SCARBOROUGH, Maine (AP) - The owners of a campground on Scarborough’s Pine Point reached an agreement with two federal agencies to settle violations stemming from decades of filling in wetlands on their property.

The Portland Press Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2dcJuJO ) Bayley’s Camping Resort will restore more than 64 acres of wetlands and pay a civil penalty of $227,500.

The federal Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Justice announced the settlement on Wednesday.

The EPA alleged that the owners of the campground and their corporate entities violated the Clean Water Act by filling in wetlands at their properties in Scarborough and Old Orchard Beach.

Federal officials say the practice began in the late 1980s and continued through the first half of this decade.

Thomas, Fred and Kathleen Bayley couldn’t be reached for comment.
