Notice is hereby given that on May 4, 2006, a proposed Consent Decree in United States v. Browning-Ferris, Inc., et al., Civil Action No. 06-1134, was lodged with the United States District Court for the District of Maryland.

The proposed consent decree in United States v. Browning-Ferris, Inc., et al., resolves the claims of the United States and Maryland under sections 106 and 107 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (“CERCLA”), 42 U.S.C. 9606 and 9607, at the Kane and Lombard Site, located in Baltimore, Maryland (the “Site”). This consent decree obligates four defendants to perform the remedy that EPA selected for the second operable unit at the Site. Also included in the decree are fourteen parties that are contributing financially to the clean-up through payments to the defendants, but who will not be performing the work nor directly reimbursing the Federal or state past response costs. EPA estimates that the work to be performed pursuant to this consent decree will be approximately $7,345,000.
