Start Preamble

Notice is hereby given that the comment period on the proposed Consent Decree in United States of America et al. v. The Boeing Company, Civil Action No. 10-758 (W.D. Wa.), will be extended by sixty (60) days. Notice of the proposed Consent Decree was originally published on May 11, 2010. 75 FR 26,275. The original comment period therefore closed on June 10, 2010.

Following publication of the original Notice, the Department of Justice received requests from several Start Printed Page 34156interested parties asking that the comment period be extended for sixty (60) days. The requests noted that the proposed Consent Decree is the first proposed settlement of claims for resource damages caused by hazardous substances released from facilities along the Duwamish Waterway. The letters noted the complexity of the subject matter and stated that the original thirty (30) day comment period was not sufficient to adequately evaluate the proposed Consent Decree.

The natural resource trustees who are parties to the Proposed Consent decree have decided to allow the full 60-day extension of the comment period that was requested. Therefore, the Department of Justice will receive written comments relating to the proposed Consent Decree for an additional sixty (60) days after the original comment period, until and including August 9, 2010. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural Resources Division, and either e-mailed to pubcomment-ees.enrd@usdoj.gov or mailed to P.O.
