    Notice is hereby given that on May 4, 2006, a proposed Consent 
Decree in United States v. Browning-Ferris, Inc., et al., Civil Action 
No. 06-1134, was lodged with the United States District Court for the 
District of Maryland.
    The proposed consent decree in United States v. Browning-Ferris,

at the Kane and Lombard Site, located in Baltimore, Maryland (the 
``Site''). This consent decree obligates four defendants to perform the 
remedy that EPA selected for the second operable unit at the Site. Also 
included in the decree are fourteen parties that are contributing 
financially to the clean-up through payments to the defendants, but who 
will not be performing the work nor directly reimbursing the Federal or 
state past response costs. EPA estimates that the work to be performed 
pursuant to this consent decree will be approximately $7,345,000.
