Klamath Falls, OR—The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality has issued Sushil Kumar a $1,624 penalty for failing to comply with a final order involving underground storage tanks. Kumar owns Ray's Market #2, a fueling station at 4237 Greensprings Drive in Klamath Falls. DEQ also proposes to revoke Kumar's operating certificate, which would prohibit the business from selling fuel.
In April 2017, DEQ issued Kumar a civil penalty requiring him to submit testing results and other records related to piping integrity and leak detection of his underground storage tanks. Kumar did not provide DEQ with the required documentation.
DEQ is now proposing to revoke Kumar's operating certificate, which is required to receive, store or dispense fuel. DEQ will consider withdrawing the revocation if Kumar provides the required documentation and retrains his operators on how to properly operate the system.
