Notice of Lodging of Consent Decree Under the Comprehensive 
Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act

    Notice is hereby given that on May 23, 2008, a proposed Consent 
Decree in United States v. Kaman Aerospace Corporation, Civil Action 
No. 08-00794, was lodged with the United States District Court for the 
District of Connecticut.
    In this action, the United States sought recovery of past and 
future response costs incurred by the United States Navy in connection 
with the Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant in Bloomfield, 
Connecticut (``Facility''). The Consent Decree resolves the potential 
liability of both the United States, which owned the Facility, and 
Kaman Aerospace Corporation (``Kaman''), a government contractor that 
operated the Facility, for all response costs incurred or to be 
incurred in connection with the Facility. In return for transferring 
the Facility to Kaman, Kaman will complete the remaining environmental 
remediation of the Facility. In addition, each party releases the other 
from liability for all response costs.
    The Department of Justice will receive for a period of thirty (30) 
days from the date of this publication comments relating to the Consent 
Decree. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General,
