Notice is hereby given that on February 7, 2002, a proposed partial consent decree (“consent decree”) in United States v. Chrysler Corp., et al., Civil Action No. 5:97CV00894, was lodged with the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.
In this action the United States sought recovery, under Sections 107(a) and 113 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (“CERCLA”), 42 U.S.C. 9607(a) and 9613, of response costs incurred in connection with the Krejci Dump Site in Summit County, Ohio (“Site”). The consent decree resolves claims under Sections 106 and 107 of CERCLA against Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company (“3M”), which is alleged to be liable as a result of having arranged for the disposal of hazardous substances at the Site.
