This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
In accordance with Departmental Policy, 28 CFR 50.7, notice is hereby given that a proposed consent decree in United States v. Dyer, Civil Action No. 00CV11013 (D. Mass.), was lodged with the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts on May 23, 2000. This notice corrects an inadvertent error in the notice published on June 9, 2000 at 65 FR 36716. That Notice omitted the phrase, “three thousand dollars ($3,000) at the three year anniversary of the date of entry.” This proposed Consent Decree concerns a complaint filed by the United States against Bruce S. Dyer and the Holly Farms Nominee Trust, pursuant to section 301(a) of the Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. 1311(a), to obtain injunctive relief from, and impose civil penalties against the Defendants for the discharge of pollutants into the waters of the United States at portions of an approximately 107 acre parcel of land located at 36 Holly Lane in Bridgewater, Massachusetts where a cranberry farm now exists.
The proposed Consent Decree prohibits the discharge of pollutants into waters of the United States without authorization by the United States Department of the Army Corps of Engineers and requires Defendants, at their own expense and at the direction of EPA, to restore and/or mitigate the damages caused by their unlawful activities. This proposed Consent Decree further requires Defendants to pay civil penalties to the United States as follows: two thousand dollars ($2,000) within thirty (30) days of the date of entry of this Consent Decree; three thousand dollars ($3,000) at the one year anniversary of the date of entry; three thousand dollars ($3,000) at the two year anniversary of the date of entry; three thousand dollars ($3,000) at the three year anniversary of the date of entry; and four thousand dollars ($4,000) at the four year anniversary of the date of entry.
The Department of Justice will accept written comments relating to this proposed Consent Decree for thirty (30) days from the date of publication of this corrected notice. Please address comments to Jon M. Lipshultz, Environment and Natural Resources Division, Environmental Defense Section, U.S. Department of Justice, P.O. Box 23986, Washington, DC 20026-3986 and refer to United States v. Dyer, DJ # 90-5-1-1-05400/1.
The proposed Consent Decree may be examined at the Clerk's Office, United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, 2300 United States Courthouse, One Courthouse Way, Boston, MA 02210-3002.Start Signature
