In accordance with section 122(h) of CERCLA, notification is hereby given of a proposed administrative settlement with Joyce and David Major, the owners of a property within the Asbestos Dump Site. David Major arranged for the disposal of asbestos waste on his property. This settlement, in which the Majors will pay EPA $5000 toward its unreimbursed costs at the Site, is based on the Majors' demonstrated limited ability to pay the full amount of the unreimbursed costs.
