EPA SETTLES WITH BROWN STOVE WORKS, INC., CLEVELAND, TENN., FOR VIOLATIONS OF THE EMERGENCY PLANNING AND COMMUNITY RIGHT-TO-KNOW ACT

 ATLANTA, Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today announced the settlement of an administrative enforcement action against Brown Stove Works, Inc., Cleveland, Tenn., for alleged violations of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act (EPCRA -- also known as Title III).
 According to the complaint, the company failed to submit Emergency and Hazardous Chemical Inventory Forms for silicon dioxide, fuel oil, and propane for calendar years 1987-1990 to the State Emergency Response Commission, the Local Emergency Planning Committee, and the fire department with jurisdiction over the facility.
 The Consent Agreement and Consent Order requires the company to pay a $12,000 civil penalty to the United States Treasury. Also, the company will undertake and complete a Supplemental Environmental Project (SEP). According to the SEP, the company will provide the Bradley County Local Emergency Planning Committee with various emergency response equipment, including computer hardware, a hazardous materials response truck, and self-contained breathing gear. The cost of the SEP is estimated at $48,000.
 EPCRA requires certain businesses to submit reports each year on the amounts, location and potential effects of certain chemicals stored at their facilities. These reports provide communities with information to prepare for and respond to emergencies involving hazardous compounds.
