Violation Tracker Individual Record
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has reached a settlement with Silgan Containers that will resolve alleged Clean Air Act (CAA) violations of the Prevention of Significant Deterioration/New Source Review (PSD/NSR) programs at 18 Silgan can manufacturing facilities across the United States. In October 1999, Silgan commenced a national air audit ("NAA") of the company's compliance with the CAA under an audit agreement with EPA and conducted a review of each facility (originally, a total of 28) on a Region-by-Region basis. Silgan disclosed noncompliance with PSD/NSR and other CAA requirements and voluntarily corrected noncompliance. Silgan disclosed the potential violations to Regions 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, and 10.
