Ind. Gov't. - "EPA Letter of Rejection to the City of Evansville" [Updated]

From the Evansville City-County Observer, a link to:

... the rejection letter from the EPA to the City of Evansville’s watered down plan to control combined sewer overflows and the City’s response letter dated today [Friday, June 20], the last day to respond to the EPA notice.

The rejection letter is 7-pages long and contains section after section of technical descriptions about why Evansville’s proposal was rejected. Only at the end is the “ability to pay” addressed. Reading the body of the letter it becomes clear that the EPA rejected the plan over their assessment of the efficacy of the proposed solution and that the “ability to pay” argument was secondary.

[Updated 6/24/14] Here is a June 23 report from Inside Indiana Business.
