While we’ve known this was in the works for a couple of years now (a “little bird” gave us an early heads up!), we’re thrilled for it to finally happen. Thank you to all those involved in this enforcement action.
Of course – as with most of the EPA fines to date, fines overall seem low and given the magnitude of the violation combined with the financial assets of the “perpetrator” – it seems like a more appropriate (larger) fine could have been assessed in this case.
