Ryder Pays $22,500 Settlement

Ryder Truck Rental has agreed to pay a $22,500 penalty to settle alleged violations of underground storage tank (UST) regulations at a company facility in Wilmington, Del.

The EPA cited Ryder for not complying with safeguards designed to prevent, detect and control leaks of petroleum and other hazardous substances from USTs. The alleged violations involved two diesel fuel USTs, each with a 12,000 gallon capacity.

According to the EPA, Ryder failed to conduct required leak detection measures for various periods totaling more than six months, and failed to respond in a timely manner to a suspected fuel leak in 2009.

As part of the settlement, Ryder did not admit liability for the alleged violations. The settlement penalty reflects the company’s cooperation with the EPA in correcting the alleged non-compliance and resolving this matter, the agency says.
