A New Hampshire contractor has been ordered to pay $18,000 for illegally removing and disposing of asbestos.
According to the Associated Press, Walter Jensen is the owner of Summer and Winter Construction was fined for illegally dumping asbestos that he removed from two projects. The work was done in 2005 and 2006.
The judge who made the ruling fined Jensen 10 times more than what Jensen made from the jobs because he had been the subject of two previous violations. The contractor was also found to have lied about the asbestos to the disposal company.
