Landlord Fined for Standing Water in Parking Lot
LVT Number: #30795
The DOHMH issued a violation notice to landlord after its inspector saw green standing water collected in puddles on the ground in the back yard of landlord's building complex. Landlord stated that the back yard was covered by a paved parking lot with a storm water culvert at the boundary with other property. Landlord argued that DEP was responsible for maintaining the culvert, which was where the puddles were located. The ALJ ruled against landlord and fined it $300.
