South Carolina County Fined For Stormwater Pollution

Regulators have fined Richland County more than $800,000 for failing to keep sediment, pesticides and trash out of lakes and creeks in the fast-growing county.

The county started a storm-water management program six years ago, but didn’t set up systems to prevent and monitor pollution, said officials with the state Department of Health and Environmental Control.
