On April 16, 2013, the Department of Justice lodged a proposed Consent Decree with the United States District Court for the District of the Virgin Islands in the lawsuit entitled United States v. Government of the Virgin Islands, et al., Civil Action No. 3:10-cv-48.
In this action the United States seeks, among other things, injunctive relief and civil penalties for the failure by Joseph and Zulma Hodge to remove used tires from their property adjacent to the Bovoni Landfill on St. Thomas in compliance with a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency administrative order issued under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. The proposed Consent Decree provides for the Hodges to remove and dispose of off-site used tires remaining on their property and to pay a civil penalty of $100,000.
