Rhode Island Quarry Resolves Allegations

Both the current and former owner of a quarry property on White Rock Road in Westerley, R.I., have agreed to terms intended to resolve allegations by a state agency of wetlands regulation violations, according to the Westerly Sun.

Cherenzia Excavation Inc. of Westerly and Strategic Commercial Realty Inc., an offshoot of Rawson Materials of Putnam, Conn., signed the consent agreement in April to resolve a notice of violation issued to the companies by the state Department of Environmental Management. The agreement does not constitute admission of the factual and legal allegations in the notice of violation, according to terms of the agreement.

As part of the consent agreement, the two companies have agreed to pay either an administrative penalty of $17,200 or complete a supplemental environmental project that is equivalent in value to the penalty amount.
