A State Board Approves $361,000 Fine against CSX Transportation for 2014 Derailment, Oil Spill in Lynchburg

A state board has approved a $361,000 fine against CSX Transportation for a 2014 derailment in Lynchburg that spilled Bakken crude oil into the James River. The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality proposed the fine in a consent order that CSX approved. CSX also agreed to complete restoration of the river bank in the area of the derailment and monitor the river for any long-term environmental impacts from the incident. The consent agreement also calls for CSX to pay more than $18,500 for DEQ's investigative costs. Seventeen cars derailed on April 30, 2014, with three going into the river and one catching fire.
