BENWOOD, W.Va. (AP) - State regulators have cited Murray Energy Corp. for a spill at a subsidiary’s coal preparation plant in Benwood.

Media outlets report that sediment and liquid spilled into the Ohio River on Saturday from Ohio County Coal Co.’s plant. The Department of Environmental Protection cited Murray for failing to maintain discharge controls.

DEP spokeswoman Kelley Gillenwater says the spill didn’t appear to have any effect on aquatic life.

Murray spokesman Gary Broadbent says the company has remedied the incident.
