AG Kaul Announces Settlement with County Materials Corp. to Resolve Wisconsin Air Law Violations at Janesville Facility
February 5, 2021
MADISON, Wis. – Attorney General Josh Kaul today announced a settlement with County Materials Corp. requiring County Materials Corp. to pay $171,750 to resolve violations of Wisconsin’s air laws at its facility in Janesville, Wis. The settlement was approved by the Rock County Circuit Court on January 29, 2021.
“Companies must do their part to protect communities from air pollution, not flout the rules that protect clean air,” said Attorney General Kaul.
The agreement requires County Materials Corp. to pay $171,750, including $81,722.62 in past-due fees to DNR and $90,027.38 in forfeitures, surcharges, and court costs. The agreement also requires County Materials to dismiss the administrative and judicial review actions that it filed challenging the 2018 air permits and DNR’s invoice for those permits.
The Rock County Circuit Court entered judgment against County Materials Corp. today pursuant to the terms of the settlement agreed to by the parties.
Because this compromise was reached prior to the commencement of a civil action, requirements of 2017 Wisconsin Act 369 do not apply.
