40 CFR Part 300

[FRL-5804-9]


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

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Notice of deletion of the Minot Landfill Site from the National 
Priorities List (NPL).

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announces the 
deletion of the Minot Landfill Superfund Site (Site) located in Ward 
County, North Dakota, from the National Priorities List (NPL).

[[Page 15412]]

The NPL is Appendix B of 40 CFR Part 300 which is 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 State of North Dakota have determined that the Site, as remediated, 
poses no significant threat to public health or the environment and, 
therefore, no further remedial measures pursuant to CERCLA are 
appropriate.

EFFECTIVE DATE: April 1, 1997.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Erna Acheson Waterman, 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: 
Minot Landfill Superfund Site, Ward County, North Dakota.
    A Notice of Intent to Delete for this Site was published December 
26, 1996 (61 FR 67975). The closing date for comments on the Notice of 
Intent to Delete was January 27, 1997. No comments have been received.
    EPA identifies sites that appear to present a significant risk to 
public health, welfare, or the environment and it 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 
conditions at the site warrant such action in the future. Section 
300.425 (e)(3) of the NCP. Deletion of a site from the NPL does not 
affect responsible party liability or impede agency efforts to recover 
costs associated with response efforts.
