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 March 18, 2010, the United States lodged a proposed Consent Decree in United States v. All Metals Processing Company, et al., Case No. 09-06363 JFW (Sept. 1, 2009, C.D. Cal.). On September 1, 2009, the United States filed a complaint against All Metals Processing Company, the Estate of Helen L. Powers (“Estate”), and Barbara C. Harker, in her capacity as personal representative of the Estate, under CERCLA Section 107(a), 42 U.S.C. 9607(a), seeking recovery of past response costs and for future costs incurred by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) in connection with the release or threatened release of hazardous substances at 264 W. Spazier Avenue in Burbank, Los Angeles County, California (the “Property”).
The proposed Consent Decree resolves the claims in the Complaint against the Estate and Barbara C. Harker, in her capacity as personal representative of the Estate. Under the terms of the Consent Decree, the Estate has agreed to sell the Property.

In addition, the Estate will transfer to the United States all proceeds recovered under the Estate's insurance policies covering the Property. In return, the Estate and Barbara C. Harker, in her representative capacity, will receive a covenant not to sue from the United States with respect to past and future response costs at the Property under Section 107(a) of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. 9607(a).
