Start Preamble

In accordance with Departmental policy, 28 C.F.R. § 50.7, notice is hereby given that a proposed consent decree in the case of United States v. Las Vegas Paving Corp., Civil Action No. CVS-00-0049-DWH-LRL (D. Nevada), was lodged with the United States District Court for the District of Nevada on January 10, 2000.

The proposed consent decree resolves claims that the United States asserted against Las Vegas Paving Corp. (LVPC) in a civil complaint filed concurrently with the lodging of the consent decree. The complaint alleges that LVPC installed and operated five internal combustion engines at its Lone Mountain facility in Clark County, Nevada, in violation of permitting requirements of the Nevada State Implementation Plan for Clark County, and that LVPC installed and operated affected facilities at its Apex facility in Clark County, Nevada, and failed to comply with notification and performance test requirements of the New Source Performance Standards of 40 C.F.R. Part 60 Subparts A, I, and OOO.

The proposed consent decree requires defendant to pay a civil penalty of $82,500. In addition, defendant is required to apply timing retardation to one engine and conduct a source test on that engine, apply for permits for two engines, and cease the operation of three engines unless it applies for permits.
