The federal government says Sentara Norfolk General Hospital has agreed to pay a $19,920 penalty to settle allegations that it violated hazardous waste regulations.
The Environmental Protection Agency announced the settlement Tuesday. The EPA cited the hospital for violating a federal law governing the proper treatment, storage and disposal of hazardous waste.
According to the agency, an inspection by federal and state environmental officials determined that Sentara failed to properly label and date containers of chemical waste. Sentara neither admitted nor denied liability.
