D&L appeals revocation of permits

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio - D&L Energy appealed a decision by the chief of the Division of Oil and Gas Resources Management to revoke and deny permits for the company.

D&L filed the appeal Monday along with a motion for stay that would allow the company to operate under the permits until a decision on the appeal is made.

The division revoked the company's permits in February after Hardrock Excavating was caught dumping brine wastewater in to a sewer drain outside of D&L on Salt Springs Road.

The two companies, D&L and Hardrock, are owned by Ben Lupo and operated out of the same location.

The appeal argues D&L should not be penalized for Hardrock's actions despite common ownership and address.

D&L claims the division erred by revoking its six permits, denying three permit applications and ordering the company to shut down injection well operations in the state.

Lupo faces federal criminal charges in the dumping case for violating the national Clean Water Act.
