Notice of Lodging of Consent Decree Under the Clean Water Act

    Notice is hereby given that on June 6, 2008, a proposed Consent 
Decree (``CSI Consent Decree'') in United States and State of Colorado 
v. Colorado Structures, Inc., Civil Action No.08-CV-01217-MSK-KMT, was 
lodged with the United States District Court for the District of 
Colorado.
    In this action, the United States and the State of Colorado filed a 
Complaint for injunctive relief and civil penalties pursuant to the 
Clean Water Act (CWA) and the Colorado Water Quality Control Act 
(CWQCA) against Colorado Structures, Inc. (CSI) for violations at 16 
construction sites in Colorado, California, Nevada, and South Dakota, 
including violations of applicable permits and the failure to obtain a 
permit. Specifically, the United States and the State of Colorado filed 
a Complaint pursuant to CWA, 33 U.S.C. 1319(b) and (d), and CWQCA, 
Sec. Sec.  25-8-607 and -608, C.R.S., against CSI for: (1) Violations 
of the conditions of several permits issued pursuant to 33 U.S.C. 1342 
and 25-8-501 to -503, C.R.S., for the discharge of pollutants from 
storm water from construction sites in violation of 33 U.S.C. 1311 and 
25-8-501 to -503, C.R.S; (2) the discharge of pollutants from storm 
water from construction sites without a permit in violation of 33 
U.S.C. 1311 and Sec.  25-8-501(1), C.R.S.; and (3) failing to provide 
information in violation of 33 U.S.C. Sec.  1318 and Sec.  25-8-304(1), 
C.R.S.
    The CSI Consent Decree would resolve the claims against CSI as 
described in the Complaint. The ultimate entry by the District Court of 
Colorado of the CSI Consent Decree would end this litigation.
