BIW failed to submit TRI reports for chromium, copper, manganese and nickel for 2013, 2014 and 2015, the EPA announced Tuesday.
The complaint also alleged BIW failed to fully comply with the requirements of its stormwater permit, which requires the shipyard to minimize the exposure of waste from the shipbuilding process, such as metal shavings and grit from sandblasting operations, so that when it rains, these pollutants do not flow into the Kennebec River.
The BIW settlement also resolves alleged violations of the Clean Water Act.

The EPA alleged violations of the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA), which requires that companies and organizations report their use and release of toxic chemicals.
