EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says it has settled with a Connecticut-based company over allegations it violated record-keeping rules at its New Hampshire plant.

The EPA said Wednesday that BWE Inc., which stores and distributes petroleum products and other flammable liquids, has agreed to pay $82,200 over claims it failed to file timely chemical inventory reports at its Manchester, New Hampshire, facility.

BWE President Stephen Eldred said Windward Petroleum, which was purchased by BWE, did not account for all reporting requirements. He said BWE corrected the errors.

The case follows an inspection by EPA New England at the company’s West Rutland, Vermont, facility in May 2012 and investigations of reporting compliance elsewhere.

EPA says the company failed to report hazardous chemicals at the Manchester facility by annual deadlines in 2012 and 2013.
