EPA SETTLES WITH MOR-FLO INDUSTRIES FOR VIOLATIONS OF THE EMERGENCY PLANNING AND COMMUNITY RIGHT-TO-KNOW ACT

 ATLANTA, April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today announced the settlement of an administrative enforcement action against Mor-Flo, Inc., Chattanooga, Tenn., for alleged violations of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act (EPCRA).
 According to the Administrative Complaint, the company failed to file a timely emergency and hazardous chemical inventory form for toluene diisocyanate for calendar years 1988, 1989, 1990 and 1991 with the State Emergency Response Commission (SERC), the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) and the local 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 and make a settlement payment of $48,000 to the Hamilton County LEPC.
 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.
