VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - The U.S. Navy has settled allegations that it violated hazardous waste and underground storage tank regulations at a Virginia Beach facility.
The Environmental Protection Agency says the Navy agreed to pay a $32,800 civil penalty.
Federal regulators cited the Navy for allegedly storing hazardous waste at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story and failing to label containers with date and contents. The Navy also allegedly didn't determine whether the waste was hazardous.
Other citations allege that two underground storage tanks didn't have functioning spill and over fill equipment. The Navy also was cited for failing to notify the state when a new tank containing oil was installed.
Under the settlement, the Navy didn't admit or deny liability for the alleged violations.
