 EPA ISSUES ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER TO JOHN W. CLARK OIL COMPANY, INC.,
 ASHLAND, KY., FOR UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS VIOLATIONS
 ATLANTA, March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced today it has issued an Administrative Complaint and Compliance Order to John W. Clark Oil Company, Inc., of Ashland, Ky.
 The order was issued for alleged violations of the Underground Storage Tank (UST) provisions of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).
 According to the order, the company failed to comply with the release detection requirements for underground storage tanks. The order assesses a civil penalty of $21,389 and requires the company to comply with UST release detection requirements or complete closure procedures within 30 days. Also, the company must submit a report to EPA which documents and certifies compliance within 45 days of the effective date of the order. If the company fails to comply, it may be subject to a civil penalty of up to $10,000 for each day of continued noncompliance.
 John W. Clark Oil Company, Inc. owns underground storage tanks that are used to store regulated substances at its facilities in Ashland and Greenup, Ky. EPA inspections revealed that the company failed to provide release detection for three pressurized piping systems at its Borders Summitt Market, U.S. Route 60 W in Ashland and four pressurized piping systems at its Highway 23 Gulf Service facility in Greenup, Ky.
 Federal regulations require, in part, that an owner/operator of an UST system comply with the release detection requirements which are phased-in based upon the age of the UST system. The regulations also require release detection for all pressurized piping.
