SUMMARY: In accordance with section 122(i) of the Comprehensive

amended (CERCLA), 42 U.S.C. 9622(i), notice is hereby given of a 
proposed administrative cost recovery settlement concerning the Tyler 
Refrigeration Pit Superfund Site located in Smyrna, Kent County, 
Delaware (Proposed Settlement). The Proposed Settlement with the Clark 
Equipment Company, Inc. (Settling Party) has been approved by the 
Attorney General, or his designee, of the United States Department of 
Justice pursuant to section 122(h) of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. 9622(h). The 
Proposed Settlement was signed by the Regional Administrator of the

Party, and requires the Settling Party to make a payment of $49,429.00 
towards EPA's past response costs. This payment represents 
reimbursement of the remainder of costs EPA incurred in overseeing the 
Settling Party's performance of a Remedial Investigation at the Site as 
well as a partial reimbursement of other unreimbursed past costs 
incurred by EPA in connection with the Site as set forth in the EPA 
Financial Management System as of November 4, 2003.
