The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 3 announces the deletion of the Recticon/Allied Steel Corp Superfund Site (Site) located in East Coventry Twp, PA, 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 Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, have determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA, have been completed. However, this deletion does not preclude future actions under Superfund.
This action is effective September 14, 2018.

The site to be deleted from the NPL is: Recticon/Allied Steel Corp Superfund Site, East Coventry Twp, PA. A Notice of Intent to Delete for this Site was published in the Federal Register (83 FR 33186-33191) on July 17, 2018.
The closing date for comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was August 16, 2018. No adverse or site-specific public comments were received. As a result, a responsiveness summary was not 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.
