DEERFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Pan Am Railways has agreed to pay $152,000 to settle allegations that it violated the federal environmental laws at rail yards in western Massachusetts and Maine.

The EPA announced the agreement Tuesday. The agency says the Billerica-based railroad company violated conditions of a permit related to storm water management at its Deerfield, Massachusetts, rail yard.

The settlement also covers violations at Pan Am’s Waterville, Maine, facility from this past winter.
