CHICAGO — Federal authorities announced the filing in court late last week of a $4.7 billion settlement agreement in their lawsuit against the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District.

The district reached a preliminary agreement in June with the U.S. Justice Department, the Environmental Protection Agency and environmental groups. Based on that plan, MSD submitted a proposal to its rate-setting commission to allow it to ask voters for authority to issue $945 million of bonds in coming years to fund capital projects.
