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

    Notice is hereby given that on November 28, 2011, a proposed 
Modification to Consent Decree (``Modification'') in United States v. 
Bacardi Corporation, Civil Action No. 3:08-cv-1825 was lodged with the 
United States District Court for the District of Puerto Rico.
    The Consent Decree requires Bacardi Corporation (``Bacardi'') to 
address violations of the Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. 1251 et seq., at 
its rum production facility in Cata[ntilde]o, Puerto Rico 
(``Facility'') by, among other things, developing and implementing a 
plan of action to address exceedances of effluent limitations for 
certain bacterial pollutants (``Regulated Bacteria'') and to comply 
with interim effluent limitations for those pollutants. The proposed 
Modification provides new, more stringent interim effluent limitations 
for Regulated Bacteria and requires Bacardi to develop and implement a 
new plan of action to bring discharges into compliance with the final 
effluent limitations for Regulated Bacteria set forth in the Facility's 
National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit PR0000591.
