Beckley, W.Va. (AP) -- A developer has agreed to pay a civil penalty of more than $500,000 to settle a federal pollution case involving housing developments in West Virginia, Missouri and Arkansas.

Federal officials said Thursday that Cooper Land Development Inc. also agreed to implement a storm water compliance program at its construction sites.

A civil complaint filed last year by the Environmental Protection Agency alleged that cooper violated the clean water act at five housing developments in the three states, including Glade Springs Village in Daniels.

The complaint claimed the Rogers, Ark.-based developer failed to properly control storm water runoff during construction of the projects.

The consent decree was filed in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Mo.
