A Consent Assessment of Civil Penalty signed by Halliburton (issued by the Pennsylvania Dept of Environmental Protection) in which Halliburton admits to guilt over hauling, storing and treating over the legal limit of hydrochloric acid (HCl) at a facility in Homer City, PA. This activity went on from 1999 to 2011. Halliburton was given a pass because they claimed the quantities of HCl they handled at the facility was small enough to exempt them from PA's Solid Waste Management Act of 1980. The DEP eventually investigated and discovered the violation and fined Halliburon $1.8 million--one of the largest fines in PA DEP history.
