WOODS CROSS, Utah (AP) -- Federal officials say a Davis County refinery has been ordered to pay $120,000 in civil penalties for violating the Clean Air Act.

Holly Refinery, bordering Woods Cross and West Bountiful, has also agreed to spend more than $17 million in new and upgraded pollution controls at its Woods Cross plant.

The settlement is expected to reduce air pollution by more than 420 tons of emissions annually.

Despite agreeing to the settlement, refinery managers contend the refinery did not violate Environmental Protection Agency standards.
