AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION:

Notice of deletion of the Kassauf-Kimerling Battery Disposal Superfund Site from the National Priorities List (NPL).

SUMMARY:

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 4 announces the deletion of the Kassauf-Kimerling Battery Disposal Superfund Site from the National Priorities List (NPL).

EPA and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) have determined that the Site poses no significant threat to public health or the environment and therefore, further response measures pursuant to CERCLA are not appropriate.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

EPA announces the deletion of the Kassauf-Kimerling Battery Disposal Superfund Site in Tampa, Hillsborough County, Florida from the NPL, which constitutes appendix B of 40 CFR part 300. EPA published a Notice of Intent to Delete the Kassauf-Kimerling Battery Disposal Superfund Site from the NPL on August 5, 1999 in the Federal Register (64 FR 42630). EPA received no comments on the proposed deletion; therefore, no responsiveness summary is necessary for this Notice of Deletion.

EPA identifies sites on the NPL that appear to present a significant risk to public health, welfare, or the environment. Sites on the NPL may be the subject of remedial actions financed by the Hazardous Substances Superfund Response Trust Fund (Fund). Pursuant to 40 CFR 300.425(e)(3) of the NCP, any site deleted from the NPL remains eligible for Fund-financed Remedial Actions if conditions at the site warrant such action. Deletion of a site from the NPL does not affect the responsible party liability or impede agency efforts to recover costs associated with response efforts.
