The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has fined Orange County and a contractor $735,000 for ocean dumping violations, the second-largest such penalty ever levied against a public agency in the country. The violations occurred during a massive two-year dredging operation in Upper Newport Bay when the sludge was taken to sea and dumped at least half a mile from the designated site.

Crews dredging Upper Newport Bay dropped 600,000 cubic yards of silt in the wrong spot off the coast before discovering the error late last month, triggering an investigation by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The misplaced muck was equivalent in volume to 300,000 refrigerators or 60,000 dump-truck loads, EPA officials said Tuesday. "This was a lot of material," said Brian Ross, dredging projects coordinator for the EPA in San Francisco.
