Canadian Coal Firm Fined $1.4 Million For Water Pollution Affecting Montana

Montana water quality researchers praised a $1.4 million fine levied against Canadian mining firm Teck Resources Ltd. for polluting rivers that cross the international border. The case stems from a 2014 incident at Teck’s Line Creek coal mine about 80 miles north of Eureka in the Elk River drainage. The mine’s water treatment facility was cited for three releases of contaminated water that killed bull and cutthroat trout in Line Creek.
