Atlantic Richfield Co., part of British Petroleum, recently pledged to complete the environmental remediation it's been pursuing at the Anaconda Superfund site located in southwestern Montana. EPA has issued Atlantic Richfield directives since the 1990s, but under a consent decree lodged in the U.S. District Court in Butte, Mont., on Sept. 30, the company is committing to resolution. 

Atlantic Richfield will pay $83.1 million to cover the remaining cleanup at the Anaconda-Deer Lodge County site, agreeing to pay another $48 million to the Anaconda site account in the federal Superfund program.
