Environmental Protection Agency.


Final rule.


The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 10 announces the deletion of the Harbor Oil Superfund Site (Site) located at 11535 North Force Avenue in Portland, Oregon, from the National Priorities List (NPL). The NPL, promulgated pursuant to section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) of 1980, as amended, is an appendix of the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP). The EPA and the State of Oregon, through the Department of Environmental Quality have determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA have been completed. However, this deletion does not preclude future actions under Superfund.


Effective Date: This action is effective June 5, 2014.

End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information


The site to be deleted from the NPL is: Harbor Oil Superfund Site located at 11535 North Force Avenue in Portland, Oregon. A Notice of Intent to Delete for this Site was published in the Federal Register (79 FR 19037-19039) on April 7, 2014.

The closing date for comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was May 16, 2014. No public comments were received. Since there were no comments, EPA is finalizing the deletion of the Site from the NPL. No responsiveness was prepared.

EPA maintains the NPL as the list of sites that appear to present a significant risk to public health, welfare, or the environment. Deletion from the NPL does not preclude further remedial action. Whenever there is a significant release from a site deleted from the NPL, the deleted site may be restored to the NPL without application of the hazard ranking system. Deletion of a site from the NPL does not affect responsible party liability in the unlikely event that future conditions warrant further actions.
