Bend Asphalt Company Fined By DEQ

BEND, OR -- A Bend asphalt sealing company faces penalties for allegedly dumping contaminated wastewater into a drywell on Northeast Second Street. Oregon’s Department of Environmental Quality issued a $2,375 fine, this week, to Toploc Asphalt Maintenance LLC, which does business as Central Oregon Asphalt Sealing.

 

According to the DEQ, the company disposed of industrial wastewater into a drain, last September. That drain leads to a drywell, which collects runoff and allows water to naturally drain into groundwater. Asphalt-based sealant contains hazardous substances and toxins, including petroleum products. 
 
The company has appealed the penalty.
