A glass plant in Streator has been fined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Owens-Brockway Glass Container is paying a 76 thousand dollar penalty for allegedly allowing excessive amounts of ash, dust and smoke from its glass melting furnace.  The EPA says the plant was violating the Clean Air Act.

As part of their penalty and settlement, Owens-Brockway is agreeing to put in new equipment to reduce ash, dust and smoke.
