Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION:

Proposed notice of intent to delete the Gulf Coast Vacuum Services Superfund Site from the National Priorities List.

SUMMARY:

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 6 is issuing a proposed notice of intent to delete the Gulf Coast Vacuum Services Superfund Site (Site) located in Vermilion Parish, Louisiana from the National Priorities List (NPL) and requests public comments on this notice of intent. The NPL, promulgated pursuant to section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) of 1980, as amended, is found at appendix B of 40 CFR part 300 of the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP). The EPA, with the concurrence of the State of Louisiana, through the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ), has determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA, other than operation and maintenance and five-year reviews, have been completed. However, this deletion does not preclude future actions under Superfund.

In the “Rules and Regulations” section of today's Federal Register, we are publishing a direct final rule of deletion of the Gulf Coast Vacuum Services Superfund Site without prior notice of intent to delete because we view this as a noncontroversial revision and anticipate no adverse comment. We have explained our reasons for this deletion in the preamble to the direct final rule of deletion. If we receive no adverse comment(s) on this action, we will not take further action on this proposed notice of intent to delete. If we receive adverse comment(s), we will withdraw the direct final rule of deletion and it will not take effect. We will, as appropriate, address all public comments in a subsequent final deletion notice based on this proposed notice of intent to delete. We will not institute a second comment period on this notice of intent to delete. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. For additional information, see the direct final rule of deletion which is located in the Rules section of this Federal Register.

DATES:

Comments concerning this Site must be received by June 21, 2001.
