BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) - Two upstate New York men have been sentenced for dumping concrete waste into the Susquehanna River while demolishing a parking garage in Binghamton six years ago.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Mark Pullyblank of Caledonia and William Clements of Victor, both 54, were sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Binghamton for violating the Clean Water Act.

Prosecutors say the two men were working as project managers for Spencerport-based Crane-Hogan Structural Systems, which was contracted to tear down the parking garage at the Binghamton Governmental Center. Officials say in December 2008 and January 2009, the company discharged large quantities of concrete and concrete slurry into the river.

Both men pleaded guilty to the charges in September.

They were sentenced to probation and fined a total of $12,000. The company was ordered to pay a fine of $500,000.
