In accordance with the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), notice is hereby given that a proposed administrative settlement agreement for recovery of past and future response costs (proposed agreement) associated with the DuPont-Newport Superfund Site, Newcastle County, Delaware, was executed by the EPA and by the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) pursuant to the authority of the Attorney General of the United States to settle and compromise claims of the United States. The proposed agreement is now subject to public comment, after which the EPA and the DOJ may modify or withdraw their consent if comments received disclose facts or considerations that indicate that the proposed agreement is inappropriate, improper, or inadequate. The proposed agreement would resolve potential EPA claims under Section 107(a) of CERCLA, against E.I. DuPont de Nemours and Company and BASF Corporation. The Proposed Agreement would require Settling Parties to reimburse EPA $178,646.09 for past response costs paid by EPA or DOJ on behalf of EPA and to pay future response costs for the Site.
