PORTLAND (AP) — The contractor on an ill-fated project to straighten a hazardous section of U.S. 20 has agreed to pay a $735,000 federal penalty to resolve allegations that it allowed muddy water from the work to flow into Coast Range streams.
The Oregonian reported Monday the agreement is between Granite Construction of Watsonville, Calif., and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It has been filed in federal court in Portland.
