Under 28 CFR 50.7, notice is hereby given that on August 4, 2004, a proposed Settlement Agreement in In re BII Liquidation, Inc., (f/k/a Burlington Industries, Inc.) No. 01-11282 (RJN) (jointly administered) was lodged with the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.

In this action, the United States sought the recovery of responses costs associated with four sites; the Carolina Steel Drum Site, York County, South Carolina; the Industrial Pollution Control Superfund Site (“IPC” site) Hinds County Mississippi; the J Street Site, Harnett County, North Carolina, and the FCX Statesville Site, Iredell County, North Carolina (Operable Unit 1). The Settlement Agreement provides that the claims of the United States Environmental Protection Agency for response costs at those sites will be treated as general unsecured claims in the following amounts: At the IPC site—$5,000; at the J Street Site—$160,038.50 and the FCX Statesville Site, Operable Unit 1—$665,381.32. The claims of the United States at the Carolina Drum Site are withdrawn. With respect to the IPC, J Street Site, and FCX Statesville Site claims, the United States waives and releases any other environmental claims it might have at these sites except for, among others, natural resource damage claims.
