ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 300

[FRL-7547-8]


National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan 
National Priorities List

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice of intent to delete the Resin Disposal Superfund Site 
from the National Priorities List.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region III is 
issuing a notice of intent to delete the Resin Disposal Superfund Site 
(Site) located in the Borough of Jefferson, Allegheny 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). EPA and the Commonwealth 
of Pennsylvania, through the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental 
Protection (PADEP), have determined that all appropriate response 
actions under CERCLA, other 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 
Resin Disposal 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 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 September 22, 
2003.
