GROTON, Conn. — Housing providers at Navy bases in Connecticut and Maine have been accused of failing to notify tenants about potential lead paint hazards.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says military families were not informed of the potential health dangers at the Naval Submarine Base New London in Groton, Conn., and the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine.

The EPA said today that Northeast Housing LLC and Balfour Beatty Military Housing Management LLC face a possible fine of $153,070 for the alleged violation of disclosure laws. It says housing at both bases is owned by Northeast, a joint venture between the Department of the Navy and a subsidiary of Balfour Beatty Communities LLC.

Officials at Balfour Beatty did not respond to calls seeking comment today.
