EPA Fines Central Idaho Company

The Environmental Protection Agency says an oil distributor has agreed to pay a fine for violating the Clean Water Act at a facility in central Idaho. The EPA’s regional office in Seattle said Monday that Kimble Oil, Inc. will pay $15,000 to settle the violations at its facility in Challis. The violations were found during site visits in August 2009, according to the EPA. The agency says Kimble Oil was cited for several issues, including failure to prepare an adequate spill prevention plan; failure to control proper drainage for some areas; and failure to conduct inspections and meet standards for spill prevention training. The facility is roughly 50 feet from a creek that connects to a slough and then the Salmon River, according to the EPA.
