Start Preamble

Notice is hereby given that on July 14, 2010, a proposed Consent Decree in the case of United States v. Blue Tee Corp., Civil Action No. 06-05128-DW, with Defendant Blue Tee Corp. was lodged with the United States District Court for the Western District of Missouri.

The United States filed a complaint in December 2006 alleging that Blue Tee Corp. is liable pursuant to Sections 106 and 107 of CERCLA in connection with the Granby Subdistrict of the Newton County Mine Tailings Superfund Site in Missouri. The Court entered a Consent Decree between the United States and Blue Tee Corp. in February 2007 that required Blue Tee Corp. to pay past response costs of $198,645.11 to EPA and perform a drinking water removal action for the entire Granby Subdistrict. Blue Tee Corp. paid the past costs and has been performing the removal action. This proposed Consent Decree requires Blue Tee Corp. to pay $600,000 to EPA instead of performing the removal action for the Evergreen Park Subdivision portion of the Granby Subdistrict. Blue Tee Corp. is required to continue the removal action for the rest of the Granby Subdistrict. The 2007 Consent Decree will be terminated upon entry of the proposed Consent Decree.

For thirty (30) days after the date of this publication, the Department of Justice will receive comments relating to the Consent Decree.
