Notice is hereby given that on October 13, 2006, a proposed Consent Decree (“Decree”) in United States v. L.A.D. General Contractors, et al., Civil Action No. 06-4560 was lodged with the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

In this action the United States sought from defendants Andrew DiDio III, Laura Ann DiDio and LAD General Contractors, Inc. (a corporation owned and operated by the DiDio's) recovery of $1.16 million in response costs incurred by EPA at the Andela and River Bend Superfund Sites in Warwick Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Defendants previously performed certain cleanup actions under EPA's direction. In this settlement, defendants will pay $100 to defray part of EPA's past costs. The amount of the settlement is based on defendants' very limited ability to pay. They receive from the United States a covenant not to sue under Sections 106 and 107(a) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act with respect to the Site.

The Department of justice will receive for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of this publication comments relating to the Decree.
