Bayer CropScience LP, Civil Action No. 2:15– cv–13331. The United States filed this lawsuit under the Clean Air Act. The United States’ complaint alleges that Bayer CropScience violated section 112(r) of the Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7412(r), which addresses the prevention of accidental releases. The claims arise out of a 2008 explosion at the Methomyl production unit at Bayer CropScience’s plant in Institute, West Virginia. The original consent decree, which was entered by the court on August 9, 2016, required the defendant, Bayer CropScience LP, to pay a civil penalty of $975,000, to perform injunctive relief to reduce the likelihood of future accidents at the Institute Plant and several other chemical processing plants, and to perform supplemental environmental projects valued collectively at $4.23 million. The proposed modification replaces one of the supplemental environmental projects, which entailed expanding a wastewater sump, with another project that entails purchasing emergency response equipment. As a result, the total cost of the supplemental environmental projects will decrease to $3.05 million. The publication of this notice opens a period for public comment on the proposed second modification to consent decree. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:19 Sep 11, 2017 Jkt 241001 During the public comment period, the consent decree may be examined and downloaded at this Justice Department Web site: https:// www.justice.gov/enrd/consent-decrees/.
