BATH – Bath Iron Works says it will pay $355,000 to settle a claim that the company allegedly failed to submit Toxic Release Inventory reports to the Environmental Protection Agency.

The EPA alleged the shipyard also failed to comply with all the requirements in its storm water permit. The EPA said Tuesday that the settlement will resolve all alleged violations of the Clean Water Act, including claims of failing to submit TRI reports for various heavy metals and chemicals.

The complaint alleged BIW failed to fully comply with permits that are meant to minimize waste from the process of shipbuilding, including the risk of metal runoff into the Kennebec River.
