Proposed rule, reopening of comment period.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 4 issued a Notice of Intent to Delete the Martin-Marietta/Sodyeco Superfund Site from the National Priorities List (NPL) on September 30, 2011, (76 FR 60777). The NPL, promulgated pursuant to Section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA or Superfund) of 1980, as amended, is an appendix of the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP). EPA, with the concurrence of the State of North Carolina, through the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), has determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA, other than operation, maintenance, and five-year reviews, have been completed.
The rationale for deleting the Martin-Marietta/Sodyeco Superfund Site has not changed. The Federal Register notice for the proposed deletion (76 FR 60777) discusses this rationale in detail.
Comments concerning the proposed deletion may be submitted to EPA on or before December 19, 2011.
