(04/10/03) Curtis Wayne Ford, owner of Western Slope Radiator in Grand Junction, Colo., was charged on March 21 in Mesa County Colorado District Court with violating the Colorado Hazardous Waste Act for allegedly storing hazardous wastes without a permit. The unpermitted storage of hazardous wastes can present a human health hazard to individuals who visit or perform work at the facility. This case is the result of a joint investigation by the Colorado State Attorney General’s Office and the Denver Area Office of EPA’s Criminal Investigation Division. It is being prosecuted by the Colorado Attorney General’s Office in Denver. The bringing of charges is merely an accusation and all defendants are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty in a court of law.
