Bayer CropScience LP, Civil Action No. 2:15– cv–13331. The United States filed this lawsuit under the Clean Air Act. The United States’ complaint alleges that Bayer CropScience violated section 112(r) of the Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7412(r), which addresses the prevention of accidental releases. The claims arise out of a 2008 explosion at the Methomyl production unit at Bayer CropScience’s plant in Institute, West Virginia. The original consent decree, which was entered by the court on August 9, 2016, required the defendant, Bayer CropScience LP, to pay a civil penalty of $975,000, to perform injunctive relief to reduce the likelihood of future accidents at the Institute Plant and several other chemical processing plants, and to perform supplemental environmental projects valued collectively at $4.23 million. The proposed modification replaces one of the supplemental environmental projects, which entailed expanding a wastewater sump, with another project that entails purchasing emergency response equipment. As a result, the total cost of the supplemental environmental projects will decrease to $3.05 million.

Notice of Lodging of Proposed Second Modification to Consent 
Decree Under The Clean Air Act

    On August 31, 2017, the Department of Justice lodged a proposed 
second modification to consent decree with the United States District 
Court for the Southern District of West Virginia in the lawsuit 
entitled United States v. Bayer CropScience LP, Civil Action No. 2:15-
cv-13331.
    The United States filed this lawsuit under the Clean Air Act. The 
United States' complaint alleges that Bayer CropScience violated 
section 112(r) of the Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7412(r), which addresses 
the prevention of accidental releases. The claims arise out of a 2008 
explosion at the Methomyl production unit at Bayer CropScience's plant 
in Institute, West Virginia. The original consent decree, which was 
entered by the court on August 9, 2016, required the defendant, Bayer 
CropScience LP, to pay a civil penalty of $975,000, to perform 
injunctive relief to reduce the likelihood of future accidents at the 
Institute Plant and several other chemical processing plants, and to 
perform supplemental environmental projects valued collectively at 
$4.23 million. The proposed modification replaces one of the 
supplemental environmental projects, which entailed expanding a 
wastewater sump, with another project that entails purchasing emergency 
response equipment. As a result, the total cost of the supplemental 
environmental projects will decrease to $3.05 million.

the proposed second modification to consent decree. Comments should be
