2005/2006 Oversight Costs Dispute, Supplement #1

Administrative Record Index

To request copies of administrative record documents, an electronic order form is available.

This administrative record file contains the documents relating to an oversight costs dispute between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Omega PRP Organized Group (OPOG) under the February 28, 2001 Partial Consent Decree between OPOG and the United States, pursuant to which studies and work are being performed at the Omega Chemical Corp. Superfund site in Whittier, California. OPOG disputed the 2005-06 oversight charges of EPA’s contractor, CH2M Hill. It is presented in compact disc (CD) format.

This administrative record file contains all statements of position of EPA and OPOG, including supporting documentation submitted by the parties. It also contains guidance documents consulted by EPA during the dispute resolution period. Finally, it contains the decision of the Director of EPA Region 9's Superfund Division, the initial arbiter of the dispute. Because OPOG did not appeal the Director's decision in the United States District Court, the dispute has been resolved, and this administrative record file is complete.

EPA welcomes questions and comments on documents contained in the administrative record file. Please contact:
