In re Howmet Corp.

09/30/2005
Case Number: 
RCRA Nos. 02-2004-7102, 06-2003-0912
ELR Citation:35 ELR 47860

An administrative law judge issued an initial decision that the respondent violated the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act and upheld the penalty agreed by the parties, pending further appeal. The complaints, filed by two U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regions, concerned the respondent's shipments of regulated waste products to an unauthorized facility without proper transport or documentation and without notifying the recipient of the status of the waste. The parties agreed to the record of the case but the respondent disputes its liability.
