Start Preamble

Pursuant to Section 122(d)(2) of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. 9622(d)(2), notice is hereby given that on June 28, 2011, two proposed Consent Decrees in United States v. Atlantic Land and Improvement Co. et al., Civil Action No. 8:11-cv-01435-EAK-EAJ, were lodged with the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida.

In this action the United States sought to require the Defendants, Atlantic Land and Improvement Co. (“ALI”) and Stephen J. Cook and Patricia J. Cook (“the Cooks”), to conduct remedial design and remedial action to address releases and threatened releases of hazardous substances at the Raleigh Street Dump Superfund Site (“Site”) in Tampa, Hillsborough County, Florida. The United States also sought to recover past and future costs incurred and to be incurred by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) during the performance of response actions at the Site.

Under the Consent Decree with ALI, ALI will perform the remedial design and remedial action at the Site. The remedy provides for excavation of approximately 12,000 cubic yards of contaminated soils and sediments, replacement with clean fill to pre-removal grade, monitored natural attenuation of contaminated groundwater, and restoration of on-site wetlands impacted during removal of contaminated soils/sediments. ALI will also excavate an additional approximately 2,000 cubic yards of soil and place approximately 4,400 square feet of concrete slab under existing buildings at the Site. ALI will also reimburse the Hazardous Substance Superfund in the amount of $175,000 for EPA's future response costs at the Site.

Under the Consent Decree with the Cooks, the Cooks will record a notice to successors-in-title and deed restrictions on the portion of the Site owned by them; ensure that materials and land use at the Site do not interfere with the remedial action; and reimburse the Hazardous Substance Superfund in the amount of $20,000.
