The Department of Environmental Protection has fined Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. $61,850 for numerous air quality violations during the past two years at its asphalt plant and quarry in Spring Township, Centre County.

“DEP expects to see much better compliance in the future by Hawbaker with state air quality laws and regulations,” said DEP Northcentral Regional Director Robert Yowell. “The company knows it can do a better job in this area.”
 
DEP’s air quality program inspectors documented numerous violations, including: two portable stone crushers that were built and operated for three months in the summer of 2006 without authorization; fugitive dust emissions on the main haul road; failing to notify DEP that construction was complete on an air contamination sources under plan approval; failing to notify DEP of air pollution control equipment malfunctions that resulted in visible emissions; and operating an air pollution control device that was not working properly and needed repairs.
 
Hawbaker has corrected all of the violations listed in the civil penalty agreement, and has paid the fine.
