SUMMARY:

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region III announces the deletion of the McAdoo Associates Superfund Site (Site), located in McAdoo Borough, Schuylkill County, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, from the National Priorities List (NPL).

The NPL, promulgated pursuant to section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, as amended (CERCLA), 33 U.S.C. 9605, is appendix B of the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP), 40 CFR part 300. EPA and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, have determined that the site no longer poses a significant threat to public health or the environment and that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA have been completed. Monitoring of on-site wells, and five-year reviews to ensure that the site remains protective of public health and the environment will continue to be conducted.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

December 13, 2001.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The site to be deleted from the NPL is: McAdoo Associates Site, McAdoo Borough, Schuylkill County, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Start Printed Page 64358

A Notice of Intent to Delete for this site was published in the Federal Register on October 3, 2001, 66 FR 48018. The closing date for comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was November 2, 2001. EPA received no comments during the comment period.

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. Any site deleted from the NPL remains eligible for Fund-financed remedial actions in the unlikely event that conditions at the site warrant such action. Section 300.425(e)(3) of the NCP states that Fund-financed actions may be taken at sites deleted from the NPL. Deletion of a site from the NPL does not affect responsible party liability or impede agency efforts to recover costs associated with response efforts.
