Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION:

Notice of intent to delete the Bailey Waste Disposal Superfund Site from the National Priorities List.

SUMMARY:

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 6 is issuing a notice of intent to delete the Bailey Waste Disposal Superfund Site located in Bridge City, Texas 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). The EPA and the State of Texas, through the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), have determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA, other than operation and Start Printed Page 45405maintenance and five-year reviews, have been completed. However, this deletion does not preclude future actions under Superfund.

In the “Rules and Regulations” Section of this Federal Register, we are publishing a direct final notice of deletion of the Bailey Waste Disposal Superfund Site without prior notice of intent to delete because we view this as a noncontroversial revision and anticipate no adverse comment. We have explained our reasons for this deletion in the direct final deletion. If we receive no adverse comment(s) on this notice of intent to delete or the direct final notice of deletion, we will not take further action on this notice of intent to delete. If we receive adverse comment(s), we will withdraw the direct final notice of deletion, and it will not take effect. We will, as appropriate, address all public comments in a subsequent final deletion notice based on this notice of intent to delete. We will not institute a second comment period 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 located in the Rules section of this Federal Register.

DATES:

Comments concerning this Site must be received by September 13, 2007.
