At the request of the Ohio EPA, the Ohio Attorney General has sued the owners of the Garfield Hts. Shopping Center for alleged EPA violations. According to a joint press release from the OEPA and AG offices, the Shopping Center was built over the site of 2 former landfills with provisos and conditions imposed by the OEPA related to solid waste (including landfill gas) and water pollution. The complaint, which was filed in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court (Case No. CV-08-664197 on the civil docket), seeks injunctive relief and civil penalties, including daily fines of $10,000, and alleges the following violations: "improper construction of the solid waste cap, improper installation of engineered components at constructed buildings, failure to control leachate that has caused the leachate to infiltrate through unauthorized, unlined collection ponds and through uncapped exposed waste, and failure to control the migration of landfill gas."
