The Norfolk Southern Railway Co. has reportedly agreed to pay a $4 million civil penalty to resolve alleged violations of the Clean Water Act and CERCLA for a 2005 chlorine spill in Graniteville, South Carolina. The alleged CWA violations include the discharge of tons of chlorine, a hazardous substance, from a derailed train tank car and thousands of gallons of diesel fuel from ruptured locomotive engine fuel tanks. The settlement also resolves an alleged CERCLA violation for failure to immediately notify the National Response Center about the chlorine release. The consent decree was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina on March 8, 2010, and is subject to a 30-day public comment period and approval by the court.
