National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; 
National Priorities List: Deletion of the Sola Optical U.S.A., Inc. 
Superfund Site

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Proposed rule; notice of intent.


SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 9 is issuing 
a Notice of Intent to Delete the Sola Optical U.S.A., Inc. Superfund 
Site (Site) located in Petaluma, 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

Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP). The EPA and the 
State of California, through the Regional Water Quality Control Board--
San Francisco Bay Region, have determined that all appropriate response 
actions under CERCLA have been completed. However, this deletion does 
not preclude future actions under Superfund.

provided, unless the comment includes information claimed to be 
Confidential Business Information (CBI) or other information whose 
disclosure is restricted by statute. Do not submit information that you 
consider to be CBI or otherwise protected through http://www.regulations.gov or email. The http://www.regulations.gov Web site

identity or contact information unless you provide it in the body of 
your comment. If you send an email comment directly to EPA without 
going through http://www.regulations.gov, your email address will be 
automatically captured and included as part of the comment that is 
placed in the public docket and made available on the Internet. If you 
submit an electronic comment, EPA recommends that you include your name 
and other contact information in the body of your comment and with any 
disk or CD-ROM you submit. If EPA cannot read your comment due to 
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.


    All documents in the docket are listed in the http://www.regulations.gov index. Although listed in the index, some

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the ``Rules and Regulations'' Section of 
today's Federal Register, we are publishing a direct final Notice of 
Deletion of Sola Optical U.S.A., Inc. Superfund Site without prior 
Notice of Intent to Delete because we view this as a noncontroversial 
revision and anticipate no adverse comment. We have explained our 
reasons for this deletion in the preamble to the direct final Notice of 
Deletion, and those reasons are incorporated herein. If we receive no 
adverse comment(s) on this deletion action, we will not take further 
action on this Notice of Intent to Delete. If we receive adverse 
comment(s), we will withdraw the direct final Notice of Deletion, and 
it will not take effect. We will, as appropriate, address all public 
comments in a subsequent final Notice of Deletion based on this Notice 
of Intent to Delete. We 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.
