Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act

    Notice is hereby given that on February 27, 1998, a proposed 
consent decree in United States v. St. Julian Corp., et al., Civil 
Action No. 2:96CV1161 was lodged with the United States District Court

defendants will pay $400,000 based on their ability to pay, and the 
Defense Reutilization and Marketing Service, a component of the 
Department of Defense, against whom the defendants filed counter-
claims, will pay $1,239,327.58.

days from the date of this publication comments relating to the 
proposed decree. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney 
General of the Environment and Natural Resources Division, Department 
of Justice, Washington, DC 20530, and should refer to United States v.
