Superior Asphalt

Black River Falls, WI: (Apr -17-07) The Wisconsin Department of Justice booked an environmental enforcement case on Jackson County Superior Asphalt, accusing it of having failed to properly manage petroleum products at its plant and investigate and clean up spills, as required by state law. The suit further alleged that Superior Asphalt failed to conduct a required stack test of the plant's air pollution emissions in 2003, and when it conducted the test in 2005, it failed to provide the results and other mandatory reports to the Department of Natural Resources, as required by its permit. As part of the settlement agreement, Superior Asphalt will clean up a petroleum spill and pay $7,500 in penalties as well as take the actions necessary to investigate and remediate the petroleum contamination at its property.
