This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

Notice; request for public comment.
Under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, as amended (“CERCLA”), the United States Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) proposes to enter into a Prospective Purchaser Agreement (“PPA”) regarding the Benfield Industries Superfund Site in Waynesville, Haywood County, North Carolina. EPA proposes to enter into the PPA with the party who purchases the property pursuant to a judgment sale conducted by the Haywood County Sheriff (the “Purchaser”). The PPA obligates the Purchaser to cooperate with any response actions EPA may take on the property, to grant EPA access for any such response actions, and to comply with specified institutional controls. Further, the PPA provides the Purchaser with a covenant not to sue from the United States for Existing Contamination on the property. The covenant is conditioned upon the Purchaser's fulfilling its obligations under the PPA. EPA will consider comments on the proposed PPA for thirty (30) days.
EPA may withdraw from or modify the proposed PPA should such comments disclose facts or considerations which indicate the proposed PPA is inappropriate, improper, or inadequate. Copies of the proposed settlement are available from: Ms. Paula V. Batchelor, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region IV, Waste Management Division, 61 Forsyth Street, SW., Atlanta, Georgia 30303, 404/562-8887.
Written comments may be submitted to Ms. Batchelor at the above address within 30 days of the date of publication.Start Signature
Dated: December 21, 2001.

Acting Chief, CERCLA Program Services Branch, Waste Management Division.
