Notice of Lodging of Proposed Consent Decree Under the Clean Air 
Act

    On January 21, 2020, the Department of Justice lodged a proposed 
consent decree with the United States District Court for the District 
of Colorado in the lawsuit entitled United States of America and the 
State of Colorado v. K.P. Kauffman Company, Inc., Civil Action No. 
1:18-cv-02559-RBJ.
    The lawsuit seeks injunctive relief and civil penalties for 
violations of the Clean Air Act, the Colorado Air Pollution Prevention 
and Control Act (``Colorado Act''), Colorado's federally approved State 
Implementation Plan (``Colorado SIP''), and Colorado Air Quality 
Control Commission Regulation Number 7 (``Regulation No. 7'') at 
condensate tank systems (referred to in the consent decree as ``tank 
systems'') owned and operated by K.P. Kauffman Company, Inc. (``KPK'') 
in the Denver-Julesburg Basin in Colorado, an area designated as non-
attainment for the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for ground-
level ozone. The violations relate to alleged failures to adequately 
design, operate, and maintain vapor control systems at the tank 
systems, resulting in emissions of volatile organic compounds (``VOC'') 
and other pollutants to the atmosphere.
    The proposed consent decree requires KPK to implement injunctive 
relief at 67 condensate tank systems to ensure that its vapor control 
systems adequately capture and control potential VOC emissions. The 
consent decree design, inspection, and preventative maintenance 
measures are intended to result in substantial reductions in VOC 
emissions from KPK tank systems throughout Colorado's Denver-Julesburg 
Basin. In addition to injunctive relief, the proposed Consent Decree 
requires KPK to pay a $1 million civil penalty, split evenly between 
the United States and the State of Colorado, and to undertake projects 
to mitigate environmental harm. Entering into and fully complying with 
the proposed consent decree will release KPK from past civil liability 
at the tank systems and associated vapor control systems for violations 
of the Colorado SIP and Regulation No. 7 relating to VOC emissions from 
condensate storage tanks.

the consent decree. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant
