City of Indianapolis, Civ. No. 1:06–cv– 1456, was lodged with the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana. In the original action, the United States sought civil penalties and injunctive relief for alleged violations of Sections 301 and 402 of the Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. 1319 and 1342, in connection with the City’s operation of its municipal wastewater and sewer system. In December 2006, the Court entered a Consent Decree which requires the City, among other things, to implement a Long Term Control Plan (‘‘LTCP’’) to reduce Combined Sewer Overflows (‘‘CSO’’). CSO Control Measure 16, as set forth in the Table 7– 5 of Section 7 of the 2006 Consent Decree, requires the City to construct a shallow interceptor sewer having a total capacity of 24 million gallons. However, all of the Parties to the 2006 Consent Decree, have agreed that CSO Control Measure 16 should be modified to require the City to undertake construction of a conveyance and storage tunnel that would be constructed approximately 200 feet below ground. The modified project would provide for the construction of a storage and transport facility of approximately 18 feet in diameter, having a minimum storage volume of 54 million gallons, along a new alignment which would minimize environmental, right-of-way, and other issues that were discovered during the design of the original project. The modified project will provide for capture of additional overflow volumes from CSO 008 approximately three and one-half years earlier than currently outlined in the 2006 Consent Decree. The Department of Justice will receive, for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of this publication, comments relating to the Consent Decree. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural Resources Division, and either e-mailed to PO 00000 Frm 00090 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 pubcomment-ees.enrd@usdoj.gov or mailed to P.O.

The proposed ‘‘First Amendment to 2006 Consent Decree’’ may be examined at the Office of the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana, 10 West Market St., Suite 2100, Indianapolis, IN 46204 (contact Asst. U.S. Attorney Thomas Kieper (317–226– 6333)), and at U.S. EPA Region 5, 7th Floor Records Center, 77 West Jackson Blvd., Chicago, Illinois 60604 (contact Assoc. Regional Counsel Gary Prichard (312–886–0570)). During the public comment period, the Consent Decree may also be examined on the following Department of Justice Web site: http:// www.usdoj.gov/enrd/ Consent_Decrees.html. A copy of the Consent Decree may also be obtained by mail from the Consent Decree Library, P.O. Box 7611, U.S. Department of Justice, Washington, DC 20044–7611 or by faxing or e-mailing a request to Tonia Fleetwood (tonia.fleetwood@usdoj.gov), fax no.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In 1996, the Commission established EDIS to 
store and provide access to docket records in agency proceedings. In 
2003, the Commission implemented a document management system (EDIS-II, 
http://edis.usitc.gov) with the capability to accept documents 
electronically. The Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure 
currently provide for the filing of certain documents in electronic 
form.
    Since 2003, EDIS technologies have become outdated and the hardware 
is beyond its useful life. The Commission has developed and is ready to 
implement a new EDIS system in order to improve its technical 
performance. The newly re-engineered system, known as EDIS3, will 
become operational on March 30, 2009.
    In order to switch from the existing EDIS to EDIS3, the Commission 
must turn the system off for approximately 84 hours to accommodate data 
migration, system testing, and related tasks. As a result, EDIS will 
not be available from 6 p.m. Thursday, March 26, 2009, until 6 a.m. 
Monday, March 30, 2009.
    Section 335 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1335) authorizes 
the Commission to adopt such reasonable procedures, rules, and 
regulations as it deems necessary to carry out its functions and 
duties. The Commission is temporarily suspending its filing procedures 
for the period of system unavailability, specifically prohibiting 
electronic filing and access to electronic viewing of documents during 
the period when EDIS is not available. All paper filings will be 
accepted in accordance with applicable rules. However, no EDIS Cover 
Sheets will be available because they cannot be generated by EDIS. A 
temporary Docket Cover Sheet is available on the Commission Web site as 
a fillable .pdf form at the following location: http://www.usitc.gov/
docketservices/temporary_edis_cover.pdf . In order to comply with the 
requirements of Commission rule 201.8 (19 CFR 201.8), a person filing a 
document with the Commission while EDIS is shut down, must submit with 
the filing a valid Docket Cover Sheet prepared using this temporary 
form.

    By order of the Commission.
