State DOJ obtains judgment in environmental lawsuit

The Wisconsin Department of Justice has obtained a judgment in an environmental lawsuit in Kenosha County Circuit Court.

The state filed suit against Sani Enterprises LLC for violations of state environmental laws regulating the maintenance of underground tanks for storage, handling or use of flammable or combustible liquids, and the proper abandonment of unused tanks. The laws are designed to protect the waters of the state from harm due to contamination from such liquids.

The tanks are at 5616 75th St. in Kenosha.

According to the Wisconsin DOJ, Sani Enterprises did not bring its storage tanks into compliance until after the Department of Safety and Professional Services referred the violations to the DOJ.

As a result, Sani Enterprises has agreed to pay forfeitures, costs and surcharges totaling $5,000.

Wisconsin Assistant Attorney General Mary Batt represented the state. Kenosha County Circuit Court Judge Bruce Schroeder approved the settlement.
