WEST WARWICK, R.I. (AP) — The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management has accused a company owned by a state representative of dumping telephone poles, glass and other items on a freshwater wetland.

WPRI-TV reports the department cited 4 N Properties for three alleged freshwater wetland and solid waste violations on its property in West Warwick.

The notice says 4 N did not get permission to alter the wetland, and the case is being "strongly considered for additional enforcement."

State Rep. Jared Nunes, whose family owns 4 N, says a notice from the DEM doesn't mean the company did anything wrong.

The department says the company has to remove all the material, cover the area with soil and fill it with wildlife conservation seed mixture by Oct. 31.
