Philadelphia service station settles with EPA on UST violations

A Sunoco service station has agreed to pay over $20,000 for an alleged violation of two gasoline underground storage stanks.

Last update:

The owner and operator of the F-Street Sunoco service station, 3951 Roosevelt Boulevard, Philadelphia have agreed to pay a $22,080 penalty to settle alleged violations of underground storage tank regulations, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced recently.

The settlement with the service station owner and operator addresses environmental safeguards protecting communities and the environment from exposure to petroleum or potentially harmful chemicals, according to Water Online.

EPA cited the companies for violating safeguards designed to prevent, detect, and control leaks from the underground tanks. Based on a September 2017 inspection and follow-up investigations, EPA alleged that two underground gasoline tanks failed to comply with leak detection and recordkeeping requirements for a 27-month period in 2015 through 2017.

The companies did not admit liability but they have certified that the station is now in compliance as part of the settlement.
