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 to the 
Purchaser Agreement. The Agency's response to any comments received 
will be available for public inspection at the U.S. Environmental
