Energy Company Fined $175,000 After Spill

A pair of energy companies in New Hampshire are on the hook for over $175,000 in EPA fines after diesel fuel from their gas station leaked into a nearby river earlier this year. Due to a broken leak detection system, the spill was not reported until neighboring businesses noticed a strong fuel smell three days later. An inspection by environmental officials following the spill determined that a proper spill prevention plan was not in place.
