EPA: About 40K gallons of oil, water removed near D&L property

Published: Fri, February 8, 2013 @ 5:26 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — In its first official statement on the matter, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today announced that approximately 40,000 gallons of oil and water have been removed from the creek and storm sewer near D&L Energy property.

The agency said 42 cubic yards of “oiled debris” have been collected for proper disposal, as well.

The waste was first dumped into the drain by an employee of Hardrock Excavating, at the direction of D&L Energy owner, Ben W. Lupo, who also owns Hardrock, regulators said.

Both state and federal agencies are still awaiting the test results of samples taken at the site, 2761 Salt Springs Road, to determine what chemicals were in the substance.

Well that's a deal only a quarter a gallon in fines to dump toxic waste. Including the water it contaminates. just have them pay a few hundred thousand in fines and then can dump a few million gallons. then as the land and water is contaminated they can buy the houses and land for pennies on the dollar and contaminate the whole area. We can soon be number one as the most contaminated area in the US .

Was my sarcasm not apparent with all the blahblahblahs ? Sorry if it fell on deaf ears when I thought I had layed it on thick enough.

Or perhaps yours was a knee jerk response to you expecting the usual browbeating that comes on these pages from the usual faux news cronies ? That's what I was trying to point out anyhow....
