Superior Forge & Steel Settles with EPA
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced in January 2014 that Superior Forge & Steel Corp. (SF&S), with Pennsylvania plants in New Castle and Pittsburgh, will pay a $61,673 fine as a result of allegations of violations related to the reporting of toxic chemical requirements. Alleged violations occurred in 2010 and 2011 at the New Castle facility and 2011 at the Pittsburgh facility. The EPA alleged the company violated the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA), a federal law designed to inform the public and emergency responders about hazardous and toxic chemicals in their communities. SF&S did not admit liability for the violations as part of the settlement.
