40 CFR Part 300


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

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Notice of deletion of the River Road Landfill Site from the 
National Priorities List (NPL).


SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region III announces 
the deletion of the River Road Landfill Site (Site) in Hermitage, 
Pennsylvania, from the National Priorities List (NPL). The NPL 
constitutes 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 as amended, (CERCLA). 
EPA and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, through the Pennsylvania 
Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP), have determined that 
the remedial action for the Site has been successfully implemented 
under CERCLA. For this Site, the selected remedy is protective of human 
health and the environment as long as deed restrictions and continued 
operation and maintenance of the Existing Treatment Scheme described in 
EPA's 1995 Record of Decision currently being implemented in accordance 
with the attached PADEP Post-Closure Plan (or modification as required 
and/or approved by PADEP or EPA), are continued.

EFFECTIVE DATE: January 29, 2004.

ADDRESSES: Comprehensive information on this Site is available through 
the public docket which is available for viewing at the Site 
information repositories at the following locations: U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency, Region III, Administrative Records, 1650 Arch 
Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19103. Telephone (215) 814-3157; and 
Buhl-Henderson Community Library, 11 North Sharpsville Avenue, Sharon, 
PA 16146.

Environmental Protection Agency, Region III, 1650 Arch Street, 
Philadelphia, PA 19103. Telephone 215-814-3222.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The site to be deleted from the NPL is: 
River Road Landfill Site.
    EPA published a Notice of Intent to Delete (NOID) the River Road 
Landfill Site from the NPL on September 26, 2003, in the Federal 
Register (65 FR 45013). The closing date for comments on the NOID was 
October 28, 2003. EPA did not receive any comments on the proposed 
deletion. Therefore, no responsiveness summary is necessary for 
attachment to this Notice of Deletion.
    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 these sites. As described in Sec. 300.425(e)(3) of the NCP, 
sites deleted from the NPL remain eligible for remedial actions in the 
unlikely event that future conditions at the site warrant such action.
    Deletion of a site from the NPL does not affect responsible party 
liability or impede EPA efforts to recover costs associated with 
response efforts.
