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

    Under 42 U.S.C. 9622(d)(2)(B) and 28 CFR 50.7, notice is hereby 
given that on July 3, 2007, a proposed consent decree in United States 
v. Rexmet Corporation, Civil Action No. 07-cv-2754, was 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

Rex Facility (located at Valley Forge Road & 8th Street, Lansdale, PA 
19446) 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 
Lansdale, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The proposed consent decree 
will resolve the United States' claims against Rexmet Corporation 
(``Settling Defendant'') in connection with the Site. Under the terms 
of the proposed consent decree, Settling Defendant will (1) implement 
the EPA-selected groundwater remedy at the J.W. Rex Facility, and (2) 
pay the United States $250,000.00 plus interest (in two payments) in 
partial reimbursement of the United States' past response costs. 
Settling Defendant will receive a covenant not to sue by the United 
States with regard to the Site.
