Timber Co. to Pay $130K for Montana Air Violations
Program helps residents buy and install low-pollution pellet and wood burning stoves
HELENA — An Oregon timber company has agreed to pay $130,925 to a wood stove replacement program under a settlement that resolves air pollution violations alleged by Montana regulators.

The Montana Department of Environmental Protection said Thursday the payment by Roseburg Forest Products will go to the Missoula County Seeley Lake Wood Stove Change-Out Program.

That program helps residents buy and install low-pollution pellet and wood burning stoves to reduce air pollution that can harm public health.

State officials say that in 2011 Roseburg submitted revised air pollution monitoring reports that revealed numerous permit violations over the previous five years at its Missoula particle board plant.

Violations included improperly certifying that the company was in compliance with its air quality permit, failing to inspect equipment and not using gasoline vapor control equipment.
