Notice is hereby given that on July 1, 2010, a proposed Consent Decree in the United States v. CSX Transportation, Inc., Civil Action No. 2:10-cv-418-FtM-29SPC, was lodged with the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Ft. Myers Division.

In this action the United States sought judgment against defendant in favor of the United State for all previously un-reimbursed costs incurred by the United States in response to the release or threatened release of hazardous substances at Nocatee Hull Creosote Superfund Site (the “Site”). The Site is comprised of three separate areas: A 38 acre former creosote wood treatment “Plant Area” located on the west side of Hull Avenue, a 35 acre portion of the adjacent “Peace River Flood Plain Area” to the west, and a 63 acre rural residential “Oak Creek Area” on the east side of Hull Avenue in Hull, Desoto County, FL.

Under the terms of the Consent Decree, CSX will undertake the remedial action selected by the United States Environmental Agency for the Site. Further, the terms of the Consent Decree require CSX to reimburse the United States for past costs, all future oversight costs, plus interest, incurred or to be incurred in the future by the government in connection with the remedial action at the Site.
