Detroit Jeep Plant’s Paint Fumes Trigger Air Quality Violation

Stellantis NV’s Jeep plant in Detroit received another air quality violation, the fourth in less than a year after residents in the surrounding neighborhood complained of paint fumes.

An investigator from the Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy, Michigan’s environmental regulator, issued the violation notice after inspecting the area last week. The department found “objectionable” odors that were of “sufficient intensity, duration and frequency to constitute an unreasonable interference with the comfortable enjoyment of life and property,” according to the notice.
