In June 2008, the federal government entered into a consent decree with ExxonMobil to resolve the government’s claims for response costs pursuant to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (‘‘CERCLA’’). The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) incurred costs in connection with clean-up activities performed at the Big John’s Salvage Site, located in Marion County, West Virginia. Under the consent decree, ExxonMobil will pay EPA $3,000,000 in reimbursement. In August 2012, Exxon and the government entered into another consent decree under which Exxon agreed to contribute an additional $11,000,000 towards cleanup of the site.
