Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Proposed partial deletion of portions of the Department of Energy (DOE) Mound Superfund Site (Mound Site) known as release block D and release block H from the national priorities list (NPL).


The EPA proposes to delete Release Block D, a 12-acre parcel of property along the eastern border of the Mound Site, containing two industrial buildings. This proposal also pertains to Release Block H, a 14 acre parcel of property consisting of the Mound plant parking lot portions of the Department of Energy Mound Superfund Site from the NPL. This proposal also requests public comment on this action. The NPL constitutes appendix B to Part 300 of the National and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP), which U.S. EPA promulgated pursuant to Section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA) as amended. EPA has determined that these portions of the Site currently pose no significant threat to public health or the environment, as defined by CERCLA, and therefore, further remedial measures under CERCLA are not appropriate. EPA is publishing this proposed rule without prior notification because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial revision and anticipates no dissenting comments. A detailed rationale for this approval is set forth in the direct final rule. If no dissenting comments are received, the deletion will become effective. If EPA receives dissenting comments, the direct final action will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second comment period. Any parties interested in commenting should do so at this time.
