Consistent with Section 122(d) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, as amended (“CERCLA”), 42 U.S.C. 9622(d), and 28 CFR 50.7, notice is hereby given that on September 24, 2007, a proposed Partial Consent Decree with Ferguson Harbour Incorporated in United States v. Ferguson Harbour Service Inc, et al., No. 3:03-CV-1266 (S.D. Miss.), was lodged with the United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi.

In this action, the United States seeks to recover from various defendants, pursuant to Section 107 of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. 9607, the costs incurred and to be incurred by the United States in responding to the release and/or threatened release of hazardous substances at and from the Industrial Pollution Control Site in Jackson, Hinds County, Mississippi. Under the proposed Consent Decree, Defendant Ferguson Harbour Incorporated will pay $10,000 to the Hazardous Substances Superfund in reimbursement of the costs incurred by the United States at the Site. The amount of the proposed settlement is based upon financial information provided by Ferguson Harbour Incorporated indicating a limited ability to pay.
