Airport project shut down for environmental violations

Ken Ward Jr. of the Charleston Gazette filed a Freedom of Information Act request to obtain records on two logging contractors shut down for repeated environmental violations. Department of Environmental Protection records "showed that the agency cited Yeager [airport contractors] last month for two violations of its stormwater control permit on the slide repair work." The 170-acre airport project includes about 55 acres of clear-cutting.
