National Oil and Hazardous Substance Pollution Contingency Plan National Priorities List, 49353-49354 [E8-19420]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 163 / Thursday, August 21, 2008 / Rules and Regulations Five-Year Review EPA conducted five-year reviews of the Site in 2001 and 2006. In the reviews, EPA concluded that all remedial actions are complete. The next five-year review will be conducted in 2011. The latest five-year review called for the placement of restrictive covenants on both Site parcels and as outlined above, this is complete. The review also called for an analysis of the impacts of the revised Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for arsenic on the Site remedy. EPA has determined that the revised arsenic MCL has limited impact on the protectiveness of the Site remedy because the goal of the groundwater collection at the Site is to contain any off-site migration of Site groundwater and the only performance standard for the collected groundwater are the discharge requirements placed by the Sanitary District. As the District continues to allow discharge from the Site without the need for pretreatment and the Site groundwater is effectively controlled by the collection trench, the protectiveness of the Site remedy is not impacted by the revised MCL for arsenic and this will be further documented in the next five-year review. Community Involvement Public participation activities have been satisfied as required in CERCLA section 113(k), 42 U.S.C. 9613(k), and CERCLA section 117, 42 U.S.C. 9617. Documents in the deletion docket which EPA relied on for recommendation of the deletion of this Site from the NPL are available to the public in the information repositories, and at www.regulations.gov. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with RULES Determination That the Site Meets the Criteria for Deletion in the NCP The NCP (40 CFR 300.425(e)) states that a site may be deleted from the NPL when no further response action is appropriate. EPA, in consultation with the State of Indiana, has determined that the responsible parties have implemented all response actions required. V. Deletion Action EPA, with concurrence of the State of Indiana through the Indiana Department of Environmental Management, has determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA (other than operation, maintenance, monitoring and five-year reviews) have been completed. Therefore, EPA is deleting the Site from the NPL. Because EPA considers this action to be noncontroversial and routine, EPA is taking it without prior publication. This action will be effective October 20, 2008 VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:30 Aug 20, 2008 Jkt 214001 unless EPA receives adverse comments by September 22, 2008. If adverse comments are received within the 30day public comment period, EPA will publish a timely withdrawal of this direct final Notice of Deletion before the effective date of the deletion, and it will not take effect. EPA will prepare a response to comments and continue with the deletion process on the basis of the notice of intent to delete and the comments already received. There will be no additional opportunity to comment.
