LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District has issued a violation notice to LG&E.

The notice concerns coal ash and dust that blows from the companies Cane Run Road power plant in west Louisville.

The alleged violations cover a number of complaints from June through October of 2012.

Most of the complaints were captured on video by a plant neighbor.

LG&E installed a dust screen in 2012 to try to control the flying ash,  but neighbors said the screen did not help.

LG&E is facing up to $10,000 in fines for each day it is not in compliance.

The utility company said it is still reviewing the letter and alleged violations.
