BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WECT) - A company in Bladen County will have to pay a fine for violating the federal Clean Water Act, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
Camp Clearwater Enterprises, Inc. was fined $38,000 for illegally filling wetlands on its property in White Lake. The wetlands are adjacent to Colly Creek, which is a tributary of the Black River in Bladen County.
Between March 2009 and May 2010, Camp Clearwater representatives illegally discharged fill material into about 3/4 of an acre of wetlands while clearing a site for commercial development, according to the EPA. The company did not have the required CWA Section 404 permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers before starting the work.
