Two So. Md. Families Fined for Water Pollution Violations


BALTIMORE (June 22, 2011) – The Maryland Department of the Environment on Wednesday announced 38 recent major enforcement actions state-wide for alleged violations of MDE requirements for land, air and radiation management, water, and wetlands. Two of those actions were for water pollution violations against citizens in southern Maryland.

JULIA HURLEY, LA PLATA, CHARLES COUNTY: On April 20, 2011, MDE finalized an administrative Settlement Agreement requiring a $1,000 penalty be paid to the Clean Water Fund in resolution of alleged unlawful discharges of wastewater from a failed septic system in the 7000 block of Robin Road.

J. DONALD AND MARIE BURROUGHS, ST. MARY’S COUNTY: On March 29, 2011, Mr. and Mrs. Burroughs paid $5,500 to the Clean Water Fund to resolve forest harvest operations that allegedly occurred at the site without the implementation of the approved erosion and sediment control plan specific to the stream crossing, placing sediment in a position likely to pollute, and causing sediment pollution to an unnamed tributary to Indian Creek.
