(A)   Violation of local program. Whenever the Program Administrator has reasonable cause to believe that any person is violating or threatening to violate any ordinance, rule, regulation or order adopted or issued by the town, or any term, condition, or provision of an approved plan, it may, either before or after the institution of any other action or proceeding authorized by this chapter, institute a civil action in the name of the town, for injunctive relief to restrain the violation or threatened violation. The action shall be brought in the Johnston County Superior Court.
   (B)   Abatement of violation. Upon determination by a court that an alleged violation is occurring or is threatened, the court shall enter any order or judgment that is necessary to abate the violation, to ensure that restoration is performed, or to prevent the threatened violation. The institution of an action for injunctive relief under this section shall not relieve any party to the proceedings from any civil or criminal penalty prescribed for violations of this chapter.
