Notice is hereby given that on July 30, 2008, a proposed consent decree in United States v. Morrison Enterprises, LLC, and Cooperative Producers, Inc., Civil Action No. 8:08-00332-JFB-TDT, was lodged with the United States District Court for the District of Nebraska.

In this action, the United States sought an order requiring defendants to perform the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) selected environmental remedy and to reimburse the United States for costs incurred and to be incurred, in response to releases and threatened releases of hazardous substances into the environment at and from the FAR-MAR-CO Subsite of the Hastings Ground Water Contamination Site in Hastings, Nebraska.
