The Pennsylvania State Department of Environmental Protection penalized Shipley Fuels for environmental violations that occurred in seven of the company’s gas stations and fueling facilities in a period of almost two years.
According to The Sentinel, two of the sites currently under investigation for Pennsylvania environmental harm violations are the Mechanicsburg Bulk Plant and the McCullough Oil Service in York.
The York and Mechanicsburg environmental harm violations range from failure to perform tank and piping release detection to failure to maintain containment sumps. However, the extent of the environmental problems is still under investigation. Conditions such as these could cause serious environmental injuries.
