Start Preamble

On June 26, 2017, a proposed Consent Decree was lodged with the United States District Court for the District of Colorado in the lawsuit entitled United States and State of Colorado v. Rocky Mountain Company, LLC, Civil Action No. 1:17-cv-01554.

The United States filed this lawsuit against Rocky Mountain Bottle Company, LLC (“RMBC”) alleging violations of the Non-attainment New Source Review provisions of the Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7501-7515, among other provisions.

The proposed Consent Decree requires RMBC to pay a civil penalty of $475,000 and undertake significant injunctive relief.
