Notice is hereby given that on January 8, 2001, 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 Konica Graphic Imaging, Inc.
