BANGOR - A federal judge has concluded that a Connecticut-based owner of the former Bangor Gas Works is responsible for 60 percent of the cost of cleaning up the coal-tar deposit in the Penobscot River along the city's waterfront redevelopment area.

U.S. District Judge George Singal assigned 40 percent of the responsibility for the pollution in Dunnett's Cove to the city of Bangor.
