Border Cantos is a timely, new and free exhibit now on view at Crystal Bridges.
The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has proposed almost $7,000 in a civil penalty and fine of Little Rock Air Force Base for a fish killed caused by a May 11 spill of 6,000 gallons of a 50-50 mixture of propylene glycol and water that ran into a storm drain and then into a tributary of Jacks Bayou.
The discharge killed more than 3,000 fish, 200 mussels and a snake.
The base didn't report the spill, but a citizen reported it to the state Game and Fish Commission. The base has worked with the state since the spill on the cleanup. The state has written a proposed consent decree on the violation. The base has until Aug. 1 to respond.
Here's a draft of the consent order. And here's a letter to the air base. The proposed consent order provides that the base will outline procedures to report, contain and deal with future spills. The order sets a civil penalty of $4,800 and fine of $2,172.
