Pollution Violations (Greenwich Township Refinery)
The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection reached a settlement with Valero over dozens of air pollution violations at Valero’s refinery in Greenwich Township during 2005, 2006 and early 2007. The DEP cited Valero for exceeding overall emissions limits, violating stack-emission testing requirements, exceeding emission standards for pollutants during stack tests, failing to maintain records for monitoring of an air scrubber, and deviating from various other leak detection and repair requirements. Valero will pay a penalty of $905,796 and fund special community projects worth $977,808 that include emergency alert systems and improvements to local schools’ heating and ventilation systems.
