ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

[FRL-7499-1]


Notice of Proposed Purchaser Agreement Pursuant to the 
Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 
1980, As Amended

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice; request for public comment.

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

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Comprehensive Environmental Response, 
Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, as amended by the Superfund 
Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986, (``CERCLA''), 42 U.S.C. 
9601-9675, notice is hereby given that a proposed prospective purchaser 
agreement (``Purchaser Agreement'') associated with the Wade/ABM 
Superfund Site, Chester City, Delaware County, Pennsylvania was 
executed by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of 
Justice and is now subject to public comment, after which the United 
States may modify or withdraw its consent if comments received disclose 
facts or considerations which indicate that the Purchaser Agreement is 
inappropriate, improper, or inadequate. The Purchaser Agreement would 
resolve certain potential EPA claims under sections 106 and 107 of 
CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. 9606, 9607, against the Chester Parking Authority 
(``Purchaser''). The settlement would require the Purchaser to, among 
other things, pay $1,000 to defray the United States' administrative 
costs incurred in preparing the Purchaser Agreement, upgrade the 
existing containment and storm water management controls, implement the 
institutional controls detailed in the Purchaser Agreement, and 
redevelop the subject property as a parking facility.
    For thirty (30) days following the date of publication of this 
notice, the Agency will receive written comments relating to the 
Purchaser Agreement. The Agency's response to any comments received 
will be available for public inspection at the U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency, Region III, 1650 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA 
19103.

DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before June 16, 2003.

information relating to the Purchaser Agreement are available for 
public inspection at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 
III, 1650 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103. A copy of the Purchaser
