The AP reports a drilling company will pay nearly $100,000 in fines, for polluting a western Pennsylvania  trout stream.

A Marcellus drilling company has agreed to pay $93,710 to settle claims by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission that it polluted a high quality trout stream in Clearfield County.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says Houston-based EOG Resources, Inc., will also pay $65,000 toward a yet-to-be-determined environmental project in the watershed of the Little Laurel Run creek in Clearfield County near Parker Dam State Park.
The settlement is the fourth involving the company and the Fish Commission this year, and the second involving alleged pollution of the Little Laurel Run stream. EOG has paid more than $302,000 to settle those allegations.
