ANR to pay penalty for lab violations

File File

It's supposed to protect the environment, but now the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources faces it's own an environmental violation.
The Attorney General's office says ANR mishandled a shipment of environmental waste. The hazardous waste was shipped in October 2012, but didn't make it to the waste disposal facility until March of 2013. It will pay a $12,000 penalty and also put $6,000 into a fund that supports lab safety in Vermont schools.

It's not the first time ANR has run afoul of the AG's office.  In 2011 the Agency agreed to pay a hefty fine for another incident of mishandling hazardous materials.
