The state’s Attorney General office on Monday obtained a stipulated judgment resolving a Dane County civil action filed against Steven M. Beck and Absolute Well & Pump Service LLC, Eagle.
The civil complaint filed against the defendants in December alleged that Beck and his company violated state law by failing to submit 276 required well abandonment reports within 30 days of abandoning certain private wells during 2008. The civil complaint also alleges that the defendants installed new wells and performed pump work and failed to provide the Department of Natural Resources and pump owners with water sample analysis within the legal requisite period of time.
The defendants have been ordered to pay $10,000 in forfeitures and statutory penalties.
Assistant Attorney General Cynthia R. Hirsch prosecuted the case. The settlement was approved by Dane County Circuit Court Judge John C. Albert.
