A North Country firm has been fined $420,000 for failing to comply with a court order to close above-ground oil storage tank facilities in Gorham to prevent the Androscoggin River from being polluted.
The company is Munce’s Superior Petroleum and Harold Munce, according to a news release from the attorney general’s Environmental Protection Bureau.
The fine represents $1,000 a day for 420 days, the amount of time since Munce was ordered to remedy the problem, which was completed last June.
A North Country firm has been fined $192,000 over concerns about the potential for oil polluting the Androscoggin River.
