Notice of Lodging of Proposed Consent Decree Under the Clean Air 

    Notice is hereby given that, for a period of 30 days, the United 
States will receive public comments on a proposed Consent Decree in 
United States v. Delek Refining, Ltd. (Civil Action No. 6:14-cv-0783), 
which was lodged with the United States District Court for the Eastern 
District of Texas on September 29, 2014.
    The Complaint in this Clean Air Act case was filed against Delek 
Refining, Ltd. (``Delek'') concurrently with the lodging of the 
proposed Consent Decree. This is a civil action brought pursuant to 
Section 113(b)(2) of the Clean Air Act (``CAA''), 42 U.S.C. 7413(b)(2), 
against Delek for alleged violations of Sections 112(r)(1) and 
112(r)(7)(E) of the CAA, 42 U.S.C. 7412(r)(1) and 7412(r)(7)(E), and 
the Chemical Accident Prevention Provisions promulgated at 40 CFR Part 
68 (the ``Risk Management Program'' regulations) at Delek's petroleum 
refinery located at 1702 East Commerce Street in Tyler, Texas 
(``Refinery''). Delek's alleged violations relate to acts and omissions 
leading up to and following a pipe rupture and fire that occurred at 
the Refinery on November 20, 2008. Pursuant to Section 113(b)(2) of the 
CAA, 42 U.S.C. 7413(b)(2), the United States seeks the assessment of 
civil penalties and injunctive relief based on Delek's violations of 
Section 112(r) of the Act and the Risk Management Program regulations. 
The Consent Decree proposes to resolve the civil action by requiring 
Delek to perform corrective measures and pay a penalty of $475,000.

the proposed Consent Decree. Comments should be addressed to the
