The Associated Press reported that environmental groups are upset with a settlement of alleged violations of the clean air act involving a Muncie’s lead smelter. The company will not be required to retrofit its facilities with equipment that could cut lead emissions.
As quoted in the publication:

The groups wanted the company to retrofit the Muncie facility where it recycles millions of lead-acid automotive, truck and other batteries to add equipment called wet electrostatic precipitators. Such equipment, they said, has allowed an Indianapolis smelter to cut its lead emissions to a fraction of their prior level.
Indra Frank, a physician who’s the Hoosier Environmental Council’s health director, said the groups understand the U.S. Justice Department’s legal argument explaining why the pollution controls weren’t agreed to for Exide Technologies.
