ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 300

[FRL-7586-7]


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

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Proposed notice of intent to delete the Follansbee Superfund 
Site from the National Priorities List.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region III is 
issuing a notice of intent to delete the Follansbee Superfund Site 
(Site), Follansbee, WV, 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 State of 
West Virginia, through the Department of Environmental Protection, have 
determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA 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 
Follansbee 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 December 17, 
2003.
