DEP Fines Dunn’s Tank Service Inc. $3,000 for Illegal Transfer Station

Company Was Storing Gas Well Drilling Wastewater Without Permit

Williamsport – The Department of Environmental Protection has fined Dunn’s Tank Service Inc. of Towanda, Bradford County, $3,000 for operating a waste transfer station without a permit last July in Wysox Township.

“Dunn’s was storing gas well drilling wastewater in tanker trailers and you must have a waste transfer station permit from DEP to do that,” said DEP Northcentral Regional Director Robert Yowell. “DEP will take similar enforcement action against any other such illegal facility in this region.”

DEP inspectors investigated a citizen complaint in late July and discovered two tanker trailers at the Dunn site holding about 10,000 to 12,000 gallons of gas well drilling wastewater.

A Dunn’s employee told DEP inspectors that his company was transporting the wastewater to the tanker trailers for temporary storage when disposal facilities were unable to accept it.

DEP sent Dunn’s a notice of violation letter containing requirements that all wastewater be removed from the site and that no additional wastewater be transported there.

A DEP inspection in August confirmed that the company had complied with those orders.

The fine was paid to the Solid Waste Abatement Fund that pays for cleanups across the state.
