SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The site to be deleted from the NPL is the Chemform, Inc. Site, Pompano Beach, Broward County, Florida.

EPA published a Notice of Intent to Delete the Chemform, Inc. Site from the NPL on May 9, 2000 in the Federal Register (65 FR 26803). EPA did not receive any comments on the proposed deletion. Therefore, no responsiveness summary is necessary for attachment to this Notice of Deletion.

EPA identifies sites which appear to present a significant risk to public health, welfare, or the environment and it maintains the NPL as the list of those sites. Sites on the NPL may be the subject of Hazardous Substances Superfund Response Trust Fund (Fund-financed) remedial actions. Any site deleted from the NPL remains eligible for Fund-financed remedial actions in the unlikely event that conditions at the site warrant such action. 40 CFR 300.425(e)(3) of the NCP states that Fund-financed actions may be taken at sites deleted from the NPL. Deletion of a site from the NPL does not affect responsible party liability or impede agency efforts to recover costs associated with response efforts.
