ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 300

[FRL-6957-7]


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

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice of intent to delete the Brodhead Creek Superfund Site 
from the National Priorities List.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region III is 
issuing a notice of intent to delete the Brodhead Creek Superfund Site 
(Site) located in the Borough of Stroudsburg, Monroe County, 
Pennsylvania, from the National Priorities List (NPL) and requests 
public comments on this notice of intent. The NPL, promulgated pursuant 
to section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, 
Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) of 1980, as amended, is found 
at Appendix B of 40 CFR part 300 of the National Oil and Hazardous 
Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP). The EPA and the 
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, through the Pennsylvania Department of 
Environmental Protection (PADEP), have determined that all appropriate 
response actions under CERCLA, other

[[Page 28140]]

than operation and maintenance and five-year reviews, have been 
completed. However, this deletion does not preclude future actions 
under Superfund. In the ``Rules and Regulations'' Section of today's 
Federal Register, we are publishing a direct final notice of deletion 
of the Brodhead Creek Superfund Site without prior notice of intent to 
delete because we view this as a noncontroversial revision and 
anticipate no adverse comment. We have explained our reasons for this 
deletion in the preamble to the direct final deletion. If we receive no 
adverse comment(s) on this notice of intent to delete or the direct 
final notice of deletion, we will not take further action on this 
notice of intent to delete. If we receive adverse comment(s), we will 
withdraw the direct final notice of deletion and it will not take 
effect. We will, as appropriate, address all public comments in a 
subsequent final deletion notice based on this notice of intent to 
delete. We will not institute a second comment period on this notice of 
intent to delete. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at 
this time. For additional information, see the direct final notice of 
deletion which is located in the Rules section of this Federal 
Register.

DATES: Comments concerning this Site must be received by June 21, 2001.
