The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed a penalty of up to $157,500 against a bulk oil storage and distribution company for failing to plan for and guard against oil spills at its bulk oil storage facility in North Bath ME.
According to a complaint filed by EPA's New England office, Kaler Oil Company Inc did not have a Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) plan in place, as required by the federal Clean Water Act. Kaler faces a maximum penalty of $157,500, EPA said.
