NCR Corp., et al., Civil Action No. 10–cv–910. In 2010, the United States and the State of Wisconsin filed this action under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, 42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq. (‘‘CERCLA’’). The United States and the State brought claims against NCR Corporation (‘‘NCR’’), Appvion, Inc. (‘‘Appvion’’), and other defendants for recovery of response costs and natural resource damages, as well as enforcement of an administrative cleanup order issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (‘‘EPA’’), concerning polychlorinated biphenyl contamination in sediment at the Lower Fox River and Green Bay Superfund Site in northeastern Wisconsin (the ‘‘Site’’). Most of the original defendants entered into earlier, court-approved settlements with the United States and the State. The proposed Consent Decree with two remaining defendants—NCR and Appvion—would require NCR to continue and complete the ongoing sediment remediation work at the Site, which is currently being performed under EPA’s cleanup order. The settlement requires NCR to finish most of that work by the end of 2018, including the dredging and off-Site disposal of contaminated sediment located in the last few miles of the Lower Fox River and Green Bay. In return, the United States and the State agree not to continue pursuing their claims for the Site against NCR and Appvion under sections 106 and 107 of CERCLA. Under EPA’s cleanup order and prior court orders in the litigation, other defendants will have primary responsibility for long-term monitoring VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:02 Jan 19, 2017 Jkt 241001 and maintenance of speciallyengineered sediment containment caps installed in some portions of the river. The United States and the State also will continue their pursuit of cost recovery claims against one non-settling defendant, P.H. Glatfelter Company.
