Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Notice of intent to delete the Berkley Products Company Dump Priorities List Site from the National Priorities List; request for comments.

SUMMARY:

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region III announces its intent to delete Berkley Products Company Dump Superfund Site (Site), located in West Cocalico Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania from the National Priorities List (NPL) and requests public comment on this proposed action. The NPL constitutes Appendix B of 40 CFR Part 300, which is the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP), which EPA promulgated pursuant to Section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA).

EPA bases its proposal to delete the Site on the determination by EPA and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP), that all appropriate actions under CERCLA, other than operation and maintenance and five-year reviews, have been implemented to protect human health, welfare and the environment. However, this deletion does not preclude future actions under Superfund.

In the “Rules and Regulations” Section of today's Federal Register, EPA is publishing a direct final notice of deletion of Berkley Products Company Dump Superfund Site without prior notice of intent to delete because EPA views this as a noncontroversial revision and anticipates no adverse comment. EPA has explained its reasons for this deletion in the preamble to the direct final deletion. If EPA receives no adverse comment(s) on this notice of intent to delete or the direct final notice of deletion, EPA will not take further action. If EPA receives 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. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. For additional information, see the direct final notice of deletion which is located in the Rules section of this Federal Register.

DATES:

Comments must be received on or before February 20, 2007.
