State regulators have fined a Kanawha County school contractor more than $13,000 for environmental violations.
A consent order said the violations include failure to control dust, failure to protect groundwater quality and failure to operate and maintain erosion-control devices.
The Department of Environmental Protection issued the fine in a settlement with Sissonville-based Carpenter Reclamation Inc.
The violations occurred at the site where the company is building a $21 million elementary school for the county school system.
Schools Superintendent Ron Duerring told the Charleston Gazette that the fine will be deducted from Carpenter Reclamation's payment.
