CONWAY -- American Transportation Corp. has agreed to pay a $75,000 civil penalty and follow hazardous waste regulations, an order released Monday says. The state Department of Pollution Control and Ecology issued the order. An investigation last year into possible hazardous waste contamination at the company, also known as AmTran, helped delay for several months one of Conway's most needed road projects.

The PC&E investigation disclosed that AmTran, which manufactures school buses, violated 21 provisions of the Arkansas Hazardous Waste Management Act.
