XTO Energy Inc. to Pay $2.3 Million for Violating Clean Water Act in West Virginia
Dec 22 14
The Department of Justice and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced that XTO Energy Inc. will pay a civil penalty of $2.3 million for violations of the Clean Water Act and West Virginia law. The Clean Water Act prohibits the filling or damming of wetlands, rivers, streams, and other waters of the United States without a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers or Corps. The Clean Water Act requires a company to obtain a permit prior to discharging dredge or fill material into wetlands, rivers, streams, and other waters of the United States. The settlement also resolves alleged violations of state law asserted by WVDEP. The state of West Virginia is a co-plaintiff in the settlement and will receive half of the $2.3 million civil penalty. XTO Energy will spend an estimated $3 million to restore eight sites damaged by unauthorized discharges of fill material into streams and wetlands in connection with hydraulic fracturing operations. XTO will also implement a comprehensive plan to comply with federal and state water protection laws at the company's oil and gas extraction facilities in West Virginia that use horizontal drilling methods. The federal government and the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection or WVDEP allege that the company impacted streams and discharged sand, dirt, rocks and other fill material into streams and wetlands without a federal permit in order to construct well pads, road crossings, freshwater pits, and other facilities related to natural gas extraction. The alleged violations being resolved by settlement occurred at eight sites located in the West Virginia Counties of Harrison, Marion and Upshur. The federal government and WVDEP allege that the violations impacted more than 5,300 linear feet of stream, and 3.38 acres of wetlands.
