The Coeur d’Alene Tribe is a cotrustee of injured natural resources and a party to the proposed Consent Decree. The Consent Decree requires payments totaling $208,500, based on the defendant’s financial resources. The Consent Decree also requires, among other things, that Defendants assign their interests in insurance policies to a trust, established for the benefit of EPA and the natural resource trustees, and pay two percent of net smelter returns generated from any future mining activities. The Consent Decree grants the Defendants a covenant not to sue for response costs, as well as natural resource damages, in connection with the Site. For thirty (30) days after the date of this publication, the Department of Justice will receive comments relating to the Consent Decree. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural Resources Division, and either e-mailed to pubcomment-ees.enrd@usdoj.gov or mailed to P.O.

TRAC Enterprises, LLC, Civil Action No. 2:11– cv–00652, was lodged with the United States District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia. In this cost recovery action, brought pursuant to Section 107 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, as amended (‘‘CERCLA’’), 42 U.S.C. 9607, the United States, on behalf of the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (‘‘EPA’’), sought reimbursement of costs incurred by EPA for response actions taken at or in connection with the release or threatened release of hazardous substances at the Custom Plating and Polishing Site (‘‘the Site’’) in Dunbar, Kanawha County, West Virginia. The complaint alleged that EPA conducted an emergency removal action at the Site to address chemicals and wastes used in and generated by the electroplating and metal refinishing business that were found at the Site, including ‘‘hazardous substances’’ within the meaning of Section 101(14) of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. 9601(14). Under the proposed Consent Decree, TRAC Enterprises, LLC, the owner of the Site, will pay a total of $72,000 to the Hazardous Substance Superfund, in reimbursement of EPA’s past response costs incurred through the date of entry of the Consent Decree. This amount was determined based on an analysis of TRAC Enterprise’s ability to pay.
