Owners of Laurel Sand and Gravel and 1325 G Street Associates have agreed to pay a $170,000 fine issued against the companies in July by the Maryland Department of the Environment for sediment and water-pollution violations, The Laurel (Maryland) Leader reports.

The newspaper reports that the penalty, which was finalized in court documents dated Oct. 25, will be paid to MDE’s Clean Water Fund for charges MDE officials lodged against the companies that included “…unlawful discharges of wastewater, failure to follow an approved erosion and sediment control plan, and failure to comply with the mining permit at four current and former surface mining sites.”
