The proposed Bankruptcy Settlement Agreement would resolve the United States' claims under section 107 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, 42 U.S.C. 9607, as amended, against the debtor related to response costs incurred by the Environmental Protection Agency in connection with the release of hazardous substances at the Omega Chemical Superfund Site (“Site”) in Whittier, California.
