August 25, 2022: Construction Company Fined $6.6 Million for Improperly Storing Hazardous Waste

A construction company in Oklahoma has been fined $6.6 million for improperly storing hazardous waste. The fine stems from a massive fire at the property owned by Bordwine Development Inc. The fire occurred in a building that was used to store hand sanitizer on August 7, 2022.
Bordwine Development is also facing a deadline to provide DEQ with an updated plan to dispose of hazardous waste. Following the fire, The Department of Environmental Quality issued an administrative compliance order to the company for improperly storing and disposing of hazardous waste without a permit.
DEQ Chief of Staff Robert Singletary said “Any contamination that’s occurred they’re responsible for remediating that contamination. And anything else that hasn’t been properly disposed of needs to be properly disposed of. And there’s going to be additional costs associated with that as well.”
