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

    Notice is hereby given that on October 19, 2000, a proposed Partial 
Consent Decree in United States v. American Scrap Company, et al., 
Civil Action No. 1:99-CV-2047, was lodged with the United States 
District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.
    In this action the United States seeks the reimbursement of 
response costs in connection with the Jack's Creek/Sitkin Smelting 
Superfund Site in Mifflin County, Pennsylvania (``the Site''), pursuant 
to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability 
Act (``CERCLA''), 42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq. The Partial Consent Decree 
resolves the United States' claims against Industrial Steel & Pipe 
Supply Company, J. Sepenuk & Sons, Inc., and Kingsport Iron & Metal
