CHICAGO (Feb. 25, 2013 ) — EPA has reached agreement with Geneva Energy, LLC on the terms of a consent decree to resolve allegations that the company violated the Clean Air Act at a tire-burning electric generating plant in Ford Heights, Ill. Geneva has agreed to close the facility, which operated intermittently from 2006 until the fall of 2011.

A federal lawsuit was filed at the same time as the settlement and alleges violations included in an August 2010 EPA “notice and finding of violation” issued to the facility. The NOV/FOV alleged violations of the facility’s construction permit, including monitoring and reporting requirements and emission limits established for carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, sulfur dioxide, ammonia, particulate matter, and opacity.
