(Boston, Mass.—February 5, 2013) EPA recently reached a settlement with Pacific Mills Acquisition LLC, to recover $300,000 in Agency clean up costs at the Bay State Plating and Polishing Site in Lawrence. EPA will release a lien it holds on the property in exchange for the cost recovery.

The Bay State Plating and Polishing Site is a former plating facility that was located on the third floor of Building 6 at 300 Canal Street, Lawrence, Massachusetts. The Site is located on the property of a former mill, currently known as the Pacific Mills Industrial Complex, which houses a number of commercial tenants. When Bay State Plating and Polishing went out of business it left behind chemicals, rinse solutions, and numerous waste drums in the building.

The proposed Consent Agreement is subject to a 30-day comment period, announced in the Federal Register, which will end on February 25, 2013. Link to the proposed settlement:!documentDetail;D=EPA_FRDOC_0001-13584
