SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The site to be partially deleted from the NPL is: Joslyn Manufacturing and Supply Superfund Site located in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. A Notice of Intent to Delete for this site was published February 19, 2002 (67 FR 7326). The closing date for comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was March 21, 2002. EPA received comments and therefore a Responsiveness Summary was prepared. The Responsiveness Summary was placed in the repository and with the Regional Docket Office.

A direct final notice of deletion was published on February 19, 2002 (67 FR 7279) which included the details of the partial deletion. While the direct final notice amendment is being removed in today's Federal Register, the details contained in the February 19, 2002 direct final deletion amendment describe the portion of the site being deleted by this notice.

The EPA identifies sites which appear to present a significant risk to public health, welfare, or the environment and it maintains the NPL as the list of those sites. Sites on the NPL may be the subject of Hazardous Substance Response Trust Fund (Fund-) financed remedial actions. 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 in the unlikely event that conditions at the site warrant such action. Deletion of a site from the NPL does not affect responsible party liability or impede agency efforts to recover costs associated with response efforts.
