On February 26, 2014, the Department of Justice lodged a proposed consent decree between the United States and Boulos Family Properties, LLC; National Petroleum Packers Incorporated; National Petroleum Packers, Inc.; National Petroleum Packers of North Carolina, Inc.; Mr. Chehade Boulos; and 2.99 acres of land in Stallings, North Carolina with the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina, Charlotte Division, in a case entitled United States v. Boulos Family Properties, LLC, et al., No. 2:14-cv-059.

The proposed consent decree resolves claims for response costs under section 107 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, as amended, (“CERCLA”), 42 U.S.C. 9607, against the defendants in connection with the National Petroleum Packers Site, a former glycol reprocessing facility in Stallings, North Carolina. Under the proposed consent decree, the Site (2.99 acres of land in Stallings, North Carolina) will be sold, and the net proceeds will be divided between the Environmental Protection Agency and Mr. Boulos, depending on the amount of the proceeds.
