MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin paper mill has agreed to pay $70,000 to settle alleged violations of its air pollution permit.
Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced his office’s settlement with Appleton Coated LLC of Combined Locks.
The mill produces high-end coated paper for traditional and digital printing and papers for books, catalogs, inserts and other products.
A civil complaint alleged the company failed to maintain records, used a noncompliant coating and operated equipment in violation of its air permit granted by the Department of Natural Resources.
An Outagamie County judge has approved the settlement.
