AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Notice; request for public comment.

SUMMARY:

Notice is hereby given that a proposed prospective purchaser agreement modification (“PPA Modification”) associated with the Kansas City Structural Steel Superfund Site in Kansas City, Kansas was executed by the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) and the Department of Justice and is now subject to public comment, after which the United States may modify or withdraw its consent if comments received disclose facts or considerations which indicate that the PPA Modification is inappropriate, improper, or inadequate. The PPA Modification would replace the form of institutional controls (“ICs”) on the Site from a 1995 deed declaration to enrollment in the Kansas Environmental Use Controls (“EUC”) Program. The modification is associated with a proposed transfer of the property to a redeveloper to build a grocery and retail center on the Site. EPA will consider all comments and may modify or withdraw its consent to the PPA Modification if comments received disclose facts or considerations which indicate that the PPA Modification is inappropriate, improper, or inadequate. EPA's response to any comments received will be available for public inspection at the EPA Region 7 office located at 11201 Renner Boulevard, Lenexa, Kansas 66219.
