In accordance with the requirements of section 122(h)(1) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, as amended (“CERCLA”), 42 U.S.C. 9622(h)(1), notice is hereby given of the proposed administrative settlement under section 122(h) of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. 9622(h), concerning the Service First Barrel and Drum site, between EPA and Redwood Development, LLC (“Settling Party”). The Service First Barrel and Drum Site is located at 1066 South Redwood Road, in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah (the “Site”). The settlement, embodied in the proposed Administrative Order on Consent for Removal Action, EPA Docket No. CERCLA-8-2002-01 (“AOC”), is designed to resolve the Settling Party's liability at the Site through work to be performed and a covenant not to sue for all response costs incurred and to be incurred by EPA in connection with removal activities at the Site.

The proposed AOC will settle Settling Party's liability under section 107(a)(1) of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. 9607(a)(1). Under the terms of the proposed AOC, the Settling Party agrees to conduct a cleanup of the contamination on the Settling Party's property. In exchange, the Settling Party will settle its liability for all response costs incurred at the Site in connection with removal activities and will receive contribution protection from other parties associated with the Site.
