Environmental Protection Agency.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 1 announces the deletion of the Old Southington Landfill Superfund Site (Site) located in Southington, Connecticut, 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 Connecticut, through the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (CTDEEP), have determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA, other than operation and maintenance, monitoring, and five-year reviews, have been completed. However, this deletion does not preclude future actions under Superfund.
This action is effective September 12, 2018.
Docket: EPA has established a docket for this action under Docket Identification No. EPA-HQ-SFUND-2005-0011. All documents in the docket are listed on the http://www.regulations.gov website. Although listed in the index, some information is not publicly available, i.e., Confidential Business Information or other information whose disclosure is restricted by statute.

Start Supplemental Information
The site to be deleted from the NPL is: the Old Southington Landfill Superfund Site located at Old Turnpike Road, Southington, Connecticut. A Notice of Intent to Delete for this Site was published in the Federal Register (83 FR 34513) on July 20, 2018.
The closing date for comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was August 20, 2018. No public comments were received. Therefore, a responsiveness summary was not prepared and not placed in the docket, EPA-HQ-SFUND-2005-0011, on www.regulations.gov, nor in the local repositories listed above. EPA still believes the deletion action is still appropriate.
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.
