LENEXA, Kan. (Legal Newsline) – Majestic C Team LLC, which owns and operates the Majestic Pointe residential construction site in Omaha, Nebraska, has agreed to pay $10,750 and perform a Supplemental Environmental Project (SEP) for $42,500 after allegations of violating the Clean Water Act, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced.

The EPA alleged that Majestic C Team LLC broke the terms of its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) stormwater permit, which mandates that significant controls be in place to reduce stormwater runoff and prevent stormwater from coming into contact with pollutants. According to the EPA, Majestic C Team LLC failed to operate and maintain best management practices at its site, which led to significant amounts of sediment leading out of the site.

The SEP that Majestic C team LLC will conduct includes the construction of a water quality swale next to the existing water basin, which will help control and reduce stormwater leaving the site and discharging into a stormwater retention basin.

This settlement will now be subject to a 40-day public comment period before becoming finalized.

The EPA’s Clean Water Act exists to protect the United States’ streams and wetlands, which form the basis of the country’s water resources.
