BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Fourteen industrial companies must pay the state a $3,000 fine for failing several times to send in stormwater reports.

On the list are Hunnicutt’s Incorporated in Bellingham and Tri-County Truss Incorporated in Burlington.

Sandy Howard with the state Department of Ecology says companies must self-report what pollutants are in their stormwater.

 

Ecology hopes the fine sends a strong message to the companies.
