Under 28 CFR 50.7, notice is hereby given that on November 6, 2009, two proposed and related Consent Decrees in United States v. Carlyle Manufacturing Co., Inc., et al., No. 3:09-1784, and United States v. Timothy Fidgeon as Trustee of the WALC Liquidating Trust, No. 3:09-1780, were lodged with the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut.

The proposed Consent Decrees resolve claims of the United States, on behalf of the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”), under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (“CERCLA”), 42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq., in connection with the Solvents Recovery Service of New England, Inc.

The proposed Consent Decree in U.S. v. Timothy Fidgeon as Trustee of the WALC Liquidating Trust requires the sole settlor to pay $907,000.
