40 CFR Part 300

[EPA-R03-SFUND-2010-0436; FRL-9177-9]


National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; 
National Priorities List: Intent to Partially Delete the Letterkenny 
Army Depot Southeastern (SE) Area and Letterkenny Army Depot Property 
Disposal Office (PDO) Area Superfund Sites

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region III is 
issuing a Notice of Intent to Delete portions of the Letterkenny Army 
Depot Southeastern (SE) Area and Letterkenny Army Depot Property 
Disposal Office (PDO) Area (Sites), located in Chambersburg, Franklin 
County, Pennsylvania, from the National Priorities List (NPL) and 
requests public comments on this proposed action. The NPL, promulgated 
pursuant to section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, 
Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) of 1980, as amended, is an 
appendix 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 at these 
identified parcels under CERCLA, other than operation, maintenance, and 
five-year reviews, have been completed. However, this deletion does not 
preclude future actions under Superfund.
    This partial deletion pertains to the soil and groundwater of 
parcels 24, 27, 28, 2-53, 2-53L, 2-54, 2-54L, 2-70, 2-70L, 3-89, 3-90, 
and 3-91. All other parcels within the site boundaries of the 
Letterkenny Army Depot SE and PDO Areas will remain on the NPL and are 
not being considered for deletion as part of this action.

consider to be CBI or otherwise protected through http://www.regulations.gov or e-mail. The http://www.regulations.gov Web site

your comment. If you send an e-mail comment directly to EPA without 
going through http://www.regulations.gov, your e-mail address will be 
automatically captured and included as part of the comment that is 
placed in the public docket and made available on the Internet. If you 
submit an electronic comment, EPA recommends that you include your name 
and other contact information in the body of your comment and with any 
disk or CD-ROM you submit. If EPA cannot read your comment due to 
technical difficulties and cannot contact you for clarification, EPA 
may not be able to consider your comment. Electronic files should avoid 
the use of special characters, any form of encryption, and be free of 
any defects or viruses.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the ``Rules and Regulations'' Section of 
today's Federal Register, we are publishing a direct final Notice of 
Partial Deletion for portions of the Letterkenny Army Depot SE and PDO 
Areas without prior Notice of Intent for Partial Deletion because EPA 
views this as a noncontroversial revision and anticipates no adverse 
comment. We have explained our reasons for this partial deletion in the 
preamble to the direct final Notice of Partial Deletion, and those 
reasons are incorporated herein. If we receive no adverse comment(s) on 
this partial deletion action, we will not take further action on this 
Notice of Intent for Partial Deletion. If we receive adverse 
comment(s), we will withdraw the direct final Notice of Partial 
Deletion and it will not take effect. We will, as appropriate, address 
all public comments in a subsequent final Notice of Partial Deletion 
based on this Notice of Intent for Partial Deletion. We will not 
institute a second comment period on this Notice of Intent for Partial 
Deletion. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at this time.
    For additional information, see the direct final Notice of Partial 
Deletion which is located in the Rules section of this Federal 
Register.
