Start Preamble

Notice is hereby given that on July 28, 2010, a proposed Consent Judgment in United States v. Nassau Chromium Plating Co., Inc., No. CV-09-2706, was lodged with the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York.

The proposed Consent Judgment resolves claims of the United States, on behalf of the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”), under the Clean Air Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 7401 et seq. (hereinafter, the “Act”), against Defendant Nassau Chromium Plating Co., Inc. (“Defendant”). The United States alleges that Defendant has owned and operated a facility located at 112-122 Second Street, Mineola, New York, that sprays paint and applies chromium on, among other things, aluminum and steel parts, at which Defendant violated Sections 101-114 of the Act, 42 U.S.C. 7401-7414, and its implementing regulations, 40 CFR part 63, subpart N.

The Consent Judgment requires the Defendant to pay a civil penalty of $4,000.00, which was calculated after conducting an ability-to-pay analysis. The Consent Judgment also provides for injunctive relief that requires Defendant to maintain compliance with the provisions of Sections 101-114 of the Act, 42 U.S.C. 7401-7414, and its implementing regulations, 40 CFR part 63, subpart N, and submit reports to EPA for a three-year period demonstrating such compliance.
