AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION:

Notice of deletion for the Industrial Latex Corp. Superfund Site from the National Priorities List.

SUMMARY:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region II Office announces the deletion of the Industrial Latex Corp. Superfund Site from the National Priorities List (NPL). The Industrial Latex site is located in the Borough of Wallington, Bergen County, New Jersey. The NPL constitutes appendix B to the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP), 40 CFR part 300, which EPA promulgated pursuant to section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), as amended. EPA and the State of New Jersey, through the Department of Environmental Protection, have determined that all appropriate remedial actions have been completed at the Industrial Latex site and no further fund-financed remedial action is appropriate under CERCLA. In addition, EPA and the State of New Jersey have determined that the remedial actions taken at the Industrial Latex site protect public health and the environment without any further monitoring or restriction.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

April 21, 2003.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

To be deleted from the NPL is: the Industrial Latex Corp. Superfund Site, Borough of Wallington, Bergen County, New Jersey.

A Notice of Intent to Delete for the Industrial Latex Corp. Site was published in the Federal Register on December 9, 2002 (67 FR 72888). The closing date for comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was March 1, 2003. EPA received no comments regarding this action. 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. As described in 300.425(e)(3) of the NCP, any site or portion thereof deleted from the NPL remains eligible for remedial actions in the unlikely event that conditions at the site warrant such action in the future. Deletion of a site from the NPL does not affect responsible party liability or impede agency efforts to recover costs associated with response efforts.
