In accordance with Departmental policy, 28 CFR 50.7, notice is hereby given that a proposed and agreed upon Amendment to Consent Decree Entered on May 18, 1995 in United States v. Scovill, Inc., Civil Action No. 3:95CV159, was lodged with the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia on June 6 2002.

The original Consent Decree involved the settlement of claims brought by the United States, pursuant to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). It sought recovery of costs and injunctive relief for the Arrowhead Plating Superfund Site located in Montross, Westmoreland County, Virginia. The proposed and agreed upon Amendment would modify the Consent Decree by: (1) Conforming the groundwater remedy provisions of the 1995 Consent Decree to the requirements of the 2001 Record of Decision Amendment which replaced the pump and treat system selected as the remedy in the original ROD with a Permeable Reactive Subsurface Barrier (“PRSB”) and surface cap; (2) including an agreement where Saltire Industrial, Inc. (successor to Scovill, Inc.) agrees to undertake certain unanticipated work at the Site in exchange for a credit against future oversight costs incurred by the EPA; and (3) updating the representatives of the parties designated Start Printed Page 44879to receive formal notices and submissions under the Consent Decree.
