Agreement on alleged clean-air violations
(2008-04-15)
(WOUB) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says it has reached an agreement with American Energy Corporation on alleged clean-air violations at the company's coal preparation plant at Beallsville in Monroe County.

The agreement includes a $40,000 penalty...and resolves allegations that American failed to comply with testing, notification and reporting requirements at the plant.

The E-P-A was concerned that people were being subjected to high concentrations of coal dust, something that can cause health problems.
