City of Ironton Clean Water Act Settlement

On March 17, 2009, the United States District Court entered the Consent Decree that resolves the federal government's claims under the Clean Water Act. The Consent Decree requires the City of Ironton to pay a total civil penalty of $98,000, divided equally between the United States and the State of Ohio. The City has also agreed to separate its combined storm water and sanitary sewers by the end of 2026. While constructing the separate sewer system, the City will continue to implement the Nine Minimum Controls in the remaining combined sewer areas. The City will also implement a plan to reduce infiltration and inflow of clear water into the City's sanitary sewers.
