MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia University has agreed to pay a $24,769 fine to resolve hazardous waste violations.

The fine is part of a proposed consent order issued by the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection. The order says the violations were discovered during an inspection of a WVU Engineering facility on the Evansdale campus in August 2014.

Violations included failure to keep a hazardous waste container closed, failure to properly label a container of waste and failure to properly respond to a spill of used oil.

The consent order requires WVU to submit a corrective plan.

Department of Environmental Protection spokesman Tom Aluise tells The Dominion Post (https://bit.ly/18He6il ) that the proposed settlement’s terms could change following a public comment period that ends Feb. 28.
