      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.

        Bryce Nesbitt and Janet Kovner get the credit for proposing, helping to
        develop, and supporting the Mystic bikepath element of the settlement.

        $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.
