Download as PDF 55774 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 184 / Friday, September 23, 2005 / Rules and Regulations 9. National Technology Transfer Advancement Act Section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer Advancement Act of 1995 (NTTAA), Public Law 104–113, section 12(d) (15 U.S.C. 272 note), directs EPA to use voluntary consensus standards in its regulatory activities unless doing so would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., materials specifications, test methods, sampling procedures, and business practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus bodies. The NTTAA directs EPA to provide Congress, through OMB, explanations when the Agency decides not to use available and applicable voluntary consensus standards. This final rule does not involve technical standards. Therefore, EPA did not consider the use of any voluntary consensus standards. the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of the rule in the Federal Register. A major rule cannot take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. This action is not a ‘‘major rule’’ as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). Accordingly, the requirements of Executive Order 12898 do not apply. List of Subjects in 40 CFR Part 228 Environmental protection, Water pollution control. Dated: September 14, 2005. J.I. Palmer, Jr., Regional Administrator for Region 4. In consideration of the foregoing, Subchapter H of Chapter I of Title 40 is amended as follows: I PART 228—[AMENDED] 1. The authority citation for part 228 continues to read as follows: I 10. Executive Order 12898 Executive Order 12898 requires that, to the greatest extent practicable and permitted by law, each Federal agency must make achieving environmental justice part of its mission. Executive Order 12898 provides that each Federal agency must conduct its programs, policies, and activities that substantially affect human health or the environment in a manner that ensures that such programs, policies, and activities do not have the effect of excluding persons (including populations) from participation in, denying persons (including populations) the benefits of, or subjecting persons (including populations) to discrimination under such programs, policies, and activities because of their race, color, or national origin. No action from this final rule would have a disproportionately high and adverse human health and environmental effect on any particular segment of the population. In addition, this rule does not impose substantial direct compliance costs on those communities. Authority: 33 U.S.C. 1412 and 1418. 2. Section 228.15 is amended by adding (h)(23) to read as follows: I § 228.15 Dumping sites designated on a final basis.

Any site deleted from the NPL remains eligible for fund-financed remedial actions in the unlikely event that conditions at the site warrant such action. Section 300.425(e)(3) of the NCP states that fund-financed actions may be taken at sites deleted from the NPL.

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Notice of Deletion of the Nutmeg Valley Road Site from the 
National Priorities List.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (``EPA'' or the 
``Agency'') New England (Region 1) announces the deletion of the Nutmeg 
Valley Road Site (``Site'') from the National Priorities List 
(``NPL''). The NPL constitutes appendix B of 40 part 300 which is the 
National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan 
(``NCP''), which EPA promulgated pursuant to section 105 of the 
Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act 
(``CERCLA'') of 1980, as amended. EPA and the Connecticut Department of 
Environmental Protection (``CT DEP'') have determined that the Site 
poses no significant threat to public health or the environment and, 
therefore, no further remedial measures pursuant to CERCLA are 
appropriate.

EFFECTIVE DATE: September 23, 2005.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Karen Lumino, Remedial Project 
Manager, at 617-918-1348, or, lumino.karen@epa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The site to be deleted from the NPL is:
    Nutmeg Valley Road Site, Wolcott, New Haven County, Connecticut.
    A Notice of Intent to Delete for this Site was published in the 
Federal Register on August 5, 2005 (70 FR 45334). The closing date for 
comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was September 6, 2005. No

Summary.
    EPA identifies sites that appear to present a significant risk to 
public health, welfare, or the environment and it maintains the NPL as 
the list of those sites. Any site deleted from the NPL remains eligible 
for fund-financed remedial actions in the unlikely event that 
conditions at the site warrant such action. Section 300.425(e)(3) of 
the NCP states that fund-financed actions may be taken at sites deleted 
from the NPL. Deletion of a site from the NPL does not affect 
responsible party liability or impede agency efforts to recover costs 
associated with response efforts.
