Illinois Attorney Gen. Lisa Madigan's office announced the settlement Friday of the lawsuit her office filed after the August Eighth incident.

Last month, the driver of the bus pleaded guilty to charges of reckless conduct and discharging contaminates to cause water pollution when he emptied the septic tank.

Stefan Wohl was sentenced to 18 months probation and 150 hours of community service.

As part of the settlement, the band must also keep a written log of where and when it dumps waste from its buses until April of 2010.
