CSX encouraged to work out a settlement in Curtis Bay coal facility explosion

August 17, 2022

The Maryland Department of the Environment is giving CSX the chance to work out a settlement with the state for its role in a December explosion at the coal terminal it operates in Curtis Bay. A letter from the Maryland Office of the Attorney General, sent on behalf of the Maryland Department of the Environment, cited CSX for violating Maryland’s ambient air quality control law and gives the company an opportunity to settle the matter rather than fight it out through litigation. The civil penalties that CSX face from MDE can be as high as $25,000 per day per violation.
