NCR Corp. will clean up and fund future response actions at a significant portion of the Allied Paper Inc./Portage Creek/Kalamazoo River Superfund site.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Department of Justice, the Kalamazoo River Natural Resource Trustee Council and the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy announced a proposed consent decree that also includes payments related to natural resource damages and past cleanup efforts at the site. The consent decree is subject to a 30-day public comment period.

According to the settlement terms, NCR has agreed to spend approximately $135.7 million on cleaning up efforts. In addition, the company will pay $76.5 million to the EPA for past and future costs in support of river cleanup activities; $27 million to natural resource trustees of the Kalamazoo River Natural Resource Trustee Council for natural resources damage assessment and claims; and $6 million to Michigan for past and future costs.
