Commission (``Commission''). A Second Modified Consent Decree 
(``SCMD'') was entered in this action on June 21, 2001, which provided 
for implementation by the Commission of a long-term combined sewer 
overflow (``CSO'') control plan. The Commission completed some of the 
obligations required under the SMCD, but did not complete other 
obligations. In 2014, the Commission completed the Lynn Water and Sewer 
Commission Combined Sewer Overflow Supplemental Facilities Plan Update 
(``2014 CSO Plan''), which recommends alternative CSO abatement 
projects to certain obligations required under the SMCD.
    The Third Modified Consent Decree (``TMCD'') requires the 
Commission to implement the CSO abatement projects recommended in the 
2014 CSO Plan. The TMCD also requires the Commission to implement a 
program to detect and eliminate illicit discharges to the Commission's 
storm sewer system and to implement plans to improve management, 
operation, and maintenance of its sanitary sewage and other facilities. 
The TMCD also requires the Commission to pay a civil penalty of 
$125,000.
