The attorney general’s sued a company over something in the air. The Indiana firm, C-D-I, paints recreational vehicles. But the lawsuit by the Environmental Law Division of the Attorney General’s office charges that C-D-I didn’t get the proper permits before constructing equipment to do that painting in Forest City and Charles City, where it just so happens a lot of R-Vs get manufactured.
The A.G. says the company needed air-quality construction permits, and also charges that its Forest City facility let too much paint, or volatile organic compounds, out into the air. C-D-I was ordered this week to pay a civil penalty of 141-thousand dollars and it now has the proper permits and permission from the D-N-R to let some V-O-C’s escape.
