Plantation Pipe Line Co. has agreed to pay a civil penalty and implement safeguards in order to resolve a Clean Water Act lawsuit over fuel pipeline spills in three states. On 27 November 2006, at least 97 barrels of gasoline leaked from a Plantation pipeline in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, some flowing into Paw Creek. On 22 February 2003, at least 788 barrels of gasoline spilled from a pipeline in Hull, Georgia, some entering a tributary of East Sandy Creek. On 13 March 2002, at least 20 barrels of jet fuel were discharged from a pipeline in Alexandria, Virginia. On 10 January 2000, at least 100 barrels of jet fuel leaked from a pipeline in Newington, Virginia, some of which spilled into Accotink Creek. The lawsuit also cited Plantation Pipe Line for failing to prepare and implement a required spill prevention, control and countermeasure plan for a 420,000 gallon oil storage tank. The company has agreed to pay a USD 725,000 penalty for discharges of jet fuel and gasoline in Virginia, Georgia and North Carolina, and for inadequate spill prevention safeguards at a Virginia facility. The company has also agreed to implement USD 1.3 million in new spill prevention safeguards.
