SUMMARY:

In accordance with the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation, and Liability Act, as amended (“CERCLA”), 42 U.S.C. 9601, et. seq., notice is hereby given of a proposed Agreement and Covenant Not to Sue (“Agreement”) between the United States, on behalf of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”), and L.C. Canyon Partners, LLC (“Settling Respondent”). Under the Proposed Agreement, Settling Respondent agrees to pay past costs, oversight costs, and to conduct a removal action defined in the enforcement action memorandum consisting primarily of the development of remediated portions of the property being purchased by Settling Respondent into single-family home sites. In addition, Settling Respondent agrees to provide access to representatives of EPA and the State of Utah. In exchange for this consideration, EPA will grant Settling Respondent a covenant not to sue for existing contamination. Additionally, Settling Respondent will be entitled to contribution protection for “matters addressed” in the Agreement.

For thirty (30) days following the date of publication of this notice, EPA will receive written comments relating to the Agreement. EPA will consider all comments received and may modify or withdraw its consent to the Agreement if comments received disclose facts or considerations that indicate that the Agreement is inappropriate, improper, or inadequate. The proposed Agreement, as well as EPA's response to any comments received will be available for public inspection in the administrative record held at the Superfund Record Center, 999 18th Street, Suite 300, Denver, CO. During the public comment period, the Agreement (without exhibits) may also be examined on the following Department of Justice Web site, http://www.usdoj.gov/​enrd/​open.html.
