The United States’ complaint asserts claims against 18 separate parties, based on alleged releases or discharges of hazardous substances from numerous industrial facilities that operated in Ashtabula at various times since the 1940s.

The State’s complaint asserts claims against all of the parties named as defendants in the United States’ complaint, as well as certain entities that are part of the federal government. The proposed Consent Decree would resolve all claims assert in the complaints filed by the United States and the State of Ohio, as well as certain potential claims of the private party defendants against the United States. Under the terms of the proposed settlement, Settling Defendants and Settling Federal Agencies will collectively pay more than $2.3 million to federal and state natural resource damages funds as reimbursement for natural resource damage assessment costs previously incurred by federal and state natural resource trustees in connection with the Ashtabula River site. In addition, Settling Defendants will implement a number of natural resource damage restoration projects in accordance with plans approved by federal and state natural resource trustees. Finally, the proposed settlement provides for Settling Defendants to pay a total of $440,000 to the Trustees for future restoration activities, including costs that may be incurred by the Trustees in connection with restoration projects undertaken by the Settling Defendants.
