Notice is hereby given that on May 31, 2012, two proposed consent decrees in U.S. v. Jacob Goldberg & Son, Inc., et al., Civil Action No. 10 Civ. 3237, were lodged with the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.

In this action the United States sought recovery, pursuant to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (“CERCLA”), 42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq., of response costs regarding the Port Refinery Superfund Site in the Village of Rye Brook, N.Y. (“Site”). One of the settlements, referred to as the “Second Partial Consent Decree,” provides for PSC Metals, Inc. and PSC Metals-New York, LLC to pay $225,000, and resolves the United States' claims against these defendants regarding the Site. The other settlement, referred to as the “Third Partial Consent Decree,” provides for Vincent A. Pace Scrap Metals, Inc. to pay $20,000 and also resolves the United States' claims against this defendant regarding the Site.

The Department of Justice will receive for a period of 30 days from the date of this publication comments relating to the two consent decrees. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural Resources Division, and either emailed to pubcomment-ees.enrd@usdoj.gov or mailed to P.O.
