Pending before the Court is the parties' Joint Motion for Stay of Litigation. ECF No. 47. The parties have informed the Court that Defendant has agreed to a consent decree and the Government is now seeking the proper approvals from the Department of Justice and the Environmental Protection Agency. The Government expects the approvals and the subsequent thirty-day public comment period to take 90 to 120 days. Upon approval of the consent decree by the Government and after the public comment period, the parties shall submit the proposed consent decree to the Court for final approval. Should the parties require more than 120 days to complete this process, they should inform the Court promptly and file the proper motion to extend the stay.

Accordingly, the Motion to Stay is GRANTED. The case shall be STAYED for no more than 120 days so that the parties may complete the approval and public comment process.

The Court DIRECTS the Clerk to send a copy of this Opinion and Order to counsel of record and any unrepresented parties.
