Proposed Rule

National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; National Priorities List: Intent to Partially Delete the Letterkenny Army Depot Southeastern (SE) Area and Letterkenny Army Depot Property Disposal Office (PDO) Area Superfund Sites

Action

Proposed Rule.

Summary

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region III is issuing a Notice of Intent to Delete portions of the Letterkenny Army Depot Southeastern (SE) Area and Letterkenny Army Depot Property Disposal Office (PDO) Area (Sites), located in Chambersburg, Franklin County, Pennsylvania, from the National Priorities List (NPL) and requests public comments on this proposed action. The NPL, promulgated pursuant to section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) of 1980, as amended, is an appendix of the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP). The EPA and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP), have determined that all appropriate response actions at these identified parcels under CERCLA, other than operation, maintenance, and five-year reviews, have been completed. However, this deletion does not preclude future actions under Superfund.

This partial deletion pertains to the soil and groundwater of parcels 24, 27, 28, 2-53, 2-53L, 2-54, 2-54L, 2-70, 2-70L, 3-89, 3-90, and 3-91. All other parcels within the site boundaries of the Letterkenny Army Depot SE and PDO Areas will remain on the NPL and are not being considered for deletion as part of this action.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

In the “Rules and Regulations” Section of today's Federal Register, we are publishing a direct final Notice of Partial Deletion for portions of the Letterkenny Army Depot SE and PDO Areas without prior Notice of Intent for Partial Deletion because EPA views this as a noncontroversial revision and anticipates no adverse comment. We have explained our reasons for this partial deletion in the preamble to the direct final Notice of Partial Deletion, and those reasons are incorporated herein. If we receive no adverse comment(s) on this partial deletion action, we will not take further action on this Notice of Intent for Partial Deletion. If we receive adverse comment(s), we will withdraw the direct final Notice of Partial Deletion and it will not take effect. We will, as appropriate, address all public comments in a subsequent final Notice of Partial Deletion based on this Notice of Intent for Partial Deletion. We will not institute a second comment period on this Notice of Intent for Partial Deletion. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time.

For additional information, see the direct final Notice of Partial Deletion which is located in the Rules section of this Federal Register.
