The violations date back to 2008 through 2010. According to EPA data, the agency found violations at seven gas stations in Malone, Massena, Moira, Plattsburgh, and Canton. The violations include failing to provide and test overfill protection on underground petroleum tanks and failing to maintain proper records. According to the Watertown Daily Times, a 2011 complaint in district court also mentions that a kerosene leak sensor was tripped but not reported for almost three months.

Adirondack Energy Products owns the gas stations. In a press release, the company said "zero harm" was done to the environment and that officials were "unaware" of federal reporting requirements. The release says DEC inspections have found the facilities to be compliant under state law.

Adirondack Energy is owned by the Monette family of Malone, which also owns the Holiday Inn there and bought the Titus Mountain ski area two years ago.
