Notice of Lodging of Amended Consent Decree Pursuant to the 
Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act

    In accordance with Departmental policy, 28 CFR 50.7, notice is 
hereby given that a proposed amended consent decree in United States v. 
Reichhold Chemical Co., et al., Civil Action No. H-89-0010(W), was 
lodged on August 24, 1994 with the United States District Court for the 
Southern District of Mississippi, Hattiesburg Division. This amended 
consent decree addresses groundwater contamination at a certain portion 
of the Newsome Brothers Superfund Site that was discovered during 
remedial action being performed under the consent decree which was 
entered on July 25, 1990. This contamination either did not exist or 
was undetected when the consent decree was entered on July 25, 1990. 
Pursuant to the amendment, Reichhold will undertake the remedial 
investigation and feasibility study (``RI/FS'') to determine the extent 
of the groundwater contamination and alternatives for remediation. 
After the RI/FS process is completed, Reichhold and EPA will negotiate 
a remedial design and remedial action (``RD/RA'') plan for remediating 
the groundwater contamination. The consent decree entered on July 25, 
1990, except for changes to address the newly discovered groundwater 
contamination, remains essentially unchanged.
    The Department of Justice will receive, for a period of thirty (30) 
days from the date of this publication, comments relating to the 
proposed consent decree. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant 
Attorney General for the Environment and Natural Resources Division, 
Department of Justice, Washington, DC 20530, and should refer to United 
States v. Reichhold Chemical Co., et al. (Newsome Bros. Superfund 
Site), DOJ Ref. #90-11-3-378.
    The proposed consent decree may be examined at the office of the 
United States Attorney, 701 Main Street, room 208, Hattiesburg, 
Mississippi 39401; the Region IV Office of the Environmental Protection 
Agency, 345 Courtland Street, NE, Atlanta, Georgia 30365; and at the 
Consent Decree Library, 1120 G Street, NW, 4th Floor, Washington, DC
