The proposed Consent Decree concerns a complaint filed by the United States of America against Gaston Barrett and Central Mississippi Properties, Inc., pursuant to sections 309(b) and (d) of the Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. 1319(b) & (d), to obtain injunctive relief and civil penalties against the defendants for the unauthorized discharge of pollutants in Neshoba County, Mississippi, in violation of sections 301(a), 309(d), and 404 of the Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. 1311(a), 1319(d), and 1344.
