The City of Chicago, Illinois Department of Transportation, and U.S. EPA incurred response costs in containing and addressing the impact of the spill. U.S. EPA’s emergency response contractors decontaminated the impacted portion of the highway with pressure washers, and sent the rinse water into a bulk liquids trailer for offsite disposal. Impacted soil from along the berm west of the highway, burned debris and other solid waste associated with the incident was drummed up and removed. U.S. EPA response personnel also performed air monitoring and conducted other sampling activities; U.S. EPA also incurred response costs relating to its responsible party search, negotiations and other enforcement costs. As of March 31, 2005, U.S. EPA’s response and enforcement costs for the Site were $190,422.03. The Settling Parties Gustavo and Guadalupe Martinez individually, and d/b/a Menchaca Transport Express (now a defunct entity); and Biddle Sawyer Corporation, the shipper and owner of the hazardous substances at the time of the incident, are jointly and severally liable for the proposed payment under the terms of the Agreement. Miken Cartage, Inc. a transporter which had contracted with Biddle Sawyer Corporation and the driver of the truck owned by Menchaca, is recalcitrant and is not participating in the Agreement. Subject to U.S. EPA’s reservations of rights, any response costs which would not be recovered under the terms of the Agreement would be forgiven as against the Settling Parties. ADDRESSES: The proposed settlement is available for public inspection at the PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 following location: Records Center, U.S. EPA, Region 5, 7th Floor, 77 W.
