     H.   COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS.

          1.   IN GENERAL. Contractor, at its sole cost and expense, shall
conduct its activities hereunder on the Property in compliance with all
applicable laws, regulations, rules, orders, decrees, permits and agreements,
including without limitation those which are promulgated by the Department of
Defense or any division or related agency thereof, and including without
limitation those which relate to health, safety, environmental protection, waste
disposal, and water and air quality with respect to the use of the Property and
the rights granted hereunder (all of which are hereinafter referred to as the
'Requirements'). Further, Contractor shall conduct its activities in compliance
with all Requirements to which LEAD may be subject with respect to the Property
and LEAD's operations related thereto. The parties agree that to the extent that
any new Requirements are imposed, or any of the existing Requirements are
changed during the term of this Agreement, Contractor retains the right to seek
an equitable adjustment or other appropriate change under the Contract as may be
permitted by law.

          2.   COOPERATION IN OBTAINING PERMITS. Contractor at its sole expense
shall obtain any and all permits, licenses, and other authorizing documents as

EPA waste generator identification number in its own name.

          3.   GOVERNMENT DISAPPROVAL OF CONTRACTOR ACTIONS. If the Government

Section, Contractor shall be relieved of its obligations pursuant to this clause
for such action and any resulting conditions arising from the failure to take
such action.

     I.   ENVIRONMENTAL INVESTIGATION AND REMEDIATION.

          1.   POTENTIAL FOR CONTAMINATION AND INTENT TO APPORTION LIABILITY.

presently exists on the Property, and hereby express their mutual intent that
the purpose of this Section is to determine the present extent and nature of the
contamination, if any, and to determine, to the extent possible, the source or
sources of such contamination. Specifically, while FMC has agreed herein to
comply with all applicable laws, the Parties agree that it is not their intent
to require Contractor to cleanup or otherwise remediate any contamination which
may exist on or in the vicinity of the Property as of the commencement of this
Agreement.


                                        PAGE 4



          2.   CONTRACTOR RESPONSIBILITIES. Contractor shall be responsible for
addressing and correcting to the extent required by applicable laws and
regulations any environmental pollution, contamination and/or damage to the
Property occurring after the effective date of this Agreement and resulting from
Contractor's use and/or possession of the Property on or after the effective
date of this Agreement, regardless of whether (a) such pollution, contamination
or damage is discovered before or after the expiration or termination of this
Agreement, or (b) corrective or response actions continue or are required to
begin after the expiration or termination of this Agreement. Contractor's
obligations pursuant to this paragraph do not extend to any acts of the United
States or its agents. Contractor is not an agent of the United States for
purposes of this exclusion.

          3.   CONTRACTOR RIGHT TO PERFORM ENVIRONMENTAL INVESTIGATIONS.
Provided Government awards the Contract to Contractor, Contractor shall
undertake a reasonable investigation of the Property, including taking soil and
groundwater samples as may be necessary, prior to the commencement of its use or
occupancy of the Property pursuant to this Agreement to determine the extent,
nature and possible source or sources of contamination, if any, which may
presently exist on the Property prior to Contractor's use or occupancy thereof
pursuant to this Agreement. Further, FMC shall perform a reasonable
environmental investigation of the Property at the conclusion of the Term of
this Agreement to determine the level and extent of contamination, if any, which
may then exist on the Property. Contractor shall provide to LEAD a copy of such
investigation results.

          4.   RESERVATION OF RIGHTS. Notwithstanding any other provision of
this Agreement, Contractor and the Government hereby reserve any and all rights
and defenses available under law or any other contract between the parties that
may apply to any liability to a third party, including without limitation other
federal, state or local governmental agencies, relating to or arising from
environmental conditions existing on, emanating from or relating to the Property
on the effective date of this Agreement. Nothing in this Agreement shall be
construed to abrogate any such rights and defenses.

          5.   GOVERNMENT AND LEAD DISCLOSURE OF ENVIRONMENTAL AND HISTORICAL
INFORMATION. Beginning on the effective date of this Agreement, LEAD shall use
its best efforts to provide to Contractor all information within its possession
concerning (a) the historical uses of the Property, (b) the type, quantity and

of at the Property prior to the effective date of this Agreement, including a
description of the response actions taken, if any, regarding such substances,
and (c) any other environmental conditions which may exist on the LEAD which may
have an adverse impact upon the Property. Government shall be responsible for

Agreement, Contractor shall indemnify, defend and hold the Government harmless
against any and all claims, demands, judgments, administrative actions,
enforcement actions and lawsuits against the Government alleging environmental
pollution, contamination, damage to property or personal injury and/or violation
of any environmental, health or safety law, regulation, permit, order, decree or
agreement, resulting from actions or omissions of contractor during Contractor's
use and/or possession of the Property pursuant to this Agreement. Contractor's
obligation pursuant to this paragraph shall continue regardless of whether such
allegations are made before or after the expiration or termination of this
Agreement. Contractor's obligations pursuant to this cause do not extend to acts
of the United States or its agents. Contractor is not an agent of the United
States for purposes of this exclusion. Contractor shall be relieved of its
obligations pursuant to this clause for any conditions arising from
environmental compliance or remediation activities which Contractor has proposed
to undertake and Government has unreasonably disapproved or disallowed to be
taken on the Property.

     K.   INDEMNIFICATION FOR THIRD PARTY NON-ENVIRONMENTAL CLAIMS. As of the
effective date of this Agreement, Contractor shall indemnify, defend and hold
the Government harmless against all claims for personal injury to any and all
persons and damage to property of Contractor or any and all other persons
arising from Contractor's use or possession of the Property, provided that: (1)
the provisions of Contractor's related procurement contracts shall govern any
assumption of liability by the Government for claims arising from those
contracts; and (2) indemnification for all claims involving environmental
pollution or contamination shall be governed by the Section of this Agreement,
