Idaho company indicted in Anchorage for contamination on the North Slope

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — An Anchorage grand jury has indicted an Idaho company accused of falsifying records related to the cleanup of a contaminated pad on Alaska’s North Slope.

The Alaska attorney general’s office said Friday that DMC Technologies Inc., of Rexburg was indicted Tuesday, along with CEO Daniel McNair and McNair’s son, Daniel Ross McNair. Each faces 14 felony counts.

In a statement, the elder McNair’s lawyer says his client and DMC “emphatically deny engaging in any criminal conduct whatsoever.” Lawyer Robert Herz says McNair will fight the charges and “looks forward to vindicating himself in court.”

Prosecutors claim the parties submitted falsified lab data to the state and to Little Red Services, which hired DMC Technologies to clean up the pad.

The state says the company submitted reports showing the pad was cleaned, but an investigation revealed the pad remained contaminated and that further cleanup is required. The state says that cost Little Red Services $900,000.
