MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Wood County frack sand processing facility has been ordered to pay $80,000 for allegedly violating state air pollution control laws.

According to the state's complaint, Completion Industrial Minerals, LLC failed to update its construction permit application to reflect changes that occurred during work at its Marshfield facility. The complaint also accuses the company of continuing construction after the permit expired.

The complaint also alleges violations relating to reporting a dust plan and failing to install an air emission monitor, among other allegations.

The $80,000 is for forfeitures, court costs and surcharges for violations.

Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced the judgment Thursday against the Fort Worth, Texas company.

Messages left at the company's Marshfield and Fort Worth offices were not immediately returned Thursday.
