Announcements and Key Topics
On December 4, 2018, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Atlantic Richfield Company filed a motion requesting a modification of the confidentiality order entered in U.S. v. Atlantic Richfield, et al. On the same day Judge Haddon of the United States District Court for the District of Montana granted the motion and issued an order modifying the previously issued confidentiality order governing negotiations for the Anaconda Co. Smelter Superfund site. The parties may now share with the community and public certain information about the negotiations.
The order as filed by the parties and issued by the court allows for the release of certain information concerning the conceptual settlement agreement that was reached by the parties on October 11, 2018. The conceptual settlement framework provides for a final settlement at the Anaconda Co. Smelter site. This information will be released in stages, as the parties complete work items to implement the agreement. It also provides opportunities for public review and comment of proposed remedy changes before a formal decision is made to modify existing remedies and implement the future work.
