Shipyard homebuilder fined for dust violations in Arizona

A homebuilder that was fined last year for improper dust management practices at a southeastern San Francisco construction site will pay $183,000 after committing similar violations in Arizona, the US Environmental Protection Agency announced Thursday.

Lennar Corp. agreed to pay a $38,425 fine and provide $144,094 towards an environmental project in a settlement agreement with the EPA, according to the agency.

The settlement related to dust violations at a handful of homebuilding sites in Maricopa County near Phoenix between November 2003 and January 2005, according to a statement issued by the EPA.

Last year, the Miami-based homebuilding giant
was fined $515,000 by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District for dust violations at a homebuilding site in the shuttered Hunters Point Naval Shipyard, which is it redeveloping through a partnership with San Francisco.
