WV Town Fined for Dumping Sewage

The town of Marmet has agreed to pay a $56,010 fine for dumping sewage on a hillside for 29 days.

The Charleston Daily Mail reports that Mayor Bill Pauley signed the proposed settlement with the state Department of Environmental Protection last month.

The violations stem from a pump outage at a sewage lift station last year. The DEP says Marmet has corrected the problem.

A final settlement is subject to public comments received by June 25.
