Press Release

July 30, 2004
Westons Mobile Home Park

The Agency of Natural Resources announced today that the Enforcement Division has formally settled an environmental violation involving Westons Mobile Home Park in the Town of Berlin. The settlement includes a $4,000 supplemental environmental project.

Through the Agency's investigation, it was discovered that Westons Mobile Home Company, in the course of doing business, owns and operates a water system that serves approximately 121 people. This system failed to install a chlorination disinfection system with the capability to continuously disinfect the water supply, as required by State water supply regulations.

The matter came to light as a result of routine, Agency oversight. After the investigation was completed, Westons Mobile Home Park was notified of the violations and agreed to settle the matter. The Park has applied for and received a Permit to Construct the required system improvements.

The settlement was reduced to an Assurance of Discontinuance and was so ordered by the Environmental Court on July 23, 2004. In it, Westons Mobile Home Park agreed to come into compliance and fund a $4,000 supplemental environmental project.
