National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency; National Priorities List

Summary:

The EPA Region VII announces the deletion of the White Farm Equipment Landfill site, Charles City, Iowa from the NPL. The NPL is appendix B of 40 CFR part 300 which is the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP), which EPA promulgated pursuant to section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), as amended. The EPA and the state of Iowa have determined that the site poses no significant threat to public health or the environment and, therefore, no further remedial measures pursuant to CERCLA are appropriate.

For further information contact:

Catherine Barrett, Remedial Project Manager, U.S. EPA, Region VII, Superfund Division, 901 North 5th Street, Kansas City, Kansas 66101, telephone (913) 551-7704, fax (913) 551-7063.

Supplementary information:

The site to be deleted from the NPL is: White Farm Equipment Landfill site, Charles City, Iowa.

A Notice of Intent to Delete for this site was published in the Federal Register on September 7, 2000 (65 FR 54190). The closing date for comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was October 10, 2000. No comments were received, therefore, EPA has not prepared a Responsiveness Summary. The EPA identifies sites that appear to present a significant risk to public health, welfare, or the environment and it maintains the NPL as the list of those sites. Any site deleted from the NPL remains eligible for fund-finances remedial actions in the unlikely event that conditions at the site warrant such action. Section 300.425(e)(3) of the NCP states that fund-financed actions may be taken at sites deleted from the NPL. Deletion of a site from the NPL does not affect responsible party liability orimpede agency efforts to recover costs associated with response efforts.
