LUKE — The owner of the shuttered Luke paper mill agreed Thursday to pay $650,000 to clean up toxic pollutants that have been seeping into the North Branch of the Potomac River.

To resolve a pair of federal lawsuits over the pollution, Verso Corp. and Verso Luke LLC signed a consent decree with the Potomac Riverkeeper Network, which was represented by the Environmental Integrity Project and the Maryland Department of the Environment.
