In accordance with the Clean Air Act, as amended (CAA or the Act), notice is given of a proposed settlement agreement in the administrative enforcement action brought by the State of New Jersey, Department of Environmental Protection, Division of Air Enforcement (New Jersey), against the Edison facility owned and operated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 2. In November 2019, New Jersey conducted an inspection of EPA's Edison facility and found several state law violations related to its boilers and emergency generators. EPA worked with New Jersey to bring the boilers and generators back into full compliance by the end of 2020. A draft administrative settlement agreement between EPA and New Jersey that would fully resolve the matter through EPA paying a $8,600 penalty is here proposed and is ready for public notice and comment.
