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

    Notice is hereby given that on September 23, 2011, a proposed 
Consent Decree in United States v. TRAC Enterprises, LLC, Civil Action 
No. 2:11-cv-00652, was lodged with the United States District Court for 
the Southern District of West Virginia.
    In this cost recovery action, brought pursuant to Section 107 of 
the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability 
Act of 1980, as amended (``CERCLA''), 42 U.S.C. 9607, the United 
States, on behalf of the Administrator of the United States 
Environmental Protection Agency (``EPA''), sought reimbursement of 
costs incurred by EPA for response actions taken at or in connection 
with the release or threatened release of hazardous substances at the 
Custom Plating and Polishing Site (``the Site'') in Dunbar, Kanawha 
County, West Virginia.
    The complaint alleged that EPA conducted an emergency removal 
action at the Site to address chemicals and wastes used in and 
generated by the electroplating and metal refinishing business that 
were found at the Site, including ``hazardous substances'' within the 
meaning of Section 101(14) of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. 9601(14).
    Under the proposed Consent Decree, TRAC Enterprises, LLC, the owner 
of the Site, will pay a total of $72,000 to the Hazardous Substance 
Superfund, in reimbursement of EPA's past response costs incurred 
through the date of entry of the Consent Decree. This amount was 
determined based on an analysis of TRAC Enterprise's ability to pay.
    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, 
Environment and Natural Resources Division, and either e-mailed to
