U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Justice Announces Chesapeake Appalachia, L.L.C. to Pay $3.2 Million Penalty to Resolve Clean Water Violations in West Virginia

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Justice announced that Chesapeake Appalachia, LLC, will spend an EPA-estimated $6.5 million to restore 27 sites damaged by unauthorized discharges of fill material into streams and wetlands and to implement a comprehensive plan to comply with federal and state water protection laws at the company's natural gas extraction sites in West Virginia, many of which involve hydraulic fracturing operations. The company will also pay a civil penalty of $3.2 million, one of the large ever levied by the federal government for violations of the Clean Water Act (CWA), under the Section 404 program, which requires a federal permit prior to the discharge of dredge or fill material materials into wetlands, rivers, streams, and other waters of the United States. The federal government and the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP) allege that the company impounded streams and discharged sand, dirt, rocks and other fill material into streams and wetlands without a federal permit in order to construct well pads, impoundments, road crossings and other facilities related to natural gas extraction. The alleged violations being resolved by today's settlement occurred at 27 sites located in the West Virginia Counties of Boone, Kanawha, Lewis, Marshall, Mingo, Preston, Upshur and Wetzel, including 16 sites involving hydraulic fracturing operations. The government alleges that the violations impacted over 12,000 linear feet of stream, or approximately 2.2 miles, and more than three acres of wetlands. The settlement requires that the company fully restore the wetlands and streams wherever feasible, monitor the restored sites for up to 10 years to assure the success of the restoration, and implement a comprehensive compliance program to ensure future compliance with the CWA and applicable state law. The company will also perform compensatory mitigation, which will likely involve purchasing credits from a wetland mitigation bank located in a local watershed.
