The settlement, announced by the U.S. Justice Department and the Environmental Protection Agency, covers 278 building sites, 22 of them in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Among the citations against Ryland were releasing polluted storm water without a permit, and failure to develop and follow plans for controlling runoff.
