National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; 
National Priorities List: Deletion of the Cannon Engineering Corp. 
Superfund Site

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Direct final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 1 is 
publishing a direct final Notice of Deletion of the Cannon Engineering 
Corp. (CEC), Superfund (Site), located in Bridgewater, Massachusetts, 
from the National Priorities List (NPL). 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). This direct final deletion is being published 
by EPA with the concurrence of the State of Massachusetts, through the 
Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP), because 
EPA has determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA, 
have been completed. However, this deletion does not preclude future 
actions under Superfund.

DATES: This direct final deletion is effective September 24, 2013 
unless EPA receives adverse comments by August 26, 2013. If adverse 
comments are received, EPA will publish a timely withdrawal of the 
direct final deletion in the Federal Register informing the public that 
the deletion will not take effect.

I. Introduction

    EPA Region 1 is publishing this direct final Notice of Deletion of 
the Cannon Engineering Corp. (CEC) Superfund (Site), from the National 
Priorities List (NPL). The NPL constitutes Appendix B of 40 CFR part 
300, which is the Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency 
Plan (NCP), which EPA promulgated pursuant to section 105 of the 
Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act 
(CERCLA) of 1980, as amended. EPA maintains the NPL as the list of 
sites that appear to present a significant risk to public health, 
welfare, or the environment. Sites on the NPL may be the subject of 
remedial actions financed by the Hazardous Substance Superfund (Fund). 
As described in 300.425(e)(3) of the NCP, sites deleted from the NPL 
remain eligible for Fund-financed remedial actions if future conditions 
warrant such actions.
    Because EPA considers this action to be noncontroversial and 
routine, this action will be effective September 24, 2013 unless EPA 
receives adverse comments by August 26, 2013. Along with this direct 
final Notice of Deletion, EPA is co-publishing a Notice of Intent to 
Delete in the ``Proposed Rules'' section of the Federal Register. If 
adverse comments are received within

[[Page 45065]]

the 30-day public comment period on this deletion action, EPA will 
publish a timely withdrawal of this direct final Notice of Deletion 
before the effective date of the deletion, and the deletion will not 
take effect. EPA will, as appropriate, prepare a response to comments 
and continue with the deletion process on the basis of the Notice of 
Intent to Delete and the comments already received. There will be no 
additional opportunity to comment.
    Section II of this document explains the criteria for deleting 
sites from the NPL. Section III discusses procedures that EPA is using 
for this action. Section IV discusses the Cannon Engineering Corp. 
(CEC) Superfund Site and demonstrates how it meets the deletion 
criteria. Section V discusses EPA's action to delete the Site from the 
NPL unless adverse comments are received during the public comment 
period.

II. NPL Deletion Criteria

    The NCP establishes the criteria that EPA uses to delete sites from 
the NPL. In accordance with 40 CFR 300.425(e), sites may be deleted 
from the NPL where no further response is appropriate. In making such a 
determination pursuant to 40 CFR 300.425(e), EPA will consider, in 
consultation with the state, whether any of the following criteria have 
been met:
    i. Responsible parties or other persons have implemented all 
appropriate response actions required;
    ii. all appropriate Fund-financed response under CERCLA has been 
implemented, and no further response action by responsible parties is 
appropriate; or
    iii. the remedial investigation has shown that the release poses no 
significant threat to public health or the environment and, therefore, 
the taking of remedial measures is not appropriate.
    Pursuant to CERCLA section 121(c) and the NCP, EPA conducts five-
year reviews to ensure the continued protectiveness of remedial actions 
where hazardous substances, pollutants, or contaminants remain at a 
site above levels that allow for unlimited use and unrestricted 
exposure. EPA conducts such five-year reviews even if a site is deleted 
from the NPL. EPA may initiate further action to ensure continued 
protectiveness at a deleted site if new information becomes available 
that indicates it is appropriate. Whenever there is a significant 
release from a site deleted from the NPL, the deleted site may be 
restored to the NPL without application of the hazard ranking system.

III. Deletion Procedures

    The following procedures apply to deletion of the Site:
    (1) EPA consulted with the state of Massachusetts prior to 
developing this direct final Notice of Deletion and the Notice of 
Intent to Delete co- published today in the ``Proposed Rules'' section 
of the Federal Register.
    (2) EPA has provided the state 30 working days for review of this 
notice and the parallel Notice of Intent to Delete prior to their 
publication today, and the state, through the Massachusetts Department 
of Environmental Protection (MassDEP), has concurred on the deletion of 
the Site from the NPL.
    (3) Concurrently with the publication of this direct final Notice 
of Deletion, a notice of the availability of the parallel Notice of 
Intent to Delete is being published in a major local newspaper, the 
Bridgewater Independent. The newspaper notice announces the 30-day 
public comment period concerning the Notice of Intent to Delete the 
Site from the NPL.
    (4) The EPA placed copies of documents supporting the proposed 
deletion in the deletion docket and made these items available for 
public inspection and copying at the Site information repositories 
identified above.
    (5) If adverse comments are received within the 30-day public 
comment period on this deletion action, EPA will publish a timely 
notice of withdrawal of this direct final Notice of Deletion before its 
effective date and will prepare a response to comments and continue 
with the deletion process on the basis of the Notice of Intent to 
Delete and the comments already received.
    Deletion of a site from the NPL does not itself create, alter, or 
revoke any individual's rights or obligations. Deletion of a site from 
the NPL does not in any way alter EPA's right to take enforcement 
actions, as appropriate. The NPL is designed primarily for 
informational purposes and to assist EPA management. Section 
300.425(e)(3) of the NCP states that the deletion of a site from the 
NPL does not preclude eligibility for future response actions, should 
future conditions warrant such actions.

IV. Basis for Site Deletion

    The following information provides EPA's rationale for deleting the 
Site from the NPL:

Site Background and History

    The Cannon Engineering Corp. Superfund site (CEC), CERCLIS ID No. 
MAD079510780, is a 7-acre area of land and is located in a small 
industrial park in the western part of the Town of Bridgewater, 
Massachusetts. The site is located approximately 31 miles south from 
the city of Boston Massachusetts. Prior to 1969, the industrial park 
consisted of a wooded lowland bordered to the north, south, and east by 
rural agricultural land. Current land use around the site consists of 
industrial development in the immediate vicinity to the north and east, 
and a wooded lowland to the south and west, and agricultural and 
residential development in the outlying areas.
    The CEC facility is one of the four separate but related sites 
which form the Cannons Site Group. The others are Cannons Plymouth 
Harbor located in Plymouth, Massachusetts; Tinkham's Garage in 
Londonderry, New Hampshire; and Gilson Road in Nashua, New Hampshire. 
All four sites are being handled under one enforcement effort.
    CEC first purchased the parcel of land at the Site in November, 
1974. The property was developed by them to handle, store, and 
incinerate chemical wastes. These activities occurred frequently at the 
Site between 1974 and November, 1980 when operations at the Site ceased 
after the MassDEP (then called the Department of Environmental Quality 
Engineering) revoked CEC's Waste License, citing document falsification 
and other waste reporting violations.
    Over 700 drums and approximately 155,000 gallons of liquid waste 
and sludge in bulk storage were left behind on-site by CEC. Between 
1980 and 1982, MassDEP and EPA conducted Site inspections, performed 
sampling and analyses and confirmed the presence of chemical 
contamination at the Site. Several tanks and drums were also observed 
to be leaking. In order to alleviate the problem of leaking 
contamination and wastes left on-site, the MassDEP performed a removal 
action. In October 1982, MADEP's contractor, Jet Line Services, Inc., 
removed approximately 155,000 gallons of sludge and liquid wastes that 
were stored in tanks and approximately 711 drums from the Site. A 
subsequent removal was conducted by the group of Potentially 
Responsible Parties (the ``PRP Group'') in June1988. The PRP Group 
removed the bulk contents of an underground tank, a septic tank, 3 
tanker trailers and small (5 gallon or less) containers from laboratory 
and storage areas at the Site.
    In December of 1982, the Site was proposed for inclusion on the 
NPL, (49 FR 40320) and the site was made final to the NPL on September 
8, 1983, (51 FR 21054).

[[Page 45066]]

    The property was redeveloped in November of 1996, when Osterman 
Propane, Inc., relocated its propane storage and distribution 
operations to the Site.

Remedial Investigation

    The RI/FS was completed in May of 1987 and evaluated contamination 
present in air, soils, sediment, surface water and groundwater. Past 
operations of the facilities at the CEC Site have resulted in the 
contamination of localized areas of soil, sediments, surface water, and 
groundwater by chemical wastes.
    The findings of the RI/FS determined the following: (1.) Soils, 
ranging from 4 inches to 22 feet below ground surface, were 
contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs), semi-organic 
compounds (SVOCs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and pesticides. 
(2.) Ambient air sampling detected the presence of VOCs. (3.) 
Groundwater sampling indicated the presence of VOCs, SVOCs and no PCBs 
nor pesticides. (4.) Sediment sampling results indicated the presence 
of VOCs, SVOCs and no PCBs and no pesticides. (5.) Surface water 
sampling results indicated the presence of VOCs, SVOCs and no PCBs nor 
pesticides. For specific details see the report entitled: Final Report, 
Remedial Investigation, Cannons Engineering Corporation Site, 
Bridgewater, Massachusetts, May 1987.

The Selected Remedy

    In March of 1988, EPA issued a Record of Decision (ROD) for the 
cleanup of the Site. The cleanup actions were divided into two operable 
units. The major components of the cleanup remedies for the site 
included:
1. Management of Migration (MOM)
    The MOM portion of the remedy included a twenty year groundwater 
monitoring program to assure that contamination above the Maximum 
Contaminant Levels (MCLs) did not migrate off-site, and to also assure 
that contaminant levels on-site naturally attenuated. The 1988 ROD 
estimated that groundwater cleanup target levels, based on the 
ingestion of on-site groundwater, would be achieved within 15 to 20 
years. The Year 20 groundwater sampling event was completed in 
September of 2010. The management of migration remedy also required 
that institutional controls be placed on the property to restrict the 
use of groundwater at the Site. The institutional controls were 
implemented in 1991 in the form of a deed restriction on the 
properties.
2. Source Control
    In summary, the source control portion of the remedy provided for 
fencing the entire Site to restrict access, onsite thermal aeration of 
soils contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and treatment 
of PCB contaminated soils offsite by incineration.
    In addition, onsite buildings and tanks were decontaminated and 
removed, and soils under those structures were sampled, along with 
other soil locations. Any contaminated soils that posed a threat to 
human health and the environment, were remediated via one of the above 
mentioned thermal treatment technologies.
    All remedial actions, construction activities and cleanup levels 
related to the Source Control Operable Unit were completed and 
achieved. Therefore, on September 30, 1991, EPA prepared an Interim 
Close-out Report (ICOR) for the Site and it is included into the 
Administrative Record.
    The remedial action objectives, as set forth in the 1988 ROD, 
identified to mitigate threats to public health are as follows:
     Prevent direct contact with contaminated soils throughout 
the site
     prevent ingestion of contaminated soils, standing water in 
the wet area
     prevent ingestion of contaminated groundwater
     prevent exposure to contaminants in the buildings, 
aboveground and underground tanks, and associated structures
    The remedial action objectives identified to mitigate threats to 
the environment are as follows:
     Prevent the exposure of wildlife to contaminated soil, 
sediments, and standing water in the wet area
     prevent future wetlands contamination from surface water 
runoff and discharge
    There are no ROD amendments for the Site; however an Explanation of 
Significant Differences (ESD) was signed in May of 2013. The ESD was 
issued to explain a modification to the selected cleanup levels for the 
MOM portion of the remedy, as set forth in the March 31, 1988, ROD for 
the Site. The MOM groundwater remedy was selected in 1988, before the 
1993 revisions to the Massachusetts Contingency Pan (MCP). The MCP is 
the clean up regulations for the Massachusetts Department of 
Environmental Protection (MassDEP). Prior to 1993, the MCP classified 
all groundwater within the Commonwealth as a Class 1, or a potable 
aquifer. Therefore in the 1988 ROD the ingestion of groundwater was 
assumed to be a potential exposure pathway and Maximum Contaminant 
Levels (MCLs) were applicable. However, in 1993, MassDEP revised the 
MCP, which now established new groundwater categories for purpose of 
remediating waste sites. MassDEP conducted a reevaluation of site 
groundwater in the fall of 2012 and determined that the site is no 
longer located in a Class 1 or a potable aquifer. Because the ingestion 
of site groundwater is no longer considered a potential exposure 
pathway, MCL's are no longer applicable nor appropriate for cleanup 
goals at the Site.
    Due to the reclassification of groundwater use at the Site, in 
March of 2012, EPA's risk assessor conducted a cumulative human health 
and ecological risk assessment. This assessment was performed on all of 
the remaining contaminated groundwater using the annual groundwater 
data from 2009, 2010 and 2011. The conclusions of the cumulative risk 
assessment determined that that there is no unacceptable human health 
risks because there is no foreseeable use of this groundwater for 
drinking water purposes at the site. The EPA risk assessment memo is 
included as attachment 2 to the May 2013 ESD, which is included in the 
Administrative Record for the Site.
    Furthermore because the MOM and SC remedial actions are complete 
and both human health and ecological risks are within EPA's acceptable 
range, EPA prepared a Final Close Out Report (FCOR), dated June 2013. 
The FCOR is included in the administrative record and deletion docket 
for the site and a copy was also sent to the Bridgewater public 
library.

Response Actions

    As required in the ROD, fencing of the perimeter to restrict 
uncontrolled access was completed in December 1988. As part of the 
Remedial Design, an asbestos inspection was performed and asbestos 
containing materials (ACMs) were found in several of the former onsite 
buildings. The proper removal and offsite disposal of all ACMs was 
completed in the spring of 1990. Decontamination, demolition and 
disposal of all on-site structures, including buildings, storage tanks, 
piping and an electrical transformer, was completed in February of 
1990.
    Approximately 397 tons of PCB contaminated soils were excavated 
transported and properly incinerated offsite. Post-excavation 
confirmatory samples verified that PCB concentrations in the remaining 
soils were below the 9 ppm cleanup level.

[[Page 45067]]

The PCB soil excavations were backfilled with a clean fill and this 
action was completed in August of 1990.
    Between June 11, 1990 and October 10, 1990, a total of 11,330 tons 
of VOC contaminated soils were excavated and thermally aerated on-site 
using the Low Temperature Thermal Aeration Unit (LTTA). Post-excavation 
confirmatory sampling verified that VOC contaminated soil removal to 
the remedial design excavation levels was achieved. The VOC treated 
soils were replaced on site and used as part of the fill material in 
the excavations.
    The MOM component of the remedy included the installation of 6 new 
overburden monitoring wells and 3 new bedrock monitoring wells for the 
long term monitoring of groundwater quality. Long term groundwater, 
surface water, sediment and seep monitoring began in 1990 and were 
completed in September of 2010.
    The final field activities involved Site restoration that included 
wetland restoration of 35,000 square feet of wetlands and then topsoil 
material was added and then re-graded and seeded. The entire upland 
area, approximately 99,000 square feet, was backfilled with the treated 
VOC and SVOC soils and was also re-graded and seeded. Drainage and 
erosion controls were implemented as part of the final Site restoration 
activities. All remedial action activities were complete by July of 
1991, when the roll-off containers were removed from the Site and all 
of the final grading, seeding, and landscaping activities were 
completed.

Cleanup Goals

    The soil and groundwater cleanup levels were established in part, 
from utilizing an Organic Leaching Model, as well as expressions for 
partitioning and retardation of contaminant movement relative to 
groundwater. The cleanup levels were set to be within EPA's acceptable 
risk range of 1 x 10-4 to 1 x 10-6 and additional 
details may be found in the Remedial Action Report for the Site, dated 
October 1991.
    Overall, a total of 11,330 tons of VOC and SVOC impacted soils were 
excavated and thermally aerated onsite and 396.65 tons of PCB impacted 
soils were excavated and incinerated off-site. These removal quantities 
were sufficient to satisfy the specified clean-up levels as verified by 
the confirmatory sampling programs and is documented in the September 
1991 Interim Final Closeout Report, EPA.

Operation and Maintenance

    Long Term groundwater, sediment, surface water and seep sampling 
was conducted at the site for twenty years, per the 1988 ROD. These 
sampling efforts were completed in September of 2010. EPA will continue 
to conduct future Five Year Reviews at the site to ensure the remedies 
remain protective of both human health and the environment. The PRP 
Group shall adhere to and maintain compliance with the institutional 
controls/deed restrictions for the Site. At some point in the future, 
the PRP Group may need to properly abandon the groundwater monitoring 
wells as directed by EPA, with MassDEP concurrence.
    Institutional Controls (ICs), in the form of a deed restriction, 
was placed on the properties which comprise the Site. The ICs state the 
following:
     The Site is restricted to certain types of municipal or 
town uses, until EPA and MassDEP provide certification that other uses 
are permissible, i.e., no residential use.
     No excavation is allowed from below the level of the 
groundwater table, until EPA and MassDEP provide certification 
otherwise.
     No groundwater may be extracted from any point on the site 
nor shall it serve as a drinking water supply or be used for any other 
purpose until EPA and MassDEP provide certification otherwise.
    These ICs were placed on the Site in 1991 and were recorded and 
filed with the Plymouth Massachusetts Registry of Deeds. The ICs 
currently remain in place and were verified in the 2010 Five Year 
Review.

Five-Year Reviews

    Five Year Reviews have been competed for the Site in 1995, 2000, 
2005, and 2010.
    All of these Five Year Review determined that:
     The source control remedy, as documented by EPA, was 
complete in 1991, and judged by EPA to still be protective
     The groundwater remedy for the Cannon Engineering Corp. 
Site is expected to be protective of human health and the environment 
upon completion, and in the interim, exposure pathways that could 
result in unacceptable risks are being controlled through institutional 
controls.
    The next Five Year Review will be completed in 2015.

Community Involvement

    In 1982, EPA released a community relations plan which kept the 
local citizens group and other interested parties informed through 
activities such as informational meetings, community updates, press 
releases and public meetings. A hard copy of the 2010 Five Year Review 
was provided to the Bridgewater Town Clerk and Health Agent. A notice 
announcing the Five Year Review was placed in a local newspaper of 
general circulation. A notice announcing EPA's intent to delete the 
site from the NPL was placed in a local newspaper, the Bridgewater 
Independent.

Determination That the Site Meets the Criteria for Deletion in the NCP

    The implemented remedy achieves the degree of cleanup specified in 
the ROD for all pathways of exposure. All selected remedial action 
objectives and clean-up levels are consistent with agency policy and 
guidance. No further Superfund responses are needed to protect human 
health and the environment at the Site.
    The National Contingency Plan (NCP) specifies that EPA may delete a 
site from the NPL if ``all appropriate responsible parties or other 
persons have implemented all appropriate response actions required'' or 
``all appropriate fund financed response under CERCLA has been 
implemented and no further response action by responsible parties is 
appropriate''. EPA, with the concurrence of the Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts through the MassDEP by a letter dated May 22, 2013, 
believes these criteria for deletion have been satisfied. Therefore EPA 
is proposing the deletion of the Site from the NPL. All of the 
completion requirements for the Site have been met as described in the 
Cannons Engineering Final Closeout Report (FCOR), dated June 2013.

V. Deletion Action

    The EPA, with concurrence of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts 
through the MassDEP, has determined that all appropriate response 
actions under CERCLA, other than Five Year Reviews have been completed. 
Therefore, EPA is deleting the Site from the NPL.
    Because EPA considers this action to be noncontroversial and 
routine, EPA is taking it without prior publication. This action will 
be effective September 24, 2013 unless EPA receives adverse comments by 
August 26, 2013. If adverse comments are received within the 30-day 
public comment period, EPA will publish a timely withdrawal of this 
direct final notice of deletion before the effective date of the 
deletion, and it will not take effect. EPA will prepare a

[[Page 45068]]

response to comments and continue with the deletion process on the 
basis of the notice of intent to delete and the comments already 
received. There will be no additional opportunity to comment.
