In re Stockton Oil Company

Case Number
48 ELR 47899

An EPA administrative law judge (ALJ) ordered an oil company to pay $14,613 for failing to monitor one if its three USTs for releases every 30 days from May 2012 through April 2013, in violation of RCRA. EPA alleged that the company violated rules for release detection under the Act. The ALJ found the company to be in default for failing to comply with the prehearing order, the order to show cause, and the prehearing exchange requirements, and thus found the facts alleged in EPA's complaint to be deemed admitted by the company.
