U.S. EPA ANNOUNCES SETTLEMENT WITH NAVY FOR OII SUPERFUND SITE

 SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) today announced a proposed settlement with the U.S. Department of Navy for the disposal of waste in a landfill, known as the Operating Industries Inc. (OII) Superfund site, Monterey Park, Calif. The Long Beach Naval Facility in Long Beach, Calif., sent waste to the landfill for several years before the site was shut down in 1984.
 The settlement, valued at $1,079,660, resolves the Navy's liability for several cleanup activities including site control and monitoring, leachate treatment, gas migration control and construction of a landfill cover. The settlement also resolves the Navy for future state and U.S. EPA oversight costs associated with these cleanup activities at the site and for previous costs incurred up until Dec. 31, 1990.
 U.S. EPA is soliciting comment on the settlement during a 30-day public comment period which begins Feb. 9, 1993. Written comments should reference docket number 92-19. The public should send written comments, postmarked by March 11,1993, to:
 Steve Armsey, RC-1
 Regional Hearing Clerk
 U.S. EPA, Region 9
 75 Hawthorne St.
 San Francisco, CA 94105
 The OII landfill is a 190-acre Superfund site located in Monterey Park, Calif. The landfill operated from 1948 to 1984 and accepted industrial and municipal wastes. The landfill contains a wide variety of hazardous substances and is one of the most contaminated sites in the nation.
 U.S. EPA, the state of California and groups of companies that disposed of industrial waste at the OII site reached three earlier settlements valued at approximately $200 million to perform cleanup actions at the site.
 OII was proposed for the Superfund National Priorities List (NPL) in 1984 and was listed on the NPL in May 1986. The NPL is U.S. EPA's list of hazardous waste sites potentially posing the greatest long-term threat to public health and the environment.
