Firm Charged with Chemical Inventory Reporting Violations Pays $93,392

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5 announced it has settled with Double Eagle Steel Coating Co. on hazardous chemical and toxic release inventory reporting violations at its Dearborn, Mich., facility.

Federal law requires local and state authorities to be notified of hazardous chemical storage. In the event of a fire or emergency, responders need to know what they are dealing with so they can take steps to protect people living or working in the area. According to EPA, Double Eagle paid a civil penalty of $93,392 to resolve the agency's complaint. The facility failed to report many hazardous chemicals stored at the site including sulfuric acid, lead, zinc, and hydrochloric acid, EPA said.

The company has since submitted its required emergency and hazardous chemical inventory forms to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Michigan Citizen-Community Emergency Response Coordinating Council, Wayne County Local Emergency Planning Committee, and Dearborn Fire Department.
