40 CFR Part 300

[FRL-6317-6]


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

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Notice of deletion of the Williams Pipe Line Disposal Pit Site 
from the National Priorities List (NPL).

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

SUMMARY: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announces the 
deletion of the Williams Pipe Line Disposal Pit Site (Site) in 
Minnehaha County, Sioux Falls, South 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 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 in 
consultation with the state of South Dakota has determined that the 
Site poses no significant threat to public health or the environment 
and, therefore, no further remedial measures pursuant to CERCLA are 
appropriate.

EFFECTIVE DATE: April 2, 1999.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dennis Jaramillo, U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency, Region 8, 999 18th Street, Suite 500, Mailcode: 
8EPR-SR, Denver, CO 80202, telephone (303) 312-6580.

SUPPLEMEMTARY INFORMATION: The site to be deleted from the NPL is: the 
Williams Pipe Line Disposal Pit in Minnehaha County, Sioux Falls, South 
Dakota.
    A Notice of Intent to Delete for this site was published on 
November 25, 1998, (63 FR 65161). The closing date for comments on the 
Notice of Intent to Delete was January 4, 1999. No comments were 
received during the comment period. In response, since no comments were 
received EPA is going forward with the Site deletion from the NPL.
    EPA identifies sites that appear to present a significant risk to 
public health, welfare, and 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, NCP 
Sec. 300.425(e)(3). Deletion of a site from the NPL does not affect the 
responsible party of liability or impede agency efforts to recover cost 
associated with response efforts.
