[EPA-HQ-SFUND-1983-0002; FRL-9901-59-Region 2]


National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; 
National Priorities List: Deletion of the Ludlow Sand & Gravel 
Superfund Site

AGENCY: United States Environmental Protection Agency.

[[Page 60810]]


ACTION: Proposed rule; notice of intent.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 2 is issuing 
a Notice of Intent to Delete the Ludlow Sand & Gravel Superfund Site 
(Site), located in Paris, New York, 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 New York, through the New 
York State Department of Environmental Conservation, have determined 
that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA, other than 
monitoring and maintenance and five-year reviews, have been completed. 
However, the deletion does not preclude future action under Superfund.

DATES: Comments must be received by November 1, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the ``Rules and Regulations'' Section of 
today's Federal Register, EPA is publishing a direct final Notice of 
Deletion of the Site without prior Notice of Intent to Delete because 
EPA views this as a noncontroversial revision and anticipate no adverse 
comment. EPA has explained its reasons for this deletion in the 
preamble to the direct final Notice of Deletion. If EPA receives no 
adverse comment(s) on this Notice of Intent to Delete or the direct 
final Notice of Deletion, EPA will proceed with the deletion without 
further notice on this Notice of Intent to Delete. If EPA receives 
adverse comment(s), EPA will withdraw the direct final Notice of 
Deletion and it will not take effect. EPA will, as appropriate, address 
all public comments in a subsequent final Notice of Deletion based on 
this Notice of Intent to Delete. EPA 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
