[FRL-5530-3]


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

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Notice of Deletion of the Arsenic Trioxide Site from the 
National Priorities List (NPL).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announces the 
deletion of the Arsenic Trioxide Superfund Site (Site) in North Dakota, 
from the National Priorities List (NPL). The NPL is Appendix B of Title 
40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR) part 300 which is the 
National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP), 
promulgated pursuant to section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental 
Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), as amended. 
EPA and the State of North Dakota have determined that the Site poses 
no significant threat to public health or the environment and, 
therefore, no further remedial measures pursuant to CERCLA

[[Page 35138]]

are appropriate. Further, EPA and the State of North Dakota have 
determined that all appropriate response actions have been implemented 
at the Site and that no further cleanup by responsible parties is 
appropriate.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 5, 1996.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Erna Acheson, Site Manager, U.S. 
Environmental Protection Agency, Region 8, 999 18th Street, Suite 500, 
Mail Stop 8EPR-SR, Denver, Colorado 80202-2466, (303) 312-6762.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Site to be deleted from the NPL is:

    Arsenic Trioxide Superfund Site, North Dakota.

    A Notice of Intent to Delete for this Site was published October 2, 
1995 (60 FR 51395 (1995)). The closing date for comments on the Notice 
of Intent to Delete was November 1, 1995. No comments have been 
received.
    EPA identifies sites that appear to present a significant risk to 
public health, welfare, or the environment and maintains the NPL as a 
list of those sites. Any site deleted from the NPL remains eligible for 
Fund-financed remedial actions in the unlikely event that future 
conditions at the site warrant such action. Section 300.425 (e)(3). 
Deletion of a site from the NPL does not affect responsible party 
liability or impede agency efforts to recover costs associated with 
response efforts.
