The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) issued penalties against four employers in Muskogee County, Oklahoma, in December 2012. According to the Muskogee Phoenix, these companies were cited for violations of the Clean Air Act.
State officials have fined various businesses over the past three years due to numerous act violations. Monetary penalties were assessed against two Oklahoma employers last month, and all four facilities will search for ways to resolve air quality concerns.
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency administrators said that 36 Muskogee County employers are subject to Clean Air Act permit requirements. Additionally, Oklahoma leaders will enforce penalties on businesses that disregard act regulations, regardless of whether these companies operate in Muskogee County.
"DEQ responds to environmental violations throughout Oklahoma," DEQ representative Erin Hatfield told the news source. "It is simply a coincidence that four Muskogee area companies have come under enforcement action in the past three years."
