DEP Data Execution Prevention (computer security) ) has filed a Complaint In Equity in Columbia County Columbia County is the name of eight counties in the United States:
The complaint asks the court to require each generator to remove its share of the scrap tires at the site and to assess a civil penalty of $100 per day against any generator who fails to comply with the court's order.
DEP was able to determine the names of some of the tire generators and the approximate number of tires taken to the Start property by reviewing old records kept by the Starr family, which owned the property.
Staff from DEP's Northcentral Regional Office have been working on individual legal agreements with tire generators since April, getting agreements from 10 generators to remove a total of 130,000 tires at the generators' expense. However, another 21 generators refused to cooperate, re suiting in DEP's legal action.
A legal agreement signed in March 2004 by DEP and the Starts granted the agency unrestricted access to the Start property and required the Starrs to pay a $400,000 civil penalty.
In addition, the DEP has launched a new Start Waste Tire Reuse reuse - Using code developed for one application program in another application. Traditionally achieved using program libraries. Object-oriented programming offers reusability of code via its techniques of inheritance and genericity. Grant Program to help fund projects that will create markets for the tires.
The grant program will fund projects that create new products from used tires that are stockpiled in Pennsylvania Pennsylvania (pĕnsəlvā`nyə), one of the Middle Atlantic states of the United States.
