CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A Charles Town company and state regulators have agreed to resolve pollution violations at construction sites in Hardy and Jefferson counties.

Under a proposed settlement, Commercial Associates Inc. will pay an $11,570 fine and submit a plan of corrective action to the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection.

The Herald-Mail (https://bit.ly/1CuOtwi ) of Hagerstown, Maryland, reports that the DEP announced the proposed settlement on Monday.

Public comments on the settlement will be accepted through Feb. 27.

The DEP says in a consent order that Commercial Associates operated two construction sites near Charles Town and in Moorefield without stormwater permits in 2014. The company also allowed muddy water to leave the site near Charles Town.

Commercial Associates paid past-due permit fees for 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2013 in August 2014.
