Pechiney Plastic Packaging, Inc. Key Developments

The Department of Justice and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Proposes Settlement with Pechiney Plastic Packaging, Inc., Albea Americas, Inc., Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Citigroup Inc., and Rexam Beverage Can Company

The Department of Justice and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a proposed settlement with several companies to address the Pohatcong Valley Groundwater Contamination Superfund site in Warren County, New Jersey. The companies are Pechiney Plastic Packaging, Inc. (Pechiney), Albea Americas, Inc., Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, Citigroup Inc., and Rexam Beverage Can Company. The Pohatcong site is contaminated with trichloroethylene (TCE) and perchloroethylene (PCE), which can have serious health effects. Under the proposed settlement, Pechiney will have primary responsibility for cleaning up contaminated soil and groundwater at the site, connecting some residents to public water to avoid contaminated groundwater, and operating systems to capture vapors that are getting into a manufacturing facility. As a precaution, the company will continue to monitor for vapor intrusion into homes at the site. In addition, the EPA will receive an estimated $29.5 million for certain past costs and be paid for its future oversight costs at the site. Pechiney will also perform current and future cleanup work estimated to cost $62.5 million, and will pay EPA's future oversight costs. As part of the settlement, EPA will recover civil penalties from Pechiney to resolve allegations that Pechiney violated a previous EPA order by failing to make satisfactory progress on a portion of the cleanup at the site. Pechiney will pay a cash penalty of $282,000. Pechiney will also restore and preserve approximately 60 acres of land, valued at $1.1 million, in Warren County through a Supplemental Environmental Project. This land will be converted to native grassland and will become part of the Morris Canal Greenway.
