LEHIGH CITED FOR DUST
DATELINE: UNION BRIDGE
UNIONBRIDGE -- The Maryland Department of the Environment has cited Lehigh Portland Cement Co. for visible emissions on Feb. 10.
An inspector at the plant on a routine visit noticed emissions from the raw mill stack for at least 20 minutes between 2 and 3 p.m., department spokesman John Goheen said.
MDE has not proposed a penalty for the violation, he said. Inspectors want to find out if the violation is the start of a trend, he said. There have been no violations since, he said.
Any visible emission is a violation, Goheen said.
Plant manager David H. Roush said the mill had been down for repairs that day.In the process of starting it up again and warming up the dust collector, some dust escaped, he said.
Lehigh's past emissions violations were from stacks on the kilns. Last month, the company paid a $15,000 fine for violations in February and March of 1991.
