The Birmingham Herald reports:
Indictments against a former Environmental Protection Agency administrator and a former Alabama Environmental Management commissioner were made public Wednesday.
Region 4 administrator of the EPA Trey Glenn, who resigned the position Nov. 18, was indicted on 20 counts of wrongdoing. Six of the charges against Glenn – using his position for personal gain – are felonies.
Glenn co-owned a company called Southeast Engineering and Consulting that worked with law firm Balch & Bingham and its client, Drummond Company, to fight the EPA efforts to test and clean up soil in north Birmingham neighborhoods and in the city of Tarrant from 2014 through 2017, records show.
