Notice of intent to delete the Farmers' Mutual Cooperative Superfund site (site) from the National Priorities List (NPL).
The EPA Region VII is issuing a notice of intent to delete the Farmers' Mutual Cooperative Superfund site (site) located in Hospers, Iowa, from the 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 and the state of Iowa through the Iowa Department of Natural Resources have determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA 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 notice of deletion of the Farmers' Mutual Cooperative 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 deletion. If we receive no adverse comment(s) on the direct final notice of deletion, we will not take further action on this notice of intent to delete. If we receive adverse comment(s), we will withdraw the direct final notice 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 notice of intent to delete. We will not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. For additional information, see the direct final notice of deletion which is located in the Rules section of this Federal Register.
Comments concerning this site must be received by October 11, 2001.
Written comments should be addressed to Catherine Barrett, Remedial Project Manager, Superfund Division, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region VII, 901 North 5th Street, Kansas City, KS 66101.Start Further Info
