MassDEP Issues Penalty to Cretecrew Concrete Services for Waste Site Cleanup Violations

BOSTON — The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) announced it has assessed a $31,000 penalty to Cretecrew Concrete Services, Inc., a concrete foundation company based in Westfield, for failing to complete cleanup of a hydraulic oil spill that occurred at a construction site in Chicopee.
 
On Sept. 20, 2019, the Chicopee Fire Department notified MassDEP regarding the spill of up to 15 gallons of hydraulic oil associated with the failure of a hydraulic hose on a concrete form truck owned and operated by Cretecrew. The spill occurred at a construction site at 114 McKinstry Avenue in Chicopee. 
 
MassDEP staff inspected the site that day and confirmed that a reportable spill of hydraulic fluid to the environment had occurred. Massachusetts regulations require that spills of more than 10 gallons be reported to MassDEP and that immediate cleanup be undertaken. MassDEP staff spoke with Cretecrew on that date to advise of the necessary cleanup.
 
"MassDEP made numerous attempts to assist Cretecrew Concrete Services in complying with Massachusetts waste site cleanup regulations," Michael Gorski, director of MassDEP’s Western Regional Office in Springfield said. "MassDEP will continue to ensure that parties responsible for oil spills undertake all required cleanup actions."
