Notice is hereby given that on February 17, 2010, a proposed Consent Decree in United States of America v. ITT Corporation, Civil Action No. 4:10-cv-00053-SPM-WCS, was lodged with the United States District Court for the Northern District of Florida, Tallahassee Division.

In this action, the United States, on behalf of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”), sought injunctive relief and recovery of response costs pursuant to Sections 106 and 107 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), 42 U.S.C. 9606 and 9607, with respect to the ITT Thompson Industries Superfund Site located at 800 Livingston Street (State Road 145), Madison, Florida. ITT Corporation formerly operated a manufacturing facility at the Site, where soil, sediment, and water have been contaminated with hazardous substances such as volatile organic compounds and heavy metals.

The proposed Consent Decree requires ITT Corporation to conduct the remedial action as provided in EPA's Record of Decision, maintain a performance guarantee in the amount of $2.2 million, reimburse EPA $23,308.01 in past response costs, and pay all future response costs. The remedial action consists of disposal of contaminated soil and sediment, bioremediation of contaminated groundwater, institutional controls to limit Site uses until cleanup goals are reached, and five-year reviews of the remedy.

The Department of Justice will receive for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of this publication comments relating to the proposed Consent Decree.
