Cottonwood Creek, Inc. to Pay $170,000 for Clean Water Act Violations at Oil Pumping Facility in Big Horn County, Wyoming
Jul 15 15
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced a settlement with Cottonwood Creek Inc. in which the company has agreed to pay a $170,000 penalty to resolve alleged violations of the Clean Water Act related to oil pollution at the Bonanza Station in Big Horn County, Wyoming. The agreement resolves alleged violations of the Clean Water Act's requirements for oil and gas operations at the Bonanza Station, an oil gathering, pumping and storage facility, including a March 8, 2010, pipeline discharge of approximately 162 barrels of crude oil into a tributary of the Nowood River. The agreement also resolves allegations that Cottonwood Creek Inc. violated EPA regulations regarding the preparation and implementation of a Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan and a Facility Response Plan (FRP). These plans are the first line of defense for preventing oil discharges and providing immediate containment measures when an oil discharge does occur. The company cleaned up the oil release and ultimately submitted an acceptable FRP. The settlement requires Cottonwood Creek Inc. to pay a civil penalty of $170,000 which will be deposited nto the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund, a fund used by federal agencies to respond to discharges of oil and hazardous substances.
