Notice of Proposed Consent Decrees Under the Comprehensive 

Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA)



    Pursuant to Section 122(d)(2) of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. 9622(d)(2), 

notice is hereby given that on June 28, 2011, two proposed Consent 

Decrees in United States v. Atlantic Land and Improvement Co. et al., 

Civil Action No. 8:11-cv-01435-EAK-EAJ, were lodged with the United 

States District Court for the Middle District of Florida.

    In this action the United States sought to require the Defendants, 

Atlantic Land and Improvement Co. (``ALI'') and Stephen J. Cook and 

Patricia J. Cook (``the Cooks''), to conduct remedial design and 

remedial action to address releases and threatened releases of 

hazardous substances at the Raleigh Street Dump Superfund Site 

(``Site'') in Tampa, Hillsborough County, Florida. The United States 

also sought to recover past and future costs incurred and to be 

incurred by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) during the 

performance of response actions at the Site.

    Under the Consent Decree with ALI, ALI will perform the remedial 

design and remedial action at the Site. The remedy provides for 

excavation of approximately 12,000 cubic yards of contaminated soils 

and sediments, replacement with clean fill to pre-removal grade, 

monitored natural attenuation of contaminated groundwater, and 

restoration of on-site wetlands impacted during removal of contaminated 

soils/sediments. ALI will also excavate an additional approximately 

2,000 cubic yards of soil and place approximately 4,400 square feet of 

concrete slab under existing buildings at the Site. ALI will also 

reimburse the Hazardous Substance Superfund in the amount of $175,000 

for EPA's future response costs at the Site.

    Under the Consent Decree with the Cooks, the Cooks will record a 

notice to successors-in-title and deed restrictions on the portion of 

the Site owned by them; ensure that materials and land use at the Site 

do not interfere with the remedial action; and reimburse the Hazardous 

Substance Superfund in the amount of $20,000.

    The Department of Justice will receive for a period of thirty (30) 

days from the date of this publication comments relating to the Consent 

Decrees. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney 

General, Environment and Natural Resources Division, and either emailed
