Notice of Lodging of Agreed Modification to Consent Decree Under 
the Clean Water Act

    On October 30, 2018, the Department of Justice lodged an Agreed 
Modification to Consent Decree with the United States District Court 
for the Central District of Illinois in the lawsuit entitled United 
States v. City of Rock Island, Illinois, Civil Action No. 4:00-CV-
04076-JBM. The original Consent Decree in this case was approved and 
entered by the Court in 2003 (the ``2003 Consent Decree'').
    The 2003 Consent Decree resolved alleged violations of the Clean 
Water Act associated with untreated discharges from the City of Rock 
Island's municipal wastewater treatment and sewer system. Under the 
2003 Consent Decree, Rock Island committed to make an array of 
engineering improvements to its wastewater treatment plant and sewer 
system, with input and oversight from the U.S. Environmental Protection 
Agency (``EPA''). The Agreed Modification to Consent Decree would 
memorialize agreed deadline extensions for two sewer system improvement 
projects addressing wastewater discharge points designated as Outfall 
006 and Outfall 007. The Outfall 006 project was slated for completion 
in January 2018, but the parties to the 2003 Consent Decree agreed to 
extend that deadline until August 2018. The Outfall 007 project was 
originally scheduled for construction completion in April 2016 and 
operational startup in October 2016, but the parties agreed to extend 
those deadlines until June 2018, and August 2018, respectively. Rock 
Island met the extended deadlines for both projects. EPA has determined 
that the delays at issue were due to circumstances beyond Rock Island's 
control, as described in detail in the Agreed Modification.
    The publication of this notice is intended mainly to inform the 
public of these agreed deadline extensions, but it also opens a period 
for public comment on the Agreed Modification. Comments should be 
addressed to the Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural 
Resources Division, and should refer to United States v. City of Rock 
Island, Illinois, D.J. Ref. No. 90-5-1-1-06489. All comments must be
