CORINTH, Miss. (WCBI) – A Corinth company is forced to pay a hefty fine for failing to conduct environmental testing.
Timber Products Company paid a $47,000 fine for failing to test for emissions from a saw and a sander for the last four years. The Springfield Oregon based company agreed to pay the fine in October to the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality.

$3,000 of the fine will go back to the company to implement a environmental management system.
