Toll Brothers, one of the nation's largest home-building companies, has agreed to pay $741,000 in penalties for allowing polluted runoff from construction sites in Maryland and 22 other states, the Environmental Protection Agency announced Wednesday. The Pennsylvania-based builder was accused of failing to stabilize disturbed soil or properly install and maintain runoff controls such as silt fences, swales and sediment ponds. Forty of the 370 building sites found in violation by EPA are in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, where officials say storm-water runoff is a significant and growing source of pollution.

Those shopping for a home on a large lot may be drawn to a Toll Brothers-built, six-bedroom estate on a full acre in Ellicott City. "Compared to other luxury properties in the area, it's stunning in every possible detail," said William J. Ganz III of Exit Results Realty, which is listing the property at $1.35 million. "You walk into the home, it's in excellent condition, and it feels like it was just built yesterday. "Furthermore," Ganz said, "if you're buying this style of home now from Toll Brothers at $1.2 million base price, to get it to look like this one, it would probably cost in excess of another $400,000 for the upgrades, and you'd probably have to wait almost a year to get in. " The 5,641-square-foot house, which is advertised as move in-ready and in excellent condition, features $160,000 in exterior landscaping.

Toll Brothers Inc., a national homebuilder with a substantial presence in Maryland, cut its sales estimate yesterday for the coming fiscal year, noting softening of the market, construction backlogs and an expectation of more-moderate home price increases. It was the latest sign that the housing boom has passed its peak, although experts at two regional forums yesterday said Maryland is better protected from a cooling-off than other areas because of its tight housing supply and the expected arrival of tens of thousands of new defense jobs.

NEW YORK - The Metropolitan Opera's radio broadcasts, which have spread the gospel of opera for more than seven decades but were threatened by a lack of financing, have won a temporary reprieve. A home-building company made flush by the housing boom has agreed to sponsor them, the Met said last week. The company, Toll Brothers, is making a rare foray into high-art philanthropy with the hope of adding a classy note to its image. Started in 1931, the Saturday broadcasts have been teetering on the brink of extinction since Chevron-Texaco withdrew its support in 2003, eliciting grief from opera lovers and singers who received their first taste of the art form from them.

U.S. mortgage applications rose for the week ending June 10 by the most since July of last year, powered by a record number of loan requests to buy a home, a private report showed last week. Cheaper borrowing costs this month also boosted refinancing. Home sales "could be a record this year," said Tim Rogers, chief economist at Briefing.com in Boston. "I don't expect a real strong upturn in rates, and I expect that to keep the housing sector booming." The Mortgage Bankers Association's index of mortgage applications jumped to 887 in the week that ended June 10 from 755.5 the previous week.
