Coal Company Fined in Fake Pollution Reports Case
"A high-profile Kentucky environmental enforcement action involving hundreds of alleged clean-water violations at dozens of mining operations in Eastern Kentucky apparently is coming to a close."
"State regulators, the International Coal Group — now part of Arch Coal — and environmental groups on Friday filed an agreement that assesses $575,000 in penalties and directs the money to environmental improvement projects.
The amount reflects an original $350,000 assessment plus an additional $225,000 from more recent alleged violations that were rolled into the settlement."
