ACTION:

Notice of deletion of the Schofield Army Barracks site from the national priorities list.

SUMMARY:

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 9 announces the deletion of the Schofield Army Barracks Site in Honolulu County, Oahu, Hawaii from the National Priorities List (NPL). The NPL constitutes Appendix B of 40 CFR part 300 which is the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP), which EPA promulgated pursuant to section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) of 1980, as amended. EPA and the State of Hawaii Department of Health have determined that the Site poses no significant threat to public health or the environment and, therefore, no further remedial measures pursuant to CERCLA are appropriate.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

August 10, 2000.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The site to be deleted from the NPL is: Schofield Army Barracks, Honolulu County, Oahu, Hawaii.

A Notice of Intent to Delete for this site was published in the Federal Register on May 22, 2000 (65 FR 32058). The closing date for comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was June 22, 2000. One comment was received from the public which supported the proposed deletion.

EPA identifies sites that appear to present a significant risk to public health, welfare, or the environment and it 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. Section 300.425(e)(3) of the NCP states that whenever there is a significant release from a site deleted from the NPL, the site shall be restored to the NPL without application of the Hazard Ranking System.
