EPA: Barclays Center faces host of violations
Barclays Center is in “noncompliance” of several federal Environmental Protection Agency standards.
The New York Post reports that the arena also has racked up a slew of city building violations.
An EPA spokeswoman says the violations will cost the arena $7,500 fine for two compliance orders it has ignored. Those include issues involving its generators and “universal waste — small quantity handlers.”
The city violations include a $6,800 fire-prevention inspection fine issued last month. It also includes a $900 fine for a faulty elevator issued in April.
A spokeswoman for Forest City Enterprises says “any issue is dealt with in an efficient and timely manner.” Forest City holds a controlling interest in the arena.
