Club accused of violating sediment control law

March 17, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

The Maryland attorney general's office has accused a Harwood club of working on its property last year without filing a sediment control plan with Anne Arundel County government, the state announced yesterday.

A criminal information was filed Feb. 27 in Anne Arundel Circuit Court against Three Rivers Sportsmen Inc. If convicted, the club could be punished by a fine of up to $5,000. There was no answer at the club's telephone yesterday.

Betty Dixon, a spokeswoman for the county's land-use office, said yesterday that county officials cited the club last year for grading without a permit and filling in a floodplain on its 20-acre property.

The club was told to submit grading plans showing sediment and erosion control work and to seek a grading permit, Dixon said. She said land-use officials have been working with the club on those plans and permits.
