The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region III announces the deletion of a portion of the North Penn Area 6 Superfund Site (Site) located in Lansdale Borough, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, from the National Priorities List (NPL). The deletion affects approximately 6.5 acres located at 135 East Hancock Street (the ``Administrative Parcel''). 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). This partial deletion pertains to the soils and groundwater of the Administrative Parcel portion of the Site. The other portions of the Site will remain on the NPL and are not being considered for deletion as part of this action. The EPA and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP), have determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA, other than monitoring and five-year reviews, have been completed. However, the deletion of the Administrative Parcel does not preclude future actions under Superfund.
