Kmart Reports Environmental Violations To EPA, Pays Fine
Kmart will pay a $102,422 fine to settle self-disclosed violations of federal environmental regulations discovered at 17 distribution centers in 13 states. The company reported violations of clean water, hazardous waste, and emergency planning and preparedness regulations to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. If EPA had discovered Kmart’s violations through an inspection, the company would have faced a fine of more than $1.6 million.
Kmart audited its programs under an EPA policy that provides incentives to companies that discover, disclose, and correct environmental violations.
