On May 3, 2018, the Department of Justice lodged a Consent Decree with defendant Buckingham County Board of Supervisors on behalf of Buckingham County, a political sub-division of the Commonwealth of Virginia (“Buckingham County”) in the United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia. The Consent Decree resolves a claim under Section 107 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (“CERCLA”), 42 U.S.C. 9607, for past and future response costs incurred in connection with the release of hazardous substances at the Buckingham County Landfill Superfund Site (“Site”), located in Dillwyn, Buckingham County, Virginia. The Complaint filed concurrently with the Consent Decree alleges that Buckingham County, who is the current owner of the Site, is liable for all costs of removal or remedial action incurred by the United States Government. The proposed Consent Decree obligates Buckingham County to reimburse $125,000 of the United States' past response costs.
