40 CFR Part 300

[EPA-HQ-SFUND-2005-0011; FRL-9900-68-Region 4]

National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; 
National Priorities List: Deletion of the Koppers Co., Inc. (Florence 
Plant) Superfund Site

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 4 announces 
the deletion of the Koppers Co., Inc. (Florence Plant) Superfund Site 
(Site) located in Florence, South Carolina, from the National 
Priorities List (NPL). 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 

[[Page 56612]]

Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP). The EPA and the 
State of South Carolina, through the South Carolina Department of 
Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC), have determined that no 
further response activities under CERCLA are appropriate. However, this 
deletion does not preclude future actions under Superfund or other 
regulatory authority.

DATES: This action is effective September 13, 2013.

Docket Identification No. EPA-HQ-SFUND-2005-0011. All documents in the

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The site to be deleted from the NPL is: 
Koppers Co., Inc. (Florence Plant) Superfund Site (Site) located in 
Florence, South Carolina. A Notice of Intent to Delete for this Site 
was published in the Federal Register on April 24, 2013.
    The closing date for comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was 
May 24, 2013. No public comments were received during the comment 
period. Therefore, a responsiveness summary was not prepared and placed 
in both the docket, EPA-HQ-SFUND-2005-0011, on www.regulations.gov, and 
in the local repositories listed above.
    The EPA maintains the NPL as the list of sites that appear to 
present a significant risk to public health, welfare, or the 
environment. Deletion from the NPL does not preclude further remedial 
action. Whenever there is a significant release from a site deleted 
from the NPL, the deleted site may be restored to the NPL without 
application of the hazard ranking system. Deletion of a site from the 
NPL does not affect responsible party liability in the unlikely event 
that future conditions warrant further actions.
