USEPA says city and county cannot submit separate Phase II plans.

USEPA states “Defendants [Cincinnati and Hamilton County] shall submit a schedule that is as expeditious as practicable to the United States/State/ORSANCO for addition Final WWIP projects to be constructed (Phase 2),” “Defendants may propose a Phase 2 schedule,”.  In other words the separate submissions by the two defendants do not count as a submission that was due on June 30,  2018 assuming the Court agrees to extending the consent Decree deadline from June 30, 2017 to June 30, 2018.  In other words, the city and county have missed the Consent Decree deadline for submission of the Phase 2 plan(s).  you can read the USEPA letter here OH0105457_HamiltonCounty_Comp_20180717.
