National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; National Priorities List: Deletion of the Ludlow Sand & Gravel Superfund Site

Agency

United States Environmental Protection Agency.

Action

Proposed rule; notice of intent.

Summary

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 2 is issuing a Notice of Intent to Delete the Ludlow Sand & Gravel Superfund Site (Site), located in Paris, New York, 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). EPA and the State of New York, through the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, have determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA, other than monitoring and maintenance and five-year reviews, have been completed. However, the deletion does not preclude future action under Superfund.

Dates

Comments must be received by November 1, 2013.
