A consent judgment regarding the incinerator’s odor has been finalized by the Michigan Department of the Attorney General. Today a press statement was released by the Attorney General announcing the judgment between the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and Michigan Waste Energy & Detroit Renewable Power waste incinerator.
Terms of the settlement include:
- The companies will re-engineer the facility within two years with a new air ducting system, sending foul-smelling air into the incineration process for destruction. The companies will be charged monetary penalties of up to $5,000 for each day the companies do not implement the measures to control the nuisance odors and additional penalties if they fail to comply with this schedule – fines of up to $5,000 per day for future violations of Michigan Air Pollution Control law.
- The companies will pay a $350,000 fine for past odor violations which will go into the State General Fund.
