A Washington Township property owner could face fines of $25,000 per day if he doesn't submit an application to the Department of Environmental Protection or undo work which officials said violated state law.
Though Kourgelis has not yet filed an application, his attorney has been in contact with the DEP Division of Land Use, according to DEP rep Bob Considine.
Kourgelis could not immediately be reached for comment.
In the latest Notice of Violation, DEP officials wrote they were preparing an Administrative Order and Notice of Civil Administrative Penalty Assessment. The AONOCAPA can be a long legal process, which the DEP usually avoids by working with a violator, but it is sometimes necessary in order to bring a site back into compliance with the law, according to Considine.
