40 CFR Part 300

[EPA-HQ-SFUND-1990-0010; FRL-9902-80-Region 9]


National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; 
National Priorities List: Partial Deletion of the El Toro Marine Corp 
Air Station Superfund Site

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Proposed rule; notice of intent.

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

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region IX is issuing 
a Notice of Intent to Delete portions of the El Toro Marine Corp Air 
Station Superfund Site (Site) located in Irvine, California, 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 
State of California, through the California Department of Toxic 
Substances Control, have determined that all appropriate response 
actions at these identified parcels under CERCLA have been completed. 
However, this deletion does not preclude future actions under 
Superfund.
    This partial deletion pertains to all Site media, including soil 
and groundwater, of parcels I-A, II-A, III-A, II-J, II-Q, II-S, II-T, 
III-C, I-C, II-U, I-B, I-E, I-G, I-H, I-I, I-J, I-L, I-M, I-P, II-G, 
II-I, II-P, III-D, I-K, I-N, I-O, I-S, II-E, II-L, II-M, II-R, I-Q, I-
R, II-B, II-K, and II-O. The remaining areas of the Site will remain on 
the NPL and are not being considered for deletion as part of this 
action. Maps identifying the area to be deleted and the area of the 
Site to remain on the NPL are available for review in the partial 
deletion docket.

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 El Toro Marine Corp Air Station 
Superfund Site 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.
