Start Preamble

Notice is hereby given that on October 19, 2000, a proposed Partial Consent Decree in United States v. American Scrap Company, et al., Civil Action No. 1:99-CV-2047, was lodged with the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.

In this action the United States seeks the reimbursement of response costs in connection with the Jack's Creek/Sitkin Smelting Superfund Site in Mifflin County, Pennsylvania (“the Site”), pursuant to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (“CERCLA”), 42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq. The Partial Consent Decree resolves the United States' claims against Industrial Steel & Pipe Supply Company, J. Sepenuk & Sons, Inc., and Kingsport Iron & Metal Co., Inc. for response costs incurred as a result of the release or threatened release of hazardous substances at the Site. These parties will pay the United States $140,000.00. The Partial Consent Decree will not resolve the United States' claims against the remaining defendants in the litigation.

The Department of Justice will receive for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of this publication comments relating to the Partial Consent Decree. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General of the Environmental and Natural Resources Division, Department of Justice, P.O. Box 7611, Washington, DC 20044, and should refer to United States v. American Scrap Company, et al., D.J. Ref. 90-11-2-911/1.
