VERNAL, Utah (AP) -- Colorado Interstate Gas Company has agreed to install environmental controls and pay more than $1 million to resolve violations of the Clean Air Act.
The Justice Department and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced the settlement Thursday.
CIG will pay more than $1 million in a civil penalty and back fees. The company will also pay for two air monitoring stations for a year on the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation near Vernal.
According to a complaint, Colorado Interstate Gas failed to obtain a permit and control and test emissions sources at the compressor station on the reservation.
The settlement is subject to a 30-day comment period and approval by a federal court.
