Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Withdrawal of Direct Final Rule.


On March 12, 2014, EPA published a Notice of Intent to Delete (79 FR 13967) and a direct final Notice of Deletion (79 FR 13882) for the O'Connor Superfund Site from the National Priorities List. The EPA is withdrawing the Final Notice of Deletion due to adverse comments that were received during the public comment period. After consideration of the comments received, if appropriate, EPA will publish a Notice of Deletion in the Federal Register based on the parallel Notice of Intent to Delete and place a copy of the final deletion package, including a Responsiveness Summary, if prepared, in the Site repositories.


This withdrawal of the direct final action published March 12, 2014 (79 FR 13882) is effective as of May 2, 2014.
