Start Preamble

Notice is hereby given that on December 15, 2008, a proposed Consent Decree in United States v. Ascension Holding Company, LLC, et al. Civil Action No. 3:08-cv-00815-JVP-SCR, was lodged with the United States District Court for the Middle District of Louisiana.

In this action, the United States sought injunctive relief and response costs under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, Sections 106 and 107(a), 42 U.S.C. 9606 and 9607, in connection with the release or threatened release of hazardous substances from the Dutchtown Oil Treatment Facility Superfund Site located in Dutchtown, Ascension Parish, Louisiana. The proposed Consent Decree would require settling defendants to reimburse the United States for $935,000 in past and future clean up costs at this Site, and would otherwise resolve their liability for allegations set forth in the underlying Complaint.
