Landlord Fined $500 for Failing to File Annual BPD Test Report
LVT Number: #28253
DEP issued a violation notice to landlord for failing to submit an annual test report for a backflow prevention device (BPD) at a building. Landlord's co-op board president argued that he was new in the position and that the building's plumber mistakenly told him there was only one BPD at the building, which had been tested and reported. He didn't realize there was a second BPD. The ALJ ruled against landlord and fined it $500. Landlord appealed and lost.
