SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The site to be deleted from the NPL is: Cedartown Industries, Inc., Cedartown, Polk County, Georgia. A Notice of Intent to Delete for this Site was published in the Federal Register on May 26, 2006. (Document ID EPA_FRDOC_0001-1161).

The closing date for comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was June 25, 2006. 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 Fund-financed remedial actions in the unlikely event that conditions at the site warrant such action. Section 300.425(e)(3) of the NCP states that Fund-financed actions may be taken at sites deleted from the NPL. Deletion of a site from the NPL does not affect responsible party liability or impede agency efforts to recover costs associated with response efforts.
