EPA fines Navy for problem in monitoring underground fuel tanks By Ed Friedrich Kitsap Sun (WA) January 17, 2012BANGOR - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has fined the Navy $161,000 for failing to properly monitor pipes and underground fuel storage tanks for leaks at Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor.
No leaks were detected, but if there were leaks, nobody would have noticed.
"Luckily we did not find a leak during the time period we were looking at," said Anne Christopher of the EPA's Groundwater Unit in Seattle. "But the whole point of the underground storage tank program is it's preventive. If there was a leak, they'd detect it quickly."
