      $1.4 Million Environmental Settlement With MBTA Brings Clean Air and
      Water Benefits to Boston
      Settlement Stems from Bus Idling and Water Pollution Violations

      Contact: Peyton Fleming, EPA Press Office, (617) 918-1008
      Contact: Samantha Martin, US Attorney's Office (617-748-3139)

      For Immediate Release: March 10, 2004; Release # 04-03-04

      http://www.epa.gov/ne/pr/2004/mar/040304.html

      ---------------------------------------------------------------
      Some highlights:

      The settlement stems from a federal enforcement action against the
      MBTA for numerous air and water violations, including excessive idling
      of dozens of diesel buses in 2002, unpermitted discharges for many
      years into the Mystic River and other Boston-area rivers, and failure
      to develop oil spill control plans at multiple Boston-area facilities.

      Under the settlement, the MBTA will pay a fine of $328,274 and
      undertake two environmental projects, including a $1 million project
      to reduce pollution from commuter trains at South Station and donating
      a one-acre parcel on the Somerville/Charlestown line so a commuter
      bike path can be extended to Sullivan Square. In addition, the
      settlement requires MBTA to prevent future environmental violations by
      implementing a formal Environmental Management System (EMS) for all of
      its operations.

        It was fun.

        Catherine and her husband get the credit for making the two coordinated
        EPA settlements happen, and for pushing the envelope by proposing a path
        as part of the settlement.
