Notice is hereby given that on September 29, 2015, a proposed consent decree in United States v. Wyeth Holdings LLC, Civil Action No. 3:15-cv-07153-AET, was lodged with the United States Court for the District of New Jersey. In this action brought pursuant to Sections 106, 107, and 113(g)(2) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, 42 U.S.C. 9606, 9607 and 9613(g)(2) (“CERCLA”), the United States seeks injunctive relief requiring Wyeth Holdings LLC to undertake certain environmental response actions at the American Cyanamid Superfund Site located in Bridgewater, New Jersey. The United States also seeks to recover costs incurred and to be incurred by the United States in response to releases or threatened releases of hazardous substances at or from the Site.

The settlement requires Wyeth Holdings LLC to perform the remedies selected by the Environmental Protection Agency in the Records of Decision for Operable Unit 2, involving revegetation, and Operable Unit 4, involving the remediation of almost all site-wide soils, groundwater, and six waste disposal impoundments.
