KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A military management company will pay a $24,900 civil penalty for improperly disposing of raw sewage at Fort Riley.

The Environmental Protection Agency said Friday that Picerne Military Management will pay the fine to settle violations of federal clean water laws.

The EPA says Picerne pumped between 5,000 to 9,000 gallons of raw sewage from a crawl space under a townhome into a storm drain. Over two days in December 2011, the sewage went through the drainage system and discharged into a tributary of the Republican River.

Picerne Military Management owns and/or operates about 20,000 housing units on seven Army posts, including Fort Riley.

A public comment period is required before the consent agreement becomes final.
