Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, Civ. No. 3:07– CV–1056 was lodged on October 24, 2007, with the United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee, Nashville Division. The proposed Consent Decree would resolve certain claims under Sections 301 and 402 of the Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. 1251, et seq., against the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County (‘‘Metro’’), through the performance of injunctive measures, the payment of a civil penalty, and the performance of Supplemental Environmental Projects (‘‘SEPs’’).

To resolve these claims, Metro would perform the injunctive measures as descried in the proposed Consent Decree; would pay a civil penalty of $564,038 ($282,019 to the United States Treasury and $282,019 to the State of Tennessee which will use the money to fund the Cumberland River Compact); and would perform SEPs valued at $2.8 million, which involves the extension of sewer service to areas currently served only by septic systems.
