DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE


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

    Under 28 CFR 50.7, notice is hereby given that on March 23, 2005, 
two proposed consent decrees in United States v. Parker Hannifin 
Corporation and Central Sprinkler Corporation, Civil Action No. 05-
1351, were lodged with the United States District Court for the Eastern 
District of Pennsylvania.
    In this action the United States is seeking injunctive relief and 
recovery of response costs incurred by the United States pursuant to 
the Compressive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act 
(``CERCLA''), 42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq., in connection with the Parker 
Hannifin/Precision Rebuilding and the Central Sprinkler properties at 
the North Penn Area Six Superfund Site (``Site''), which consists of a 
contaminated groundwater plume and a number of separate parcels of 
property located within and adjacent to the Borough of Landsdale, 
Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The proposed consent decrees will 
resolve the United States' claims against Parker Hannifin Corporation 
and Central Sprinkler Corporation (``Settling Defendants'') in 
connection with Operable Unite 3 at the Site. Under the terms of the 
proposed consent decrees, Settling Defendants will implement the EPA-
selected groundwater remedies at their respective properties and 
reimburse the United States for certain future response costs. Settling 
Defendants will receive a covenant not to sue by the United States for 
performance of the work and for recovery of past and future response 
costs.
    The Department of Justice will receive for a period of thirty (30) 
days from the date of this publication comments relating to the
