WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) - Dominion Transmission has agreed to pay $55,470 in administrative penalties to resolve water pollution violations in West Virginia.

The penalties are part of a consent order issued by the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection. A 30-day public comment period on the consent order ends Dec. 18.

According to the order, the violations included slips in pipeline work areas in 2012 and 2013 that caused sediment deposits in several waterways in Marshall County.

Dominion spokesman Frank Mack tells The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register (https://bit.ly/1IzDqEP ) that the company is committed to being fully compliant with all regulations. He says the company didn’t meet its own expectations in certain situations where restored slopes failed.

Dominion Transmission is Richmond, Va.-based Dominion Resources’ interstate gas transmission and storage subsidiary.
