Federal Register Notice

6521 - 6522 Federal Register / Vol. 54, No. 28 / Monday, February 13, 1989 / Rules and Regulations


40 CFR Part 300

Presque Isle Superfund Site; National Priorities List Deletion

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
ACTION:  Notice of the deletion of a site from the National Priorities List (NPL).


The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announces the deletion of a site from the National Priorities List (NPL). The NPL is Appendix B to the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Contingency Plan (NCP), which EPA promulgated pursuant to section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA).

EPA and the State of Pennsylvania have determined that all appropriate Fund-financed responses under CERCLA have been implemented and that no further cleanup by responsible parties is appropriate. Moreover, EPA and the State have determined that remedial actions conducted at the site have been protective of public health, welfare, and the environment.


February 13, 1989.


Stephen R. Wassersug
Director, Hazardous Waste Management Division (3HW00)
Region III, Environmental Protection Agency
841 Chestnut Building
Philadelphia, PA 19107
(215) 597-9800


The EPA identifies sites that appear to present a significant risk to public health, welfare, or the environment and maintains the NPL as the list of those sites. Sites on the NPL may be the subject of Hazardous Substances Response Trust Fund (Fund) financed remedial actions. 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 300.66(c)(8) of the NCP states that fund-financed actions may be taken at sites deleted from the NPL.

The site EPA deletes from the NPL is: Presque Isle, Erie, Pennsylvania.

An explanation of the criteria for deleting sites from the NPL was presented in Section II of the July 27, 1988 Notice of Intent to Delete (50 FR 53448). A description of this site and how it met the criteria for deletion was presented in Section IV of that notice.

The closing date for comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was August 30, 1988. No comments were received.
