Pipeline Construction Company Fined For Violations
A company must pay about $800,000 for violations during construction of gas pipelines in several counties, according to the Department of Environmental Protection.
According to an agreement with DEP, Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company will pay a penalty of $210,000 and will fund a $540,000 cleanup program of illegal dump sites in Pike, Potter, Susquehanna, and Wayne Counties.
TGP will also pay about $50,000 in costs to DEP and state conservation districts.
DEP officials said inspections of construction sites revealed violations including discharge of sediment into protected waterways.
