The settlement, which includes an $80,000 dollar civil penalty – is over Flint Hills alleged mishandling of hazardous waste during groundwater cleanup actions at their North Pole petroleum refinery.

The EPA alleges that hazardous waste generated during the cleanup wasn’t labeled or stored properly, which caused two preventable dumpster fires.
