In accordance with section 122(h) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (“CERCLA”), notice is hereby given that a proposed administrative settlement agreement for recovery of past response costs (“Proposed Agreement”) associated with the Browning Lumber Company Superfund Site, Boone County, West Virginia was executed by the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) and is now subject to public comment, after which EPA may modify or withdraw its consent if comments received disclose facts or considerations that indicate that the Proposed Agreement is inappropriate, improper, or inadequate. The Proposed Agreement would resolve potential EPA claims under Section 107(a) of CERCLA, against Stephen C. Browning (“Settling Party”). The Proposed Agreement would require Settling Party to reimburse EPA $23,000.00 for past response costs incurred by EPA for the Site.
