Notice of intent to delete the Petrochem Recycling Corp./Ekotek, Inc., Superfund Site from the National Priorities List.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 8 is issuing a Notice of Intent to Delete the Petrochem Recycling Corp./Ekotek, Inc., Superfund Site (Site) located in Salt Lake City, Utah, from the National Priorities List (NPL) and requests public comments on this Notice. 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, the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan Start Printed Page 27955(NCP). The EPA and the State of Utah, through the Utah Department of Environmental Quality (UDEQ), have determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA have been completed at the Site. However, this deletion does not preclude future actions under Superfund if determined necessary by EPA.
In the “Rules and Regulations” section of today's Federal Register, EPA is publishing a Direct Final Notice of Deletion of the Petrochem Recycling Corp./Ekotek, Inc., Superfund Site without prior notice of intent to delete because EPA views this as a non-controversial action. EPA has explained its reasons for this deletion in the preamble to the Direct Final Notice of Deletion. If EPA receives no significant adverse comment(s) on the Direct Final Notice of Deletion, EPA will not take further action on this Notice of Intent to Delete and deletion of the Site will proceed. If EPA receives significant adverse comment(s), EPA will withdraw the Direct Final Notice of Deletion and it will not take effect. EPA will, as appropriate, address all public comments in a subsequent final deletion notice based on this Notice of Intent to Delete. EPA will not institute a second comment period on this Notice of Intent to Delete. Any parties interested in commenting must do so within the time frame noted below. For additional information, see the Direct Final Notice of Deletion, located in the “Rules and Regulations” section of this Federal Register.
