National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; 
National Priorities List: Deletion of the Craig Farm Drum Superfund 

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule; notice of intent.


SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region III is 
issuing a Notice of Intent to Delete the Craig Farm Drum Superfund Site 
(Site) located in Perry Township, Armstrong County, Pennsylvania, 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 
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, through the Pennsylvania Department of 
Environmental Protection (PADEP), have determined that all appropriate 
response actions under CERCLA, other than operation, maintenance, and 
Five Year Reviews, have been completed. However, this deletion does not 
preclude future actions under Superfund.

DATES: Comments must be received by August 29, 2013.

consider to be CBI or otherwise protected through http://www.regulations.gov or email. The http://www.regulations.gov Web site

your comment. If you send an email comment directly to EPA without

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.
    Docket: 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 the Craig Farm Drum 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

[[Page 45906]]

of Intent to Delete. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at 
this time.
