More than two years after the United States District Court and Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) reached an agreement on the MWRD’s long-term control plan, Judge George M. Marovich has approved and entered the consent decree.
Originally filed in Dec. 2011, there were two groups of intervenors that opposed the entry of the proposed consent decree. Two of the issues raised by these groups were the length of the Tunnel and Reservoir Plan (TARP) construction schedule and the amount of green infrastructure included in the decree.
