EPA cites Environmental Disposal Systems for numerous violations at Romulus facility

CHICAGO (Mar. 23, 2007) - U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5 today issued an administrative order to Environmental Disposal Systems Inc. (EDS),  Birmingham, Mich., for numerous violations at its hazardous waste disposal facility in Romulus, Mich.   EDS operated two hazardous waste disposal wells.

In November, EPA inspectors discovered a number of potential violations at the facility.   The administrative order cites the company for not complying with conditions of its permit by, among other things, failing to provide and keep adequate records, not conducting all required tests and monitoring, not having a trained well operator on site during injection, and not providing to EPA quarterly or annual reports.

The administrative order proposes that a penalty of $73,992 be assessed against EDS for the alleged violations.

The facility has not been operating since November 2006 by order of Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.
