Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION:

Notice of intent to delete a portion of the Department of Energy (DOE) Mound Superfund Site from the National Priorities List.

SUMMARY:

The Environmental Protection Agency, (EPA) Region V is issuing a notice of intent to delete Parcel 4 from the Department of Energy (DOE) Mound Superfund Site ( Mound Site) located in Miamisburg, Ohio, from the National Priorities List (NPL) and requests public comments on this notice of intent to delete. Parcel 4 is located on the southern border of the operational area of the Mound Superfund Site. 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, which is the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP). The EPA and the State of Ohio, through the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, have determined that the DOE has implemented all appropriate response actions required with respect to Parcel 4. However, this deletion does not preclude future actions under Superfund or relieve DOE of their Long-Stewardship or Operation and Maintenance responsibilities. In the “Rules and Regulations” Section of today's Federal Register, we are publishing a direct final notice of deletion of Parcel 4 of the Mound Superfund Site without prior notice of intent to delete because we view this as a non-controversial revision and anticipate no adverse comment. We have explained our reasons for this Start Printed Page 61845deletion in the preamble to the direct final notice of deletion. If we receive no adverse comment(s) on the direct final notice of deletion, we will not take further action. If we receive timely 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 adverse comments received on this 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 notice of deletion which is located in the Rules section of this Federal Register.
