EPA SETTLES WITH SOUTHERN FOUNDRY SUPPLY, INC., CHATTANOOGA, TENN., FOR EPCRA VIOLATIONS

 ATLANTA, June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today announced the settlement of an administrative enforcement action against Southern Foundry Supply, 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 submit a timely Material Safety Data Sheet and failed to submit timely, complete and correct Emergency and Hazardous Chemical Inventory Forms for ammonium copper sulfate solution, a hazardous chemical, for calendar years 1990 and 1991 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 $2,376 civil penalty to the United States Treasury. Also, the company will undertake and complete a Supplemental Environmental Project (SEP). The SEP will include a project to assess the feasibility of a process to recover pure nickel from nickel containing waste residues. The cost of the feasibility study is estimated at $34,000. After evaluation, the SEP will be considered acceptable only if the company commits to the construction and operation of a full scale nickel recycling operation.
 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 provided communities with information to prepare for and respond to emergencies involving hazardous compounds.
