MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation has acknowledged that sewage systems were improperly monitored at two Vermont state parks in 2014.

The department agreed to a $5,000 penalty and better record-keeping under a settlement with the Vermont Attorney General’s Office.

The office says investigators found three permit violations at Button Bay State Park in Ferrisburgh in May and August 2014 and at Lake Carmi State Park in Enosburg Falls in September 2014.

The permit violations were related to a failure to inspect equipment or report the potential presence of fecal coliform bacteria.

The state found no evidence that the violations impacted public health.
