ELR Citation: 14 ELR 20094
Nos. No. 80-0647, 19 ERC 1891/(M.D. Pa., 07/27/1983)

The court finds that defendant operators of a community water supply system have violated the Safe Drinking Water Act by failing to conduct required tests of the water supplied, to report to the Environmental Protection Agency the results of any tests that have been conducted, and to give notice to the Agency and the users of the system of the above violations. Finding defendants' violations willful, the court imposes a civil penalty of $25,000. In addition, the court grants injunctive relief directing defendants to comply with the testing and other requirements of the Act and the pertinent regulations.
