Start Preamble

Pursuant to section 122(d) of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. 9622(d), and 28 CFR 50.7 notice is hereby given that on August 2, 2004, a proposed Consent Decree in United States v. Izzo Group, Inc., and Pasco Izzo, Sr., Civ. No. 1:04-CV-11689 (GAO), was lodged with the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts.1

In this action the United States, on behalf of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”), seeks cost recovery with respect to the Cohen Property Superfund Site (“Site”), located in the City of Taunton, Massachusetts, pursuant to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act against Izzo Group, Inc., and Pasco Izzo, Sr. (the “Settling Parties”). Under the terms of the proposed settlement, the Settling Parties will pay $100,000, plus interest, to reimburse the United States for costs incurred by EPA at the site. This settlement amount is based on the Settling Parties' limited ability to pay the full amount of EPA's unreimbursed response costs. The proposed settlement also provides for payment of approximately $2 million by the United States, on behalf of the United States Department of Defense, in reimbursement of EPA's response costs incurred at the Site.
