Start Preamble

Notice is hereby given that, on July 24, 2000, a Consent Decree in United States v. Lloyd Manufacturing Corporation, Civil Action No. CA-00-363-ML, was lodged in the United States District Court for the District of Rhode Island.

In this action the United States sought injunctive relief and civil penalties under section 113(b) of the Clean Air Act (“CAA”), 42 U.S.C. 74139(b) against Lloyd Manufacturing Corporation (“Lloyd”). The alleged violations include failure to obtain a permit required by the CAA, failure to install pollution control devices required by the CAA, and the failure to use low emissions coatings as required by the CAA at the fabric coating facility owned and operated by Lloyd in Warren, Rhode Island. The Consent Decree resolves all of these claims. The Consent Decree requires Lloyd to comply with the Clean Air Act, to pay a civil penalty to the United States of $240,000, and to purchase approximately 247 tons of air emission reduction credits costing a total of between $148,200 and $172,900 as restitution for its past excess emissions.
