BALTIMORE (AP) The Maryland Department of the Environment says it is seeking $1.2 million in fines for violations including stormwater violations at a Baltimore sugar plant and lead paint violations at Baltimore properties.

The largest fines totaled $296,000 for lead paint violations at 22 Baltimore properties owned by various companies controlled by Arnon Magal of Brooklyn, N.Y.

The department said Friday it was also seeking $200,000 for unauthorized clearing of a 1.8 acre nontidal wetland in Montgomery County, and $100,000 from American Sugar Refining for stormwater violations at the Domino Sugar plant in Baltimore.

Telephone calls seeking comment from American Sugar and Magal were not immediately returned.
