County to pay MDEQ fine for trash in installments
Published: May 8,2013
CORINTH — Alcorn County will pay a civil penalty to the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality for violations at local rubbish site.
The Daily Corinthian reports the board of supervisors agreed to pay $15,000 in two installments.
The Mississippi Commission on Environmental Quality cited the county for failing to prevent disposal of unauthorized waste in the site, failing to maintain disposal area of the rubbish site to as small an area as possible, failing to maintain a trained spotter onsite to visually inspect loads and immediately remove unauthorized waste and failing to notify MDEQ of a June of 2012 fire at the facility.
The county was notified of the violations last July and was found to be in compliance following a subsequent inspection in January.
