A Notice of Intent to Delete for the Site was published in the Federal Register on February 18, 2004 (69 FR 7613). The closing date for comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was March 19, 2004. 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.
