Federal Register Notice

11949 Federal Register / Vol. 54, No. 55 / Thursday, March 23, 1989 / Rules and Regulations


40 CFR Part 300

National Oil and Hazardous Substances Contingency Plan; National Priorities List Update

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.
ACTION:  Notice of deletion of site from the National Priorities List.


The Environmental Protection agency (EPA) announces the deletion of the Wade (ABM) 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), as amended. EPA and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania have determined that no further fund-financed remedial action is appropriate at this site, and that actions taken to date are protective of public health, welfare, and the environment.


March 23, 1989.


Rich Watman, RPM
EPA, Region III
Pennsylvania Remedial Response Section (3HW21), Hazardous Waste Management Division
841 Chestnut Building, 6th Floor
Philadelphia, PA 19107
(215) 597-3155


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 does not affect responsible party liability or impede agency efforts to recover costs associated with response efforts.

The site EPA deletes from the NPL is:

1. Wade (ABM), Delaware County, PA.

An explanation of the criteria for deleting this site from the NPL was presented in section II of the December 21, 1988 Notice of Intent to Delete (53 FR 48662). A description of the site and how it meets 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 January 3, 1989. No comments were received. An additional notice was placed in a local newspaper announcing the Intent to Delete and extending the comment period to February 23, 1989. No comments were received.
