The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has revoked a permit for the Rolling Hills Construction and Demolition Debris Disposal Facility in Pensacola, Florida, and says it will file a lawsuit against the company in Escambia County. A copy of the Notice and Order of Revocation can be found here.
The Notice and Order of Revocation issued to South Palafox Properties LLC alleges that compliance issues at the Rolling Hills Construction and Demolition Debris Disposal Facility constitute violations of Florida law. Such compliance issues include the facility operating outside of permitted dimensions and failure to implement the Remedial Action Plan approval order issued by the department July 3, 2013.
“We are committed to taking any and all regulatory and enforcement action available to us to ensure the ongoing compliance issues at the Rolling Hills Construction and Demolition Debris Facility are addressed,” says Florida DEP Northwest District Director Shawn Hamilton. “We have worked diligently with the facility in an effort to address the issues, and, despite our attempts, the noncompliance continues. Revoking the permit and filing the lawsuit will prevent further violations and compel the facility to address compliance issues and implement corrective actions as required.”
The DEP says it will file a lawsuit against South Palafox Properties LLC seeking a judgment that will order the company to resolve compliance violations and comply with department orders.
