The Consent Decree requires Settling Defendants to undertake the remedial action selected by the United States Environmental Protection Agency for the Site and to reimburse the United States for all of the government's past cost and future oversight cost incurred or to be incurred, plus interest, in connection with the remedial action at the Site.
