The Department of Environmental Protection has fined Advanced Disposal Solutions, formerly known as Veolia Environmental Services, more than $108,000.

The company failed to improperly install, certify, and test a waste handling system in Mount Joy Township last November, resulting in a 2,500 gallon release of untreated leachate into a tributary of Little Chiques Creek.

A second leak of 4,300 gallons of the same type of waste water occurred later that month.
