Ohio EPA Asks AG For Help Pursuing Fine Against Rover Pipeline Builders

Jul 11, 2017


The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency is ordering the company building the Rover natural gas pipeline to come up with a plan to clean up its spills from fracking and get rid of diesel-soaked mud.

And it's asking the Attorney General's office to help pursue a proposed 900 thousand dollar fine against Energy Transfer Partners. EPA chief Craig Butler says Energy Transfer officials are refusing to negotiate over the cleanup from several spills in the spring. The company says it's trying to comply with the directives while also working with federal regulators.
