Vandenberg Air Force Base Superfund Cleanup Costs

In July 2018, the Department of Justice lodged a proposed consent decree resolving the liability of Honeywell International under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) for costs the government incurred responding to the releases of hazardous substances at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. Soil and groundwater in various areas of the base—including Site 50, an area operated and used by Honeywell predecessor Bendix Corporation—were contaminated with hazardous substances, including trichloroethylene. Honeywell agreed to pay the government $250,000.
