Notice is hereby given that on July 2, 2003, a proposed Consent Decree in United States v. Eagle Construction Inc., Civil Action No. 03-620, was lodged with the United States District Court for the District of Delaware.

In this action the United States sought recovery under Section 107 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (“CERCLA”), 42 U.S.C. 9607, of response costs incurred by the United States with respect to the release of hazardous substances at the East 7th Street Drum Site in Wilmington, New Castle County, Delaware. The Consent Decree requires Settling Defendant Eagle Construction to pay $10,000 to the United States, based on Eagle's limited ability to pay.
