ROCKVILLE CAR WASH CHARGED WITH WATER POLLUTION

Maryland Attorney General J. Joseph Curran announced today that water pollution charges have been filed against M.J.L. Corporation trading as Touch*Less Car Wash located at 16185 Shady Grove Road in North Rockville Maryland. The charging document alleges that on November 10, 2005 Touch*Less Car Wash discharged waste water into a manhole leading to the storm-water management pond located along Shady Grove Road northeast of MD Rt. 355 in North Rockville, Montgomery County.

If convicted of the offense, M.J.L., a Maryland corporation, could receive a maximum fine of $25,000. The filing of a criminal information is merely an accusation of criminal wrongdoing. All defendants, whether corporate or individual, are presumed innocent until proven guilty.

These charges follow a joint investigation conducted by the Environmental Crimes Unit of the Office of the Attorney General, the Maryland Department of the Environment, the Montgomery County Division of Environmental Policy and Compliance, the State Highway Administration and the Maryland State Police. A preliminary hearing date has been set for August 22, 2006 in the District Court of Maryland for Montgomery County located in Rockville.
