Under 28 CFR 50.7, notice is hereby given that on July 29, 2004, a proposed Consent Decree in United States v. Mallinckrodt, Inc. et al., Civil Action No. 4:02CV1488 was lodged with the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri.

In this action the United States sought response costs relating to response actions by the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) at the Great Lakes Container Corporation Superfund Site in St. Louis, Missouri. The Site is a former drum reclamation facility contaminated primarily with lead and polychlorinated biphenyls (“PCBs”). The settling defendant, Indopco, Inc., f/k/a National Starch and Chemical Corporation (“National Starch”), sent drums to the facility and thereby contributed small or unknown amounts of lead to the Site. In the proposed consent decree, the settling defendant has agreed to reimburse EPA $45,713.12 in past response costs. In return, the United States covenants not to sue National Starch for its liability related to lead contamination at the Site.
