Louisiana will be getting a big payment from a Port Allen refinery.

Placid Refining Company will be paying the state $675,000 after the DEQ found the company in violation of some environmental regulations.

The company is also going to pay $225,000 toward a beneficial environmental project to reduce emissions at the facility by about 30 tons per year.

DEQ officials say it will make a noticeable difference in air quality.
