[FR Doc. 2010–33207 Filed 1–3–11; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 7020–02–P DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE Notice of Lodging of Consent Decree Under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act In accordance with Departmental Policy, 28 CFR 50.7, notice is hereby given that a proposed Consent Decree in United States of America v. The Boeing Company et al., Civil Action No. 10– 457–LRS (E.D. Wa.), was lodged with the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington on December 23, 2010. The proposed PO 00000 Frm 00074 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 385 Consent Decree settles claims for, inter alia, response costs to address hazardous substances released at the Moses Lake Wellfield Superfund Site (Site). The complaint asserts claims against the defendants—The Boeing Company, Lockheed Martin Corporation, and the City of Moses Lake—for response costs incurred at the Site by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the United States Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) pursuant to the section 107(a) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), 42 U.S.C. 9607(a). The complaint also seeks a declaratory judgment of liability against the defendants for future response costs incurred by EPA and the Corps at the Site. The State of Washington also filed a complaint on December 23, 2010, asserting claims for response costs against the defendants as well as against the United States. Under the proposed Consent Decree, the defendants will make payments to the United States totaling $3.25 million to resolve their CERCLA liability at the Site. The United States, on behalf of a group of settling Federal agencies including the United States Air Force, will make payments to EPA for the future response costs that are not covered by the defendants’ payments. The United States will also pay, on behalf of the settling Federal agencies, future response costs incurred by the State of Washington. Based on cleanup cost estimates, the United States’ payments on behalf of the settling Federal agencies, which will be largely to EPA, are expected to be approximately $55 million. The payments by the United States resolve claims against it by the State of Washington as well as claims by the defendants. In addition, the United States, on behalf of the settling Federal agencies, will pay the City of Moses Lake approximately $2.96 million to resolve claims for response costs and attorney fees asserted by the City of Moses Lake in its related pending lawsuit, No. 04–0376. The Department of Justice will receive written comments relating to the proposed Consent Decree for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of publication of this notice. Comments 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. Box 7611, U.S. Department of Justice, Washington, DC 20044–7611, and should refer to United States of America E:\FR\FM\04JAN1.SGM 04JAN1
