Landlord Fined $500 for Not Filing Timely BPD Test Report

LVT Number: #30174

DEP issued a violation notice to landlord in 2018 for failing to submit an annual test report for a backflow prevention device within 12 months from the last submission in 2014. At a hearing, DEP acknowledged that landlord conducted the test in September 2018, before the first scheduled hearing date.

Landlord argued that it thought it had more time to file the report since the hearing had been rescheduled.
