Polluting paper mill in Allegany County must pay Maryland $650K, commit to cleanup, settlement says

April 2, 2021

A paper mill in Allegany County that regulators say is polluting the North Branch of the Potomac River will be required to pay more than $650,000 in fines after reaching a settlement with the state, officials said Thursday. The settlement also sets a number of requirements for Luke Mill, a now-defunct paper plant straddling Maryland’s border with West Virginia. Namely, it must lay out for state regulators how it plans to put a stop to the pollution — and get their approval.
