ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY

40 CFR Part 300

[FRL-6168-1]


National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; 
National Priorities List

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice of partial deletion of the Bypass 601 Groundwater 
Contamination Superfund Site, Concord, Cabarrus County, North Carolina 
from the National Priorities List.

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

SUMMARY: The EPA Region 4 announces the deletion of Source Areas 1, 2, 
3, 7, 8, 9, and 10 of the Bypass 601 Groundwater Contamination 
Superfund Site from the National Priorities List (NPL), in Appendix B 
of 40 CFR part 300 which is the National Oil and Hazardous Substances 
Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP) which EPA promulgated pursuant to 
section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, 
and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), as amended. EPA and the State of 
North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources have 
determined that Source Areas 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, and 10 pose no 
significant threat to public health or the environment, and therefore, 
under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and 
Liability Act (CERCLA) further remedial measures are not appropriate. 
This deletion does not preclude future action under Superfund.

EFFECTIVE DATE: September 28, 1998.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Giezelle Bennett, Remedial Project 
Manager, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 4, North Site 
Management Branch, 61 Forsyth Street, S.W., Atlanta, Georgia 30303-
3014, (404) 562-8824.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Site affected by this partial deletion 
from the NPL is: Bypass 601 Groundwater Contamination Superfund Site in 
Cabarrus County, North Carolina.
    A Notice of Intent to Partially Delete for this Site was published 
on August 17, 1998 (63 FR 43898). The closing date for comments on the 
Notice of Intent to Partially Delete was September 16, 1998. EPA 
received no comments.
    EPA identifies sites that appear to present a significant risk to 
the public health, welfare, and the environment and it maintains the 
NPL as the list of those sites. Any site or portion thereof deleted 
from the NPL remains eligible for Fund-financed remedial actions in the 
future. Section 300.425(e)(3) of the NCP states that Fund-financed 
action may be taken at sites deleted from the NPL. Deletion of a site 
from the NPL does not affect responsible party liability or impede 
agency efforts to recover costs associated with response efforts.
