Company Pays $150,00 Over Water Pollution In North Country

Dec 13, 2012

The former owners of a company accused by the federal E.P.A. of water pollution in the North Country have paid a $150,000 fine to settle the accusation.

CSG Holdings – which formerly operated Columbia Sand & Gravel – recently paid the fine, according to a document from the E.P.A.

But EPA spokesman David Deegan said the company “did not admit or deny any of the facts and violations alleged in the complaint.”

The federal agency said the violations occurred between 2007 and 2010 and polluted the Connecticut River.

The E.P.A. could have levied fines of almost $533,000.

Lloyd A. Drew of Intervale was the president of CSG. He also owns a general contracting business in Intervale.
