LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - Axiall has agreed to pay a $54,000 civil penalty to the state Department of Environmental Quality for violations stemming from a 3-year-old incident when the company was still PPG. Axiall has 30 days to pay the penalty.

The American Press reports (https://bit.ly/1eOXZNb ) the incident occurred in January 2011 when PPG officials neglected to test three roll-off containers of hazardous waste for their toxic levels prior to delivering them to Chemical Waste Management in Carylss for land disposal.

DEQ permits and oversees all of Louisiana’s hazardous waste sites.
