The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has fined a local renewable fuels refiner $9,559 for violations of the federal Safe Drinking Water Act after the company operated a broken injection well, used it later to dispose of wastewater without permission and failed to properly monitor the facility.

Torrance-based Global Clean Energy Holdings Inc., doing business locally as Bakersfield Renewables LLC, agreed to pay the amount in a settlement dated Tuesday. The order calls for the company to plug and abandon a separate well on the refinery property, which is located at 6451 Rosedale Highway and was formerly known as Big West.
