U.Va., EPA settle

The University has paid an additional $8,500 to the Environmental Protection Agency to settle alleged violations of hazardous waste regulations.

The EPA cited the University for generating and storing hazardous waste without a permit at labs and collection centers around Grounds.

In January, the University paid a $25,490 penalty for failing to develop and keep on site an oil spill prevention plan for above-ground oil tanks with a combined capacity of nearly 100,000 gallons.

In addition to the fines, U.Va. submitted a spill prevention plan and certified it would comply with EPA rules.

The fines resulted from inspections the EPA and the state Department of Environmental Quality conducted in June and September 1999.

As part of the settlement, the University neither admitted nor denied liability for the alleged violations.
