City of West Haven, Connecticut, Civil Action No. 3:13–cv– 01883–JCH. In the Complaint the United States, on behalf of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), alleges that the defendant City of West Haven (‘‘West Haven’’) violated the Clean Water Act (‘‘CWA’’), 33 U.S.C. 1251, et seq., and applicable regulations relating to West Haven’s unauthorized discharges from the waste water collection system owned and operated by the City.

The Consent Decree requires West Haven to pay a civil penalty of $125,000 in three installments, with interest, divided between the United States and the State of Connecticut, and to undertake various measures to study and correct the problems causing the SSOs in order to achieve compliance with the CWA and applicable regulations.
