National Oil and Hazardous Substance Pollution Contingency Plan 
National Priorities List: Deletion of the Waste Management of Michigan-
Holland Lagoons Superfund Site

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Proposed rule, notice of intent

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 5 is issuing 
a Notice of Intent to Delete the Waste Management of Michigan-Holland 
Lagoons Superfund Site (Site) located in Ottawa County, Michigan 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). EPA and the 
State of Michigan, through the Michigan Department of Environmental 
Quality (MDEQ), have determined that all appropriate response actions 
under CERCLA have been completed. However, this deletion does not 
preclude future actions under Superfund.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of 
this issue of the Federal Register, we are publishing a direct final 
Notice of Deletion of the Waste Management of Michigan-Holland Lagoons 
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 Notice of Deletion and those reasons are incorporated 
herein. If we receive no adverse comment(s) on this deletion action, 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 Notice of Deletion 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 and Regulations section of this issue of 
the Federal Register.
