[*Note: Fines are often contested and reduced. This does not indicate that this amount was actually collected by the Washington Dept. of Ecology. For example, the Dept. of Ecology ordered the Weyerhaeuser Paper Co., Cosmopolis, to prevent obnoxious odors from its wastewater treatment ponds and to continuously monitor the area for hydrogen sulfide emissions. Ecology rescinded a $79,000 penalty issued to Weyerhaeuser. Source:Dept. of Ecology News Release, 19 September 1991]
