VENTURA, Calif. -- A Ventura cement company was ordered to pay $37,000 as part of a civil environmental settlement on Monday.
District Attorney Gregory D. Totten announced that CEMEX Construction Materials Pacific, LLC was ordered to pay $37,000 as part of a civil environmental settlement.
The settlement, entered into without admission of liability, encompassed strict liability violations of the hazardous waste control law, unfair competition law and depositing deleterious substances into the waters of the state.
The case arose on June 5, 2018 when a CEMEX facility in Oxnard had a single spill of hazardous wastes on 548 Diaz Road.
CEMEX cleaned up the spill and cooperated with authorities to come into compliance.
Under the terms of the final judgement, CEMEX agreed to pay $37,000 as civil penalties and costs to the Department of Toxic Substances Control, Oxnard Fire Department and the District Attorney's Office as well as a filing fee to the Superior Court.
CEMEX is also enjoined from violating hazardous waste control law, unfair competition law and depositing deleterious substances into state waters.
