Ohio and Eramet Marietta have resolved what Attorney General Mike DeWine says were the company's violations of the state's hazardous waste laws.

This was done with a consent order announced by DeWine.
 
The announcement says the order covers "the company's inadequate response to a previous release of a hazardous waste chromium solution at the facility."
 
Eramet Marietta makes a manganese alloy at its plant southwest of Marietta.
 
The announcement also says, "Eramet has agreed to address the release area at its 834 Crystallizer Unit to eliminate potential threats to public health and the environment."
 
According to a news release, the company has submitted a hazardous waste closure plan to the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency and agreed to pay a $75,000 civil penalty.
 
Eramet's hazardous waste closure plan for the release area is open to public comment through April 8.
