Envirosafe fined $180,000 by EPA for multiple violations


Oregon-based Envirosafe Services of Ohio Inc. has agreed to pay a $180,000 fine to the state of Ohio to resolve a number of violations filed against the company between 2007 and 2009.

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency Tuesday outlined multiple ways in which its inspectors believed waste was managed improperly and records were incomplete at the company's landfill along Otter Creek Road.

Envirosafe has agreed to bring the facility back into compliance, do a better job of monitoring and operating the site's leachate-collection systems, and improve record-keeping and inspections of its containment building and trenches.

The state regulator also wants proof of employees being properly trained to measure and remove liquids from the raw water line trench sumps. A copy of the settlement is online at www.epa.ohio.gov/dhwm/2010aco.aspx.
