SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The site to be deleted from the NPL is Sand Springs Petrochemical Complex located at Sand Springs, Oklahoma. A Notice of Intent to Delete for this site was published August 2, 1999 (64 FR 41875). The closing date for comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was extended to October 25, 1999. EPA received no comments and, therefore, no Responsiveness Summary was prepared.

The EPA identifies sites which appear to present a significant risk to public health, welfare, or the environment and maintains the NPL as the list of those sites. Deletion of a site from the NPL does not affect responsible party liability or impede agency efforts to recover costs associated with response efforts.
