SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The site to be deleted from the NPL is: Naval Magazine Indian Island, Port Hadlock, Washington. A Notice of Intent to Delete for this Site was published in the Federal Register on April 15, 2005 (70 FR 19915). The closing date for comments was May 16, 2005. No comments were received therefore, EPA has not prepared a Responsiveness Summary.

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. Any site deleted from the NPL remains eligible for remedial actions in the unlikely 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.
