Agency fines Crestwood subsidiary

SAVONA--The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has fined Crestwood's gas storage facility for a second time in six years for violations of accident-prevention rules at its Bath-Savona gas storage facility, according to an EPA press release. The Savona operation does business as Finger Lakes LPG Storage LLC.
EPA records indicate Crestwood has repeatedly failed to comply with basic required accident-prevention practices that include ensuring that equipment meets accepted engineering standards, ensuring that flare stacks are safe, ensuring that procedural changes don't make a process unsafe and testing tanks, pipes, valves, pumps, controls and emergency shut-offs for safety.
According to EPA documents the EPA has issued a second order against Crestwood, which has agreed to pay more than $300,000: half in fines and half in contributions to local fire departments. Payments include $85,000 to the Watkins Glen Fire Department.
Safety violations at Crestwood's Bath-Savona facility have now spanned nearly a decade, according to Gas Free Seneca.
Crestwood spokesperson Bill Gautreaux has repeatedly assured the public that the company's gas storage expansion on Seneca Lake is safe.
