Garelick Farms fined for Franklin diesel spill

FRANKLIN

Local dairy products producer Garelick Farms LLC was fined by the state Department of Environmental Protection for failing to act promptly when 50 gallons of diesel fuel was spilled at its Franklin facility.

According to the state, a truck at Garelick spilled the fuel, a quantity that requires notification of authorities within two hours.

The company, headquartered in Delaware, was fined $8,280 for waiting five hours to report the spill, then taking several more hours before hiring a contractor to clean it up.
