Penalties for Not Submitting Annual BPD Test Report Reduced
LVT Number: #28038
DEP issued three violation notices to landlord for failing to submit three annual test reports for backflow prevention devices. Landlord explained at a hearing that the devices had been tested on May 31, 2017, before the first scheduled hearing date. Landlord asked for reduced penalties. The ALJ ruled against landlord and fined it $1,500. Landlord appealed, and the total penalty was reduced to $150. Although the first hearing date had been rescheduled to July 13, 2017, landlord showed that it had cleared the violation before the first scheduled date.
