Start Preamble

Notice is hereby given that on March 23, 2005, a proposed First Amendment to Consent Decree in United States v. Boise Cascade Corp., et al., Civil Action 7:97-cv-1704 (“Amendment”), was lodged with the United States District Court for the Northern District of New York.

On November 20, 1997, the court entered a Consent Decree regarding the Sealand Restoration Superfund Site in Lisbon, New York (“Site”). The Consent Decree required five Settling Defendants to implement the groundwater remedy that EPA selected in a 1995 Record of Decision (“ROD”) for the Site. In November 2001, EPA issued an Explanation of Significant Differences (“ESD”) which modified the selected groundwater remedy (requiring the construction of a permeable reactive barrier) and provided for implementation of institutional controls and the performance of a supplemental study. The proposed Amendment conforms the Decree to the ESD. In addition, the Amendment calls for a revised threshold above which the Start Printed Page 17469settling defendants will be required to pay for future oversight costs.

The Department of Justice will receive for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of this publication comments relating to the Amendment. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural Resources Division, P.O. Box 7611, U.S. Department of Justice, Washington, DC 20044-7611, and should refer to United States v. Boise Cascade Corp., D.J. Ref. 90-11-3-1144.

During the public comment period, the Consent Decree may also be examined on the following Department of Justice Web site http://www.usdoj.gov/​enrd/​open.html.
