On October 1, 2012, the Department of Justice lodged a proposed Consent Decree with the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey in the lawsuit entitled United States and State of New Jersey v. Durand Glass Manufacturing Company, Inc., Civil Action No. 1:12-cv-06115-RBK-JS.

The action involves alleged violations of the Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7401, et seq., and N.J.A.C. 7:27-22.1, et seq., at Durand Glass Manufacturing Company, Inc.'s facility located in Millville, New Jersey, in regard to Durand's failure to comply with prevention of significant deterioration, new source review, and permit requirements. The action seeks civil penalties and injunctive relief. Pursuant to the Decree, Durand will pay a civil penalty of $300,000 (based on Durand's inability to pay a larger penalty), and agreed to install advanced emission control devices on the three glass furnaces at the facility.
