Ormet Primary Aluminum Corporation, Civil Action No. C2–95– 947, was lodged with the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, Eastern Division. In 1995, the United States entered into a Consent Decree with Ormet Primary Aluminum Corporation, Inc. (‘‘Ormet Primary’’), which settled a matter under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, 42 U.S.C. 9606 & 9607, for the Ormet Corporation Superfund Site (‘‘Site’’) in Hannibal, Ohio. Under the Consent Decree, Ormet Primary is required to undertake work to address releases at the Site and provide financial assurance to ensure completion of the work. In 2007, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (‘‘U.S. EPA’’) determined that Ormet Primary had failed to meet the terms of the financial assurance provisions of the Consent Decree. The Amendment addresses Ormet Primary’s failure to have adequate financial assurance by requiring scheduled submissions to the U.S. EPA of letter(s) of credit which by December 21, 2009, in the aggregate, will equal $3,400,000.00. The Amendment also requires, among other things, environmental covenants be recorded with the Register of Deeds, Monroe County, Ohio, identifying use restrictions for the Site and other specified property. The Department of Justice will receive for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of this publication comments relating to the Amendment. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant E:\FR\FM\09DEN1.SGM 09DEN1
