The NCP establishes the criteria that EPA uses to delete sites from the NPL. In accordance with 40 CFR 300.425(e), sites may be deleted from the NPL where no further response is appropriate. Partial deletion of sites is in accordance with 40 CFR 300.425(e) and are consistent with the Notice of Policy Change: Partial Deletion of Sites Listed on the National Priorities List, 60 FR 55466, (November 1, 1995). The sites to be deleted and partially deleted from the NPL are listed in Table 1, including docket information containing reference documents with the rationale and data principally relied upon by the EPA to determine that the Superfund response is complete. The NCP permits activities to occur at a deleted site, or that media or parcel of a partially deleted site, including operation and maintenance of the remedy, monitoring, and five-year reviews. These activities for the site are entered in Table 1 in this SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section, if applicable, under Footnote such that; 1=site has continued operation and maintenance of the remedy, 2=site receives continued monitoring, and 3=site five-year reviews are conducted. As described in 40 CFR 300.425(e)(3) of the NCP, a site or portion of a site deleted from the NPL remains eligible for Fund-financed remedial action if future conditions warrant such actions.

Responsiveness Summaries were prepared. The Reich Farms site received an inquiry concerning the proposed deletion action. EPA responded to the inquiry by providing information available in the deletion docket to the E:\FR\FM\14SER1.SGM 14SER1 51012 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 175 / Tuesday, September 14, 2021 / Rules and Regulations commenter. Because the comment was not adverse to the proposed deletion of the Reich Farms site, EPA did not prepare a Responsiveness Summary. EPA still believes the deletion action is appropriate. EPA placed the comment and a memorandum explaining EPA’s response to the inquiry in the docket, EPA–HQ–SFUND–1983–0002, on https://www.regulations.gov, and in the Regional repository listed in the Addresses section. The Butler Mine Tunnel site received one written comment and EPA prepared a Responsiveness Summary. The commentor did not agree with EPA’s decision to delete the Butler Mine Tunnel Site from the NPL. The commentor did express concern that the storm drains in their town may be connected to boreholes which convey stormwater into underground mines. The commentor requested an investigation of their concerns, including the collection of air samples and use of camera system. Finally, the commentor expressed concern that cancer cases in their community are located near storm drains. The commentor did not specify what boreholes or underground mines they are concerned about, and did not provide their address/location, or the name of the town they refer to in their comment. The commentor did not offer any information specific to the Butler Mine Tunnel site to demonstrate that NPL deletion criteria were not met. EPA has determined that it is appropriate to proceed with the deletion because all response actions at the site are complete and the criteria for deletion have been met. A Responsiveness Summary was prepared and placed in the docket, EPA–HQ–SFUND–1987–0002, on https://www.regulations.gov, and in the Regional repository listed in the ADDRESSES section. The Eagle Mine site received one comment. The commenter requested clarification regarding the purpose of the proposed partial deletion of OU2, the Town of Gilman, and an explanation as to what differentiates the Gilman portion of OU2 from other sources of contamination at the site. The purpose of the proposed deletion is to document cleanup completion of the Eagle Mine Superfund Site OU2. All response requirements in the OU2 Record of Decision are implemented and as such, OU2 qualifies for partial deletion from the NPL. EPA has determined that it is appropriate to proceed with the deletion because all response actions at the site are complete and the criteria for partial deletion have been met. A Responsiveness Summary was prepared and placed in the docket, EPA–HQ– SFUND–1986–0005, on https:// www.regulations.gov, and in the Regional repository listed in the ADDRESSES section. For all other sites not specified above, no adverse comments were received. 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.

Deletions From the National Priorities List

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announces the 
deletion of nine sites and the partial deletion of eleven sites from 
the Superfund National Priorities List (NPL). The NPL, created under 
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 states, through their designated state agencies, have determined 
that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA, other than 
operation and maintenance, monitoring, and five-year reviews, where 
applicable, have been completed. However, this deletion does not 
preclude future actions under Superfund.

DATES: Effective on September 14, 2021.

ADDRESSES: 
    Docket: EPA has established a docket for this action under the 
Docket Identification included in Table 1 in the SUPPLEMENTARY 
INFORMATION section of this document. All documents in the docket are

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NPL, created under section 105 of 
CERCLA, as amended, is an appendix of the NCP. The NCP establishes the 
criteria that EPA uses to delete sites from the NPL. In accordance with 
40 CFR 300.425(e), sites may be deleted from the NPL where no further 
response is appropriate. Partial deletion of sites is in accordance 
with 40 CFR 300.425(e) and are consistent with the Notice of Policy 
Change: Partial Deletion of Sites Listed on the National Priorities 
List, 60 FR 55466, (November 1, 1995). The sites to be deleted and 
partially deleted from the NPL are listed in Table 1, including docket 
information containing reference documents with the rationale and data 
principally relied upon by the EPA to determine that the Superfund 
response is complete. The NCP permits activities to occur at a deleted 
site, or that media or parcel of a partially deleted site, including 
operation and maintenance of the remedy, monitoring, and five-year 
reviews. These activities for the site are entered in Table 1 in this 
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section, if applicable, under Footnote such 
that; 1=site has continued operation and maintenance of the remedy, 
2=site receives continued monitoring, and 3=site five-year reviews are 
conducted. As described in 40 CFR 300.425(e)(3) of the NCP, a site or 
portion of a site deleted from the NPL remains eligible for Fund-
financed remedial action if future conditions warrant such actions.

    For all sites proposed for deletion, the closing date for comments 
in the proposed rule was June 14, 2021. The EPA received comments on 
six of the sites included for deletion or partial deletion in this 
final rule. The Bennett Stone Quarry site and the Lemon Lane Landfill 
site each received one public comment supportive of the proposed 
deletion. The Neal's Landfill (Bloomington) site received two public 
comments supportive of the deletion. Because no adverse comment was 
received for these three sites, no Responsiveness Summaries were 
prepared.
    The Reich Farms site received an inquiry concerning the proposed 
deletion action. EPA responded to the inquiry by providing information 
available in the deletion docket to the

[[Page 51012]]

commenter. Because the comment was not adverse to the proposed deletion 
of the Reich Farms site, EPA did not prepare a Responsiveness Summary. 
EPA still believes the deletion action is appropriate. EPA placed the 
comment and a memorandum explaining EPA's response to the inquiry in 
the docket, EPA-HQ-SFUND-1983-0002, on https://www.regulations.gov, and 
in the Regional repository listed in the Addresses section.
    The Butler Mine Tunnel site received one written comment and EPA 
prepared a Responsiveness Summary. The commentor did not agree with 
EPA's decision to delete the Butler Mine Tunnel Site from the NPL. The 
commentor did express concern that the storm drains in their town may 
be connected to boreholes which convey stormwater into underground 
mines. The commentor requested an investigation of their concerns, 
including the collection of air samples and use of camera system. 
Finally, the commentor expressed concern that cancer cases in their 
community are located near storm drains. The commentor did not specify 
what boreholes or underground mines they are concerned about, and did 
not provide their address/location, or the name of the town they refer 
to in their comment. The commentor did not offer any information 
specific to the Butler Mine Tunnel site to demonstrate that NPL 
deletion criteria were not met. EPA has determined that it is 
appropriate to proceed with the deletion because all response actions 
at the site are complete and the criteria for deletion have been met. A 
Responsiveness Summary was prepared and placed in the docket, EPA-HQ-
SFUND-1987-0002, on https://www.regulations.gov, and in the Regional 
repository listed in the ADDRESSES section.
    The Eagle Mine site received one comment. The commenter requested 
clarification regarding the purpose of the proposed partial deletion of 
OU2, the Town of Gilman, and an explanation as to what differentiates 
the Gilman portion of OU2 from other sources of contamination at the 
site. The purpose of the proposed deletion is to document cleanup 
completion of the Eagle Mine Superfund Site OU2. All response 
requirements in the OU2 Record of Decision are implemented and as such, 
OU2 qualifies for partial deletion from the NPL. EPA has determined 
that it is appropriate to proceed with the deletion because all 
response actions at the site are complete and the criteria for partial 
deletion have been met. A Responsiveness Summary was prepared and 
placed in the docket, EPA-HQ-SFUND-1986-0005, on https://www.regulations.gov, and in the Regional repository listed in the 
ADDRESSES section.
    For all other sites not specified above, no adverse comments were 
received.
    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.
