Notice of Lodging of Stipulated Agreement and Order Pursuant to the Clean Water Act In accordance with Departmental policy, 28 CFR 50.7, notice is hereby given that a proposed Stipulated Agreement and Order in United States v. District of Columbia, Civil Action No. 96-669, was lodged on April 5, 1996 with the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. The proposed Stipulated Agreement and Order resolves the claims brought in a Complaint filed the same day under the Clean Water Act (``Act'') against the District of Columbia, which owns and operates the Blue Plains Wastewater Treatment Works facility in Washington, D.C. The proposed Stipulated Agreement and Order requires the District of Columbia to conduct construction and maintenance projects at the Blue Plains facility which satisfy the claims in the Complaint alleging violations of the Operation and Maintenance provision of the District's National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit.

Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General for the Environment and Natural Resources Division, Department of Justice, Washington, DC 20530, and should refer to United States v. District of Columbia, DOJ Ref. 90-5-1- 1-3598A.
