The site to be deleted from the NPL is Reeser's Landfill Superfund Site, Upper Macungie Township, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania.
A notice of intent to delete for this site was published in the Friday, March 2, 1990 Federal Register, Vol. 55, No. 42 beginning on page 7507. A notification was also published in the Bethlehem Globe-Times, a local newspaper, on March 14, 1990. The closing date for comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was April 16, 1990. EPA received no comments.
The EPA identifies sites which appear to present a significant risk to public health, welfare, or the environment and it maintains the NPL as the list of those sites. Sites on the NPL may be the subject of Hazardous Substance Superfund (Fund-) financed remedial actions. Pursuant to Section 300.425(e)(3) of the NCP, Fund-financed actions may be taken at the sites deleted from the NPL should future conditions warrant such actions.
Deletion of a site from the NPL does not affect responsible party liability or impede agency efforts to recover costs associated with response efforts.
