Start Preamble

Notice is hereby given that on May 23, 2008, a proposed Consent Decree in United States v. Kaman Aerospace Corporation, Civil Action No. 08-00794, was lodged with the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut.

In this action, the United States sought recovery of past and future response costs incurred by the United States Navy in connection with the Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant in Bloomfield, Connecticut (“Facility”). The Consent Decree resolves the potential liability of both the United States, which owned the Facility, and Kaman Aerospace Corporation (“Kaman”), a government contractor that operated the Facility, for all response costs incurred or to be incurred in connection with the Facility. In return for transferring the Facility to Kaman, Kaman will complete the remaining environmental remediation of the Facility. In addition, each party releases the other from liability for all response costs.

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.
