Pursuant to the Clean Water Act and the categorical pretreatment standards contained at 40 CFR 414.55 and 414.111, notice is hereby given that a proposed consent decree embodying a settlement in United States v. Georgia-Pacific Resins, Inc., CIV-S-00-2531 GEB-PAN (E.D. Cal.), was lodged on November 16, 2000, with the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California.

Specifically, Georgia-Pacific discharged zinc and toluene in excess of the categorical pretreatment standards from its thermosetting resin manufacturing facility located at Elk Grove, California, to the Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District's Treatment Plant.

Under the proposed consent decree, the settling party will pay a $165,000 penalty and perform a supplemental environmental project which will result in Georgia-Pacific reducing the amount of hazardous solids generated in the resin manufacturing process.
