The Complaint alleges that the City’s discharges, which occur approximately 60 times per year, violate the Clean Water Act, either because the discharges violate limitations and conditions in the City’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit, or because the discharges are from point sources not authorized by the City’s NPDES permit. The Complaint also asserts claims by the State of Indiana for comparable violations of state law. Under the proposed Consent Decree, the City would be required to: (1) Implement injunctive measures to address combined sewer overflows (CSOs) and sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs), at a total cost of approximately $250 million; (2) pay the United States a civil penalty of $269,190; (3) perform a federal Supplemental Environmental Project (SEP) valued at $400,000; and (4) either pay the State of Indiana a civil penalty of $269,190, or pay the State a civil penalty of $26,190 and complete state SEPs costing at least $484,542. Under the proposed Consent Decree, the injunctive relief is to be implemented over an 18-year period and is designed to eliminate SSOs and reduce the number of CSOs to approximately one per year on the St. Joseph River and four per year on the St. Mary’s and Maumee Rivers.
