Start Preamble

Notice is hereby given that on September 13, 2007, a proposed Consent Decree in United States of America v. Darcars of New Carrollton, Inc., Civil Action No. 2:07-cv-1235 was lodged with the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania.

In this action the United States sought to recover response costs from the defendant incurred by the United States in responding to releases or threatened releases of hazardous substances at or from the Breslube Penn Superfund Site (the “Site”) which is located in Moon Township, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. The proposed Consent Decree resolves the liability of Darcars of New Carrollton, Inc. (“Darcars”), under Section 107(a)(3) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), 42 U.S.C. 9607(a)(3). Based on the amount of waste Darcars contributed to the Site, and EPA's volumetric ranking of waste at the Site, Darcars will pay $2,720.83 to resolve its liability. Darcars had timely expressed an intention to participate in the Third Round De Minimus Consent Decree entered by the Court on May 5, 2006, but was inadvertently excluded from that settlement.

The Department of Justice will receive for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of this publication comments relating to the Consent Decree. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural Resources Division, and either e-mailed to pubcomment-ees.enrd@usdoj.gov or mailed to P.O.
