Start Preamble

Notice is hereby given that on May 17, 2010, a proposed consent decree in United States v. Tanana Oil Corp., et al., Civil Action No. 05-2540, was lodged with the United States District Court for the District of Maryland.

In this action the United States asked the court to order Tri-Angle Holding Company to clean up petroleum products that the United States alleges leaked from underground storage tanks owned or operated by the defendants at Tanana Oil Station #409, formerly located at 7526 North Point Road, Edgemere, Maryland. The United States also sought civil penalties from the defendants for violating regulations regarding underground storage tanks and for failing to comply with an administrative order requiring defendants to clean up the leaked petroleum products. The United States obtained default judgment on April 16, 2006, ordering Tri-Angle Holding Company to clean up the petroleum contamination and ordering the defendants to pay $760,000 in civil penalties. If approved, the consent decree would replace the default judgment and would require two individuals, not previously named as defendants in this matter, to perform the cleanup work in accordance with a corrective action plan attached to the consent decree and to pay a civil penalty of $69,000 in two installments.

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