiple violations at its Louisville facility arising from EPA’s multi-media inspection in 2005.

Did you know that on June 12, 2008, Judge Thomas B. Russell of the Western District of Kentucky entered the Consent Decree in United States v. Rohm and Haas Chemicals, LLC.  The Consent Decree resolves alleged violations of the Clean Air Act, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act, and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, at the Company’s Louisville facility. 

Rohm and Haas’ multiple violations of environmental law stemmed from an EPA and National Enforcement Investigations Center inspection at the facility in 2005.  As part of the Consent Decree, the company will pay a civil penalty of $35,975 and perform two supplemental environmental projects (SEPs) costing at least $133,671.  One project is a pollution reduction project and the other is an emergency planning and preparedness SEP.
