JAY, Vt. (AP) - Jay Peak resort has agreed to a settlement with the state to improve water quality after sediment from construction projects flowed into streams.

Vermont Public Radio reports (https://bit.ly/1wLJMhE) the settlement came after the resort applied for new stormwater discharge permits. The Vermont Natural Resources Council appealed, saying the permits were inadequate to protect streams already harmed by resort development.

The settlement, approved by the Vermont Superior Court Environmental Division, requires additional remediation projects to offset the sediment flow.

Walter Elander, Jay Peak’s director of mountain planning and development, said clean water is the result and that no one comes out of the agreement as the loser.
