determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA have been 
completed. However, this deletion does not preclude future actions

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The site to be deleted from the NPL is: 
Harbor Oil Superfund Site located at 11535 North Force Avenue in 
Portland, Oregon. A Notice of Intent to Delete for this Site was 
published in the Federal Register (79 FR 19037-19039) on April 7, 2014.
    The closing date for comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was 
May 16, 2014. No public comments were received. Since there were no 
comments, EPA is finalizing the deletion of the Site from the NPL. No 
responsiveness was prepared.
    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.
