Air Pollution Control District Fines Rubbertown Company

The Air Pollution Control District and Momentive Specialty Chemicals have reached an agreementon alleged violations at the company's Rubbertown plant. The proposed settlement fines Momentive $13,500 for failing to report excess emissions. There will be a public hearing on the fine next Wednesday at 10am, and the Air Pollution Control Board will vote on the settlement.APCD spokesman Tom Nord says the notice of violation isn't related to any odor complaints. As I reported last month, residents of Riverside Gardens (which is right next to the Momentive property line)have been complaining about a sweet cough drop odor in the air. That complaint is still under investigation.
