(‘‘Alcoa’’) and Intervenor-Defendant TXU Sandow Development Company LP (‘‘TXU Sandow’’) to resolve certain alleged violations of the Consent Decree in this action. The specific alleged violations addressed by the stipulation relate to Alcoa’s failure to commence construction of one or more new units (the ‘‘Replacement Sandow Units’’) to replace the three existing electricity generating units (the ‘‘Existing Sandow Units’’) at Alcoa’s Rockdale, Texas, facility by April 25, 2005; and Alcoa’s anticipated failure to commence operation of the new replacement units by April 25, 2007. The relief provided by the stipulation is set forth in a proposed order (‘‘Stipulated Order’’) that the United States tendered with its PO 00000 Frm 00100 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 motion. This Stipulated Order provides for, among other things: • Payment of $859,000 in stipulated penalties as part of the resolution of Alcoa’s anticipated failure to commence timely operation of the Replacement Sandow Units by April 25, 2007; • Shutdown of the three Existing Sandow Units by December 31, 2006, roughly four months earlier than required by the consent decree; • A commitment by Alcoa and TXU Sandow to commence operation of the Replacement Sandow Unit with full emission controls by no later than August 31, 2009; • A commitment by Alcoa and TXU Sandow to achieve an emission rate for NOX at the Replacement Sandow Unit that is 20% lower than the rate currently provided for in the Consent Decree; and • A commitment by TXU Sandow to install selective catalytic reduction system (‘‘SCR’’) to eliminate most of the remaining NOX emissions from Sandow Unit 4—a unit not previously addressed by the consent decree. The Stipulated Order also provides for the addition of TXU Sandow as a party to the Consent Decree, jointly and severally liable with Alcoa for the obligations pertaining to the Replacement Sandow Unit, and solely liable for the obligations pertaining to the SCR at Sandow Unit 4. The Department of Justice will receive for a period of twenty (20) days from the date of this publication comments relating to the proposed Stipulated Order.
