DENVER (AP) - Environmental regulators say Dallas-based Reddy Ice Corp. has agreed to pay $61,500 to settle allegations of deficiencies at the ice maker’s facility in north Denver.

Reddy Ice stores the toxic chemical anhydrous ammonia at the site and is subject to the risk-management provisions of the Clean Air Act.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says an inspection on Dec. 5, 2010, found the company failed to ensure that storage vessels containing hazardous chemicals were constructed according to industry standards. It says the company also didn’t provide sufficient documentation in plans designed to mitigate on-site hazards.

The EPA said Thursday that Reddy Ice has agreed to correct deficiencies within 60 days.

A company representative didn’t immediately return a phone message seeking comment.
