Companies Face Fines for Lead Paint Disclosure Violations at Two Navy Bases in New England

Two companies face a possible fine of $153,070 for violating lead paint disclosure laws at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine and the Naval Submarine Base New London in Groton, Connecticut. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency asserts in its complaint that Northeast Housing, LLC and Balfour Beatty Military Housing Management, LLC failed on multiple occasions over several years to notify prospective tenants, including families with young children, about potential lead paint hazards in housing. Notifying prospective tenants and purchasers of housing units helps parents protect young children from exposure to lead-based paint hazards. Read more about this story here.
