From the article: "DEP staff conducted inspections of the facility on April 30 and May 1, finding violations that included failure to obtain an air quality approval for operating the cement mixing equipment, discharging industrial wastewater -- concrete truck wash water -- onto the ground without a permit, hazardous waste management violations, and conducting work in wetland resource areas without required approvals."
This article should be called "Attack of the Nanny State!"
Notice how many of the infractions dealt with failures to obtain proper permits and to deal with the state's reams of paperwork?
For example, who would think that a state permit is necessary to wash one's own truck on one's own land?
And does anyone wonder why businesses are fleeing Massachusetts?

If Gov. Patrick wants to solve part of Massachusetts budget crisis he might want first to close down permanently the state DEP.

Along with the Department of Education and the House of Reprentatives and Senate, at least we would have a slight chance then.
