Norfolk Southern to pay $15M for East Palestine, Ohio, train derailment

In addition to the civil penalty, Norfolk Southern agreed to pay $235 million in past and future cleanup costs – on top of what they’ve already paid for cleanup – and set up a $25 million health care fund to pay for 20 years of medical exams in the community. (Stock photo)

The federal government agreed to a $15 million fine for Norfolk Southern over last year’s disastrous derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, and the railroad promised to pay more than $500 million to complete the efforts to improve safety that it announced after the crash and address community health concerns.
Residents who had to evacuate their homes after the derailment were generally underwhelmed by the deal the Environmental Protection Agency and Justice Department announced in late May that doesn’t include any criminal charges.
