Maricopa County Air Quality Violations

Honeywell International settled alleged air quality violations at five of its facilities in and around Maricopa County, Ariz. The settlement covers a two-year period from March 1, 2006, to April 7, 2008. Under the terms of the deal with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office and the Maricopa County Air Quality Department, Honeywell agreed to a total penalty amount of $3,025,480. Honeywell will pay 25 percent of the penalty; the rest will be offset through the cost of completing supplemental environmental improvement projects within the county. According to the County Attorney, there were over 1,500 “total violation days” (number of violations times number of days each violation occurred), and most occurred near Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Many of the violations were self-reported by the company.
