Summit Builders, Colorado Structures, and Shelly Construction LLC

Phoenix, AZ: (Jul-03-07) The Maricopa County Air Quality Department filed environmental damage lawsuits against several companies in Phoenix, alleging that they had air quality violations at their premises. The companies targeted included Summit Builders of Phoenix, Colorado Structures, Shelly Construction LLC, and several other construction companies as well. The largest settlement was for $125,283 from Summit Builders of Phoenix. The company was tagged for 23 violations, including failing to use dust control measures, allowing visible "fugitive" dust and failing to operate a water application on site. The violations were found at 12 Summit locations. Shelly Construction LLC of Tempe paid more than $108,000 for 24 violations. Officials said it lacked dust control operations and improperly recorded entries in its daily Dust Control Plan. Colorado Structures paid a $22,000 fine after the company was found with four violations at two locations. At one location, the Wal-Mart Super Center near Bell Road and 19th Avenue, company employees failed to stabilize open areas of dust-generating operations. In May 2007, more than $435,000 in fines were collected by the department, adding to the $1.5 million already generated in 2007. [PHOENIX BUSINESS JOURNAL: AIR QUALITY]
