Attorney General T.J. Donovan announced today that his office has reached a settlement with JAM Fuel, LLC, doing business as JAM Fuels, and Joshua A. Marcell to resolve claims arising out of a 2018 fuel oil spill at a residence in Springfield, Vermont. The State filed a civil enforcement complaint in Windsor Superior Court in 2019, alleging violations of Vermont’s Hazardous Waste Management Regulations and Aboveground Storage Tank Rules.

Under the court-approved settlement, JAM Fuels and Mr. Marcell will pay a penalty of $20,250. They also reimbursed the State $45,337.78 in cleanup costs that had been paid out of the Environmental Contingency Fund. In addition, they registered the company as a hazardous waste generator. The Agency of Natural Resources worked closely with the Attorney General’s Office in support of the case.

Windsor Superior Court approved the settlement agreement on January 26th.
