GLENDALE, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon lumber company is accused of letting wastewater flow into a creek near its mill without a permit.

The Register-Guard reported (https://bit.ly/2pjbW23 ) Wednesday the state has fined the company more than $20,000 for its wastewater discharge.

The state Department of Environmental Quality says the violations occurred for more than six years. The company is accused of allowing hot water and detergent from a wash station to run into Windy Creek.

The company, Swanson Group, says it plans to appeal the fines. The company claims it stopped using the wash station in November.

The company has until May 9 to appeal.
