The federal government and the state of Ohio alleged that, between approximately 2006 and 2016, BP failed to properly operate and maintain emissions monitoring systems at the refinery and failed to immediately report releases of hazardous substances to the appropriate state and local authorities. BP agreed to pay $1,425,000 to the U.S. and $200,000 to Ohio for Clean Air Act and Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act violations; $75,000 for Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) violations; and $900,000 for violations of a 2001 consent decree.
