Summit Equipment & Supplies, Inc., et al., Civil Action No. 5:90CV1704, was lodged with the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, Eastern Division. In this action, the United States sought to recover response costs incurred by the United States at or in connection with the Summit Equipment & Supplies, Inc. Superfund Site (the ‘‘Site’’) in Akron, Ohio, against alleged generators of hazardous waste disposed of at the Site, pursuant to Sections 107 and 113 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (‘‘CERCLA’’), 42 U.S.C. 9607, 9613. The United States sought to recover response costs incurred at or in connection with the Site on behalf of the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (‘‘EPA’’) and the United States Defense Logistics Agency (‘‘DLA’’), an agency within the United States Department of Defense. Since July 1991, DLA has been performing the response action at the Site pursuant to an Administrative Order by Consent (‘‘AOC’’) with EPA under sections 104 and 106 of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. 9604 and 9606. The Consent Decree would resolve the United States’ claims for past and future response costs with regard to the Site against Settling Defendants through a reimbursement to the Superfund of a portion of the response costs incurred or to be incurred by the United States at or in connection with the Site. Settling Defendants would collectively pay a total of $1.36 million in reimbursement for response costs that EPA has incurred at or in connection with the Site. (Each Settling Defendant’s individual payment is listed in Appendix A to the Consent Decree). As a condition of settlement, Settling Defendants would relinquish all claims or causes of action with respect to the Site against the United States, including DLA, and would waive all affirmative CERCLA claims or causes of action that they may have against any person. In return, the Settling Defendants would receive contribution protection and a covenant not to sue from the United States for the work at the Site as well as past and future response costs, subject to certain PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 reservations of rights. DLA would pay $1.48 million in reimbursement for past response costs incurred by EPA, its remaining obligations under the AOC would terminate, and EPA would assume responsibility for completing the remaining clean up of the Site. DLA also would receive contribution protection. The Department of Justice will receive for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of this publication comments relating to the Consent Decree.
