It's official: CSO consent decree is signed
The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District's combined sewer overflow long-term control plan (CSO LTCP) consent decree was approved by the US District Court on June 30 and filed on the Court's docket today. The terms of the consent decree are now legally binding on the District. Known as Project Clean Lake, the 25-year consent decree outlines $3 billion of investments that will reduce the amount of pollution entering our Great Lake.
