On September 1, 2015, the Department of Justice lodged a proposed consent decree with the United States District Court for the District of Maine in the lawsuit entitled United States and State of Maine v. Maine Mack, Inc., et al., Civil No.: 1:15-00358-NT.

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 Hows Corner Superfund Site in Plymouth, Maine (“Site”). The settlement requires two parties to pay $98,409 into a trust account that was established to help fund the cleanup at the Site. The settlement resolves the United States' and the State's claims against these defendants regarding the Site.
