New Hampshire Facility to Pay Fines for Violating Clean Water Act

CSG Holdings, Inc., a sand and gravel company in New Hampshire has been fined $150,000 for violating the Clean Water Act.

The EPA has fined CSG holdings $150,000 for allowing polluted stormwater and process water from its facility in New Hampshire to flow into nearby waterways, which is a violation of the Clean Water Act. The facility is a sand and gravel mining plant that sits on the banks of the Connecticut River.

According to EPA, CSG pumped out waste waters and stormwater from its facility, and failed to have a Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure Plan. After close monitoring by the EPA, it was confirmed that the water discharged from the facility contained high levels of suspended solids, a pollutant that can negatively affect the water quality and create stress for aquatic animals and plants.

EPA is working to bring facilities in the aggregate industry, such as CSG, into compliance with stormwater regulations. The effort includes enforcement actions and has also included development of written materials, web sites, workshops, and other products to help those involved in sand and gravel mining to understand how to comply with stormwater laws at their facilities.
