Notice; request for public comment.
In accordance with Section 122(i) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, as amended by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (“CERCLA”), 42 U.S.C. 9622(i), notice is hereby given of a proposed Agreement for Recovery of Response Costs (“Agreement,” Region 9 Docket No. 9-2006-0016) pursuant to Section 122(h) of CERCLA concerning the Del Amo Superfund Site, Waste Pits Operable Unit (the “Site”), located in Los Angeles, California. The settling parties to the Agreement are Shell Oil Company and the United States General Services Administration.
The Agreement fully compensates EPA for past response costs related to the remedial design of the Waste Pits Operable Unit of the Del Amo Site.

The Agreement provides for a total recovery of $1,208,551.25. The Agreement also provides the settling parties with contribution protection under CERCLA 113(f)(2) for response cost paid under the Agreement.

The Agency's response to any comments will be available for public inspection at the Agency's Region IX offices, located at 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, California 94105.
