[EPA-HQ-SFUND-2003-0010; FRL-9903-47-Region-7]

National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; 
National Priorities List: Partial Deletion of the Omaha Lead Superfund 

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 7 announces 
the deletion of 1,154 residential parcel(s) identified June 4, 2013 
Federal Register (FR) Notice of Intent to Partially Delete (NOIPD) of 
the Omaha Lead Superfund Site (Site) located in Omaha, Nebraska 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 and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP). 
This partial deletion pertains to the soil of 1,154 residential parcels 
identified in the June 4, 2013 FR NOIPD. The remaining residential 
parcels with soil lead levels at or above 400 parts per million (ppm) 
will remain on the NPL and are not being considered for deletion as 
part of this action. The EPA and the State of Nebraska, through the 
Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality, have determined that all 
appropriate response actions under CERCLA have been completed. However, 
the deletion of these parcels does not preclude future actions under 

DATES: This action is effective December 6, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The portion of the site to be deleted from 
the NPL is: 1,154 residential parcels located within the Final Focus 
Area of the Omaha Lead Site, Omaha, Nebraska. A Notice of Intent for 
Partial Deletion for this Site was published in the Federal Register on 
June 4, 2013. Parcel addresses are included as part of docket EPA-HQ-
1990-0010, which can be accessed through the http://www.regulations.gov 
Web site.
    The closing date for comments on the Notice of Intent for Partial 
Deletion was July 5, 2013. No public comments were received. EPA still 
believes the partial deletion action is appropriate.
    EPA maintains the NPL as the list of sites that appear to present a 
significant risk to public health, welfare, or the environment. 
Deletion of a site 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 portions of a 
site from the NPL does not affect responsible party liability, in the 
unlikely event that future conditions warrant further actions.
