In this action, the United States is seeking injunctive relief and response costs pursuant to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (“CERCLA”), 42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq., in connection with the North Penn Area Six Superfund Site (“Site”), which consists of a number of separate parcels of property within and adjacent to the Borough of Lansdale, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
