E.I. Du Pont de Nemours and Company, et al. Civil Action No. 1:03CV29 (and related case E.I. Du Pont de Nemours and Company v. United States, Civil Action No. 1:02CV177) was lodged with the United States District Court for Northern District of West Virginia. In the United States v. DuPont, et al. action, the United States seeks the recovery of response costs incurred in connection with Ordinance Works Disposal Areas Superfund Site, located in Morgantown, West Virginia (Site ID number WV000850404). The United States’ original complaint, filed in 2003, named only DuPont as a defendant; an amended complaint that was filed simultaneously with the proposed consent decree, adds as defendants EPEC Polymers, Inc., General Electric Company, Olin Corporation, and VerDate Aug<31>2005 13:52 Sep 28, 2005 Jkt 205001 Rockwell Automation. In the Amended Complaint the United States alleges that each defendant owned and/or operated the Site at the time of disposal or treatment, and/or arranged for the disposal and/or treatment of wastes containing hazardous substances at the Site, within the meaning of 42 U.S.C. 9607(a). Under the proposed consent decree EPEC Polymers, Olin Corp. and Rockwell Automation (the defendants who performed the remedial action at the Site, or the ‘‘Performing Defendants’’) will reimburse to EPA past response costs paid at the Site in the amount of $1,532,174.65, plus interest. Further, under the proposed Consent Decree, the United States, on behalf of the United States Army and other federal departments and agencies, shall: (1) Reimburse to EPA past response costs in the amount of $1,760,700.17; and (2) reimburse the Performing Defendants their past response costs in the amount of $2,420,082.80 plus interest. Additionally, under the proposed consent decree the United States, on behalf of the Settling Federal Agencies, has committed to paying EPA and the State of West Virginia 53.47% of their future response costs, and the Performing Defendants have committed to paying EPA and the State of West Virginia 46.53% of their future response costs. Because the United States, pursuant to a judicial decision, is required to indemnify DuPont for costs it incurred in connection with the Ordnance Works Site, DuPont will not be making a payment under this Decree. The Department of Justice will receive for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of this publication comments relating to this Consent Decree in United States v. DuPont, et al. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural Resources Division, P.O.
