Federal Contractor Misconduct Database (FCMD)
Violation of Petroleum Product Storage Regulations
According to a document from the State of Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management, on April 7, 2004, Textron was “in violation of RIDEM’s Rules and Regulations for Underground Storage Facilities Used for Petroleum Products and Hazardous Materials (“the UST Regulations”) and the Rules and Regulations for Hazardous Waste Management (“the Hazardous Waste Regulations”)… The Respondent was ordered in the NOV to achieve compliance with the UST and Hazardous Waste Regulations within 30 days of receipt of the NOV. A penalty in the amount of $10,736.00 was assessed in the NOV.” The following September, the state and Textron executed a Consent Agreement to resolve the enforcement action. Since Textron was found to have already achieved compliance with the order portion of the NOV, the penalty was reduced to $8,440.
