SUMMARY:

In accordance with the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (“CERCLA”), as amended, notice is hereby given that a proposed administrative settlement agreement for recovery of past response costs (“Proposed Agreement”) associated with Operable Unit Two of the Sharon Steel Corporation (Farrell Works Disposal Area) Superfund Site, Mercer County, Pennsylvania, 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.
