DOVER, Del.- The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control has issued a penalty to Summit Aviation, Inc. for hazardous waste violations.

DNREC Secretary Collin O'Mara issued a penalty of $81,426 and $12,214 in cost recovery for DNREC, saying the company violated the state's hazardous waste management laws and regulations.

DNREC says Summit Aviation operates a full-service center providing aircraft maintenance and repair services at 4200 Summit Bridge Road in Middletown, Del. DNREC says it found 18 violations during a compliance assessment at the site on Sept. 26.

The violations include operating a hazardous waste containment building without meeting the necessary engineering design criteria, failing to make proper hazardous waste determinations, failure to properly label containers of hazardous waste and used oil, and failure to close containers of hazardous waste and used oil.  

According to DNREC, other violations Summit Aviation was cited for included failure to develop a contingency plan to be implemented in the event of a hazardous waste spill or release, failure to conduct weekly inspections of hazardous waste accumulation areas, and failure to provide training for its employees responsible for handling hazardous waste.
Summit Aviation has 30 days to appeal the order.
