Start Preamble

Notice is hereby given that on July 28, 2010 a proposed Consent Decree (“proposed Decree”) in United States of America v. Ray Crosby, Civil Action No. 2:10-cv-00715-BCW was lodged with the United States District Court for the District of Utah, Central Division.

In this action under Section 107(a) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (“CERCLA”), 42 U.S.C. 9607(a), the United States sought to recover response costs incurred by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) as a result of releases and threatened releases of hazardous substances from the South West Assay Superfund Site (“the Site”), a former ore processing site located approximately one mile west of Leeds, Utah. The proposed Decree requires the defendant to pay $100,000, in two installments of $50,000, to the United States in reimbursement for a portion of EPA's past response costs at the Site. Mr. Crosby owned the Site at the time of the release or threatened release of hazardous substances and he remains the current owner.

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