BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — A Wisconsin man has been charged with tampering with environmental monitors, then covering it up at a southern Kentucky secondary aluminum production plant.
A federal grand jury in Bowling Green on Wednesday charged 59-year-old Daniel Evanoff of Plymouth, Wis., with conspiracy to defraud the United States and rendering inaccurate a required monitoring device.
The indictment states that between 2007 and November 2009, Evanoff and other coconspirators agreed to create false records concealing that J.L. French in Glasgow, Ky., exceeded production and air emissions limits. The indictment also states that Evanoff directed others to install a temperature resistor on air pollution control equipment to create a false temperature reading.
Evanoff served as the North American Alloy Manager for J.L. French. Court records did not list an attorney for Evanoff.
