MONTGOMERY COUNTY COMPANY
CHARGED WITH WATER POLLUTION

Attorney General J. Joseph Curran, Jr. announced today that John J. Kirlin, Inc., a Maryland Corporation, was charged in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County on April 1 with water pollution. The charge alleges that Kirlin violated the State's water pollution laws on April 12, 2002 by illegally discharging wastewater into waters of the State. The discharge is alleged to have occurred at the company's facility at 75 Derwood Circle in Rockville.

If convicted of the charge, Kirlin could be fined up to $25,000.

The filing of charges is merely an accusation of criminal wrongdoing and anyone charged is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

These charges follow a joint investigation conducted by the Environmental Crimes Unit of the Office of the Attorney General and the Maryland State Police, with the assistance of the Maryland Department of Environment.

Trial has been set for June 30th in Rockville.
