agreement (``Purchaser Agreement'') associated with the North Penn Area 
7 Superfund Site, Lansdale Borough and Upper Gwynedd Township, 
Montgomery County, Pennsylvania was executed by the Environmental 
Protection Agency and the Department of Justice and is now subject to 
public comment, after which the United States may modify or withdraw 
its consent if comments received disclose facts or considerations which 
indicate that the Purchaser Agreement is inappropriate, improper, or 
inadequate. The Purchaser Agreement would resolve certain potential EPA 
claims under sections 106 and 107 of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. 9606, 9607, 
against 1190 Church Road Associates, L.P. (``Purchaser''). The 
settlement would require the Purchaser to, among other things, 
reimburse the Environmental Protection Agency $90,000.00 for response 
costs incurred and to be incurred at the Site.
    For thirty (30) days following the date of publication of this 
notice, the Agency will receive written comments relating
