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. But DEP argued that landlord was responsible for the standard civil penalty because the test report wasn't submitted to DEP until after the hearing date. Landlord argued that it thought it had more time to file the report since the hearing had been rescheduled.
