Start Preamble

On June 5, 2013, the Department of Justice lodged a proposed Third Amendment to 2006 Consent Decree with the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana in the lawsuit entitled United States and State of Indiana v. City of Indianapolis, Indiana, Civil Action No. 1:06-cv-01456.

On December 19, 2006, the District Court had approved and entered a Consent Decree among the United States, the State of Indiana, and the City of Indianapolis, Indiana, which resolved various alleged violations of the Clean Water Act. The Consent Decree obligated the City of Indianapolis to implement certain combined sewer overflow control measures in accordance with a Long Term Control Plan. Subsequent Consent Decree Amendments refined these obligations. In 2011, the City's wastewater system was sold to CWA Authority, Inc., an Indiana nonprofit corporation. The proposed Third Amendment to 2006 Consent Decree extends the City's obligations under the Consent Decree to CWA Authority.

City of Indianapolis, Indiana, D.J. Ref. No. 90-5-1-1-07292. All comments must be submitted no later than 30 days after the publication date of this notice.
