Bayard Mining Corp. et al., Civil Action No. 95–0285 MV/LFG, was lodged with the United States District Court for the District of New Mexico. In this action, the parties to the Consent Decree have stipulated to modify the Consent Decree entered by the Court in this matter on June 12, 1995. The original Consent Decree was entered pursuant to Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (‘‘CERCLA’’) sections 106(a) and 107, 42 U.S.C. 9606(a) and 9607, and section 7003 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (‘‘RCRA’’), 42 U.S.C. 6903. The original Consent Decree addressed the cleanup of the Cleveland Mill Superfund Site, located near Silver City, New Mexico. Due to changes in the required response action at the Site, the parties have stipulated to modify this Consent Decree. Since entry of the Consent Decree in 1995, a separate CERCLA removal action, conducted at the Site by the Settling Defendants pursuant to EPA’s administrative authorities, has obviated the need for the remedial action required by the Consent Decree. Although the Settling Defendants have performed the work pursuant to these revised terms, the corresponding changes to the Consent Decree have not been made. The proposed modifications serve to harmonize the Consent Decree with the history of the response actions at the Site. The Department of Justice will receive for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of this publication comments relating to the Proposed Modifications to the Consent Decree. Comments PO 00000 Frm 00085 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural Resources Division, and either e-mailed to pubcommentees.enrd@usdoj.gov or mailed to P.O.
