ACTION: Notice of deletion of the McAdoo Associates Superfund Site from

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region III announces 
the deletion of the McAdoo Associates Superfund Site (Site), located in 
McAdoo Borough, Schuylkill County, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, from 
the National Priorities List (NPL).
    The NPL, promulgated pursuant to section 105 of the Comprehensive 
Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, as 
amended (CERCLA), 33 U.S.C. 9605, is appendix B of the National Oil and 
Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP), 40 CFR part 300. 
EPA and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, through the Pennsylvania 
Department of Environmental Protection, have determined that the site 
no longer poses a significant threat to public health or the 
environment and that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA have 
been completed. Monitoring of on-site wells, and five-year reviews to 
ensure that the site remains protective of public health and the 
environment will continue to be conducted.

EFFECTIVE DATE: December 13, 2001.

    A Notice of Intent to Delete for this site was published in the 
Federal Register on October 3, 2001, 66 FR 48018. The closing date for 
comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was November 2, 2001. EPA 
received no comments during the comment period.
    EPA identifies sites that appear to present a significant risk to 
public health, welfare, or the environment and it maintains the NPL as 
the list of those sites. Any site deleted from the NPL remains eligible 
for Fund-financed remedial actions in the unlikely event that 
conditions at the site warrant such action. Section 300.425(e)(3) of 
the NCP states that Fund-financed actions 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.
