Regulators Seek Fines Against Morgantown Developer

Department of Environmental Protection, DEP

  West Virginia regulators are seeking daily fines of $25,000 against a Morgantown industrial park developer for alleged environmental violations.

The Department of Environmental Protection filed a complaint Thursday in Monongalia County Circuit Court against LPG Land & Development Corp.

The company has an 18-acre industrial park in the Cheat Lake area.

The DEP’s Division of Water and Waste Management issued 12 notices of violation against the company from September 2010 to May 2013.

The Dominion Post reports an LPG representative said the company hadn’t seen the complaint and declined comment.
