According to the complaint, filed at the request of the Department of Natural Resources, Aurora failed to obtain air pollutant source construction and/or operation permits for a number of its facilities, and violated emission limits and other air pollution control requirements at some of the facilities, including:
"We will continue to work with the DNR to make sure that Wisconsin's environmental laws are followed," said Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen.
