Type: Notice
Date: 2005-06-17
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
Pursuant to the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), EPA's Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT) is giving notice that it intends to establish a new System of Records (SOR) under the Federal Lead-Based Paint Program. This system of records (LPSOR), comprising information stored in both electronic and hard paper formats, contains information on individuals who have applied for certification to conduct lead-based paint activities, who are students taking classes in lead-based paint activities, or who have been identified on behalf of firms which conduct or which receive accreditation to provide training in lead-based paint activities. EPA administers lead-based paint certification and accreditation programs in states, Indian tribal areas, and territories that do not have EPA authorization to administer such programs. Applicants interested in certification and accreditation must submit a complete application package and necessary fees for EPA approval.
National Oil and Hazardous Substance Pollution Contingency Plan National Priorities List
Document Number: 05-11828
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-06-17
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 3 is issuing a notice of intent to delete MM&G Superfund Site (Site) located in Frackville, Schuylkill County, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, from the National Priorities List (NPL) and requests public comments on this notice of intent. The NPL, promulgated pursuant to section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) of 1980, as amended, is found at appendix B of 40 CFR part 300 which is the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP). The EPA and the State of Pennsylvania, through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP), have determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA have been completed. However, this deletion does not preclude future actions under Superfund. In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of today's Federal Register, EPA is publishing a direct final notice of deletion of MM&G Superfund Site without prior notice of intent to delete because EPA views this as a noncontroversial revision and anticipate no adverse comment. EPA has explained its reasons for this deletion in the preamble to the direct final notice of deletion. If no adverse comment(s) are received on this notice of intent to delete or the direct final notice of deletion, EPA will not take further action on this notice of intent to delete. If adverse comment(s) are received, EPA will withdraw the direct final notice of deletion and it will not take effect. EPA will, as appropriate, address all public comments in a subsequent final deletion notice based on this notice of intent to delete. EPA will not institute a second comment period on this notice of intent to delete. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time. For additional information, see the direct final notice of deletion which is located in the Rules section of this Federal Register.

Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 3 is publishing a direct final notice of deletion of the MM&G, Superfund Site (Site), located in Frackville, Schuylkill County, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, 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 appendix B of 40 CFR part 300, which is the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP). This direct final deletion is being published by EPA with concurrence of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP), because EPA has determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA have been completed and, therefore, further remedial action pursuant to CERCLA is not appropriate.
