Special Metals' alloy plant in Huntington is facing $254,000 in city fines for alleged sewer and industrial waste discharge violations.

Some of the allegation violations date back to 1999.

The Huntington Sanitary Board proposed the fine. The Herald-Dispatch reports that the board's staff and Mayor Steve Williams are scheduled to meet with plant officials this week to discuss the alleged violations.

The proposed fines include $200,000 for failing to address nine unspecified violations between 2003 and February 2013, and for failing to address problems in a facility at the plant.

A spokesman for Special Metals' parent, Precision Castparts Corp., didn't immediately return a telephone message Tuesday morning.
