ExxonMobil to Pay $10.75 Million for New York State Oil Spill Clean Up

This is a settlement for the Environment Law lawsuit.

Santa Clara, CA: A $10.75 million fine has been levied against ExxonMobil Corp. and ExxonMobil Oil Corp., in an environmental action brought by New York State. The fine will be paid into the New York Environmental Protection and Spill Compensation Fund (Oil Spill Fund) for oil cleanup at eight locations in New York.

The spill sites involved in the case, which were operated as gas stations, are Hilltop Service Station in Mahopac (Putnam County); Joe' Country Convenience Store in Campbell Hall (Orange County); Raceway Exxon in Monticello (Sullivan County); Courtney George Service Station in Albany (Albany County); Zanella' Market Hill Service in Amsterdam (Montgomery County); Harry' Service Station in Jordan (Onondaga County); Scio Mini Mart in Scio (Allegany County); and Boller' Auto Sales in West Seneca (Erie County).

According to the joint government agencies perusing the action, headed by State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli and Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman, the settlement transfers the responsibility of the oil spill cleanups from taxpayers to the party responsible.

ExxonMobil must also address all future remediation activities at four of the sites that still require cleanup.
