[FR Doc. 2015–17371 Filed 7–14–15; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 7020–02–P DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Notice of Lodging of Proposed Consent Decree Under the Clean Water Act On July 8, 2015 the Department of Justice lodged a proposed Consent Decree with the United States District Court for the District of Wyoming in the lawsuit entitled United States v. Cottonwood Creek, Inc., Civil Action No. 2:15-cv-00108–SWS. In this matter the United States file a Complaint which alleges violations of sections 301(a) and 311(b)(3) of the Clean Water Act (‘‘CWA’’), 33 U.S.C. 1311(a) and 1321(b)(3), arising in part from a March 2010 discharge of approximately 162 barrels of oil into an unnamed tributary of the Nowood River from a leak in a pipeline at Cottonwood Creek, Inc.’s onshore pumping facility located in Big Horn County, Wyoming. The Complaint further alleges that Cottonwood Creek had an inadequate Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure Plan in violation of CWA section 311(b)(7)(C), 33 U.S.C. 1321(b)(7)(C), and 40 CFR part 112, and also lacked a Facility Response Plan in violation of CWA sections 311(j)(5)(A)(i) and (C)(iv), 33 U.S.C. 1321(j)(5)(A)(i) and (C)(iv), and 40 CFR part 112. The proposed Consent Decree resolves all matters alleged in the Complaint for a civil penalty payment of $170,000. Cottonwood Creek Inc. no longer owns the facility. Because the cause of the discharge was promptly corrected and the discharge was adequately remediated, and since the Environmental Protection Agency approved a FRP for the facility, no injunctive relief is required under the proposed settlement. The publication of this notice opens a period for public comment on the Consent Decree. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural Resources Division, and should refer to United States v. Cottonwood Creek, Inc., D.J. Ref. No. 90–5–1–1–11197. All comments must be submitted no later than thirty (30) days after the VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:52 Jul 14, 2015 Jkt 235001 During the public comment period, the Consent Decree may be examined and downloaded at this Justice Department Web site: http:// www.justice.gov/enrd/consent-decrees. We will provide a paper copy of the Consent Decree upon written request and payment of reproduction costs. Please mail your request and payment to: Consent Decree Library, U.S. DOJ— ENRD, P.O. Box 7611, Washington, DC 20044–7611. Please enclose a check or money order for $4.75 (25 cents per page reproduction cost) payable to the United States Treasury. There are no exhibits attached to the Consent Decree. Bob Brook, Assistant Section Chief, Environmental Enforcement Section, Environment and Natural Resources Division.

Background The Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP) administers the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA). The Act provides benefits to workers’ injured in maritime employment on the navigable waters of the United States or in an adjoining area customarily used by an employer in loading, unloading, repairing, or building a vessel. In addition, several acts extend the Longshore Act’s coverage to certain other employees. The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA), at 33 U.S.C. 919(e), requires that any order rejecting or making an LHWCA award (the compensation order) be filed in the appropriate district director’s office of the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP), and that copies be sent by registered or certified mail to the claimant and the employer. The implementing regulations at 20 CFR 702.349(b) allow parties and their representatives to waive certified mail service and consent to electronic service instead. The compensation order notifies Employers/Carriers that payment of LHWCA compensation is due within 10 days of filing. If compensation is not paid within that time frame, an additional 20% in compensation must be paid [see LHWCA § 914(f)]. The information collected will be used by OWCP to more efficiently serve compensation orders by email instead of by registered or certified mail.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Office of Workers' Compensation Programs (OWCP) administers the 
Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (LHWCA). The Act 
provides benefits to workers' injured in maritime employment on the 
navigable waters of the United States or in an adjoining area 
customarily used by an employer in loading, unloading, repairing, or 
building a vessel. In addition, several acts extend the Longshore Act's 
coverage to certain other employees.
    The Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (LHWCA), at 33 
U.S.C. 919(e), requires that any order rejecting or making an LHWCA 
award (the compensation order) be filed in the appropriate district 
director's office of the Office of Workers' Compensation Programs 
(OWCP), and that copies be sent by registered or certified mail to the 
claimant and the employer. The implementing regulations at 20 CFR 
702.349(b) allow parties and their representatives to waive certified 
mail service and consent to electronic service instead. The 
compensation order notifies Employers/Carriers that payment of LHWCA 
compensation is due within 10 days of filing. If compensation is not 
paid within that time frame, an additional 20% in compensation must be 
paid [see LHWCA Sec.  914(f)].
    The information collected will be used by OWCP to more efficiently 
serve compensation orders by email instead of by registered or 
certified mail. Form LS-801 will be completed by the employer/

certified mail and designation of receipt by email instead. The LS-802
