AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Notice of intent to delete the Rochester Property Superfund Site from the National Priorities List.

SUMMARY:

EPA Region 4 is issuing a notice of intent to delete the Rochester Property Superfund Site (Site) located in Travelers Rest, South Carolina, from the National Priorities List (NPL) and requests public comments on this notice of intent. 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 which is the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP). EPA and the State of South Carolina, through the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC), have determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA have been completed. However, this deletion does not preclude future actions under Superfund.

In the Final Rules section of this Federal Register, the EPA is approving the direct final notice of deletion of the Rochester Property Superfund Site without prior proposal because the Agency views this as a noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final notice. If no significant, material, and adverse comments are received in response to this notice, no further activity is contemplated. If EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final notice will be withdrawn and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final notice based on this proposed notice. The EPA will not institute a second comment period on this document. Any parties interested in commenting on this document should do so at this time.

DATES:

Comments concerning this Site must be received by September 10, 2007.
