This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Notice is hereby given that on August 21, 2008, a Complaint was filed and a proposed Consent Decree was lodged with the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey in United States of America v. Air Products and Chemicals, Inc., Civil Action No. 2:08-cv-04216.
In this action the United States seeks reimbursement of response costs incurred by EPA for response actions at the Chemsol, Inc. Superfund Site (“Site”) in Piscataway Township, Middlesex County, New Jersey, and performance of studies and response work at the Site consistent with the National Contingency Plan, 40 CFR Part 300, pursuant to Sections 106 and 107 of the Comprehensive Environmental, Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, 42 U.S.C. 9606 and 9607 (“CERCLA”). The Consent Decree provides that the new settlors will financially contribute to and perform work at the Site together with a group of potentially responsible parties that resolved their liability to the United States in 2000 in a Consent Decree. The value of this settlement is estimated at approximately $3.1 million, of which $380.170.83 will be paid to EPA for unreimbursed response costs, and $95,747.14 will be paid to the State of New Jersey for the State's Natural Resource Damages caused by the release of hazardous substances at the Site.
