ACTION: Notice of deletion of the Pijak Farm Site from the National 
Priorities List.


SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region II announces 
the deletion of the Pijak Farm site in Ocean County, New Jersey from 
the National Priorities List (NPL). The NPL is Appendix B of 40 CFR 
Part 300, 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. EPA and the State of New 
Jersey have determined that responsible parties have implemented all 
appropriate response actions required. Moreover, EPA and the State of 
New Jersey have determined that remedial actions conducted at the site 
to date remain protective of public health, welfare, and the 

EFFECTIVE DATE: March 3, 1997.

ADDRESSES: Comprehensive information on this site is available for 
viewing at the Site Administrative Record Repository located at: New 
Egypt Library, 10 Evergreen Road, New Egypt, NJ 08533; Contact: Barbara 
Rothlein; Phone: (609) 758-7888; Hours: Monday (10 am to 5 pm and 7 to 
9 pm), Tuesday (10 am to 5 pm), Wednesday (1 to 5 pm), Thursday (1 to 5

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Joseph Gowers, Remedial Project 
Manager, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region II, 290 Broadway, 
19th Floor, New York, New York 10007-1866, (212) 637-4413.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The site to be deleted from the NPL is:
    Pijak Farm Site in Ocean County, New Jersey.
    A Notice of Intent to Delete for this site was published October 
25, 1996 (61 FR 55260). The closing date for comments on the Notice of 
Intent to Delete was November 25, 1995. EPA received no comments and 
therefore has not prepared a Responsiveness Summary.
    The EPA identifies sites which appear to present a significant risk 
to public health, welfare, or the environment and it maintains the NPL 
as the list of those sites. Sites on the NPL may be the subject of 
Hazardous Substance Response Trust Fund (Fund)--financed remedial 
actions. Section 300.425(e)(3) of the NCP states that Fund-financed 
actions may be taken at sites deleted from the NPL in the unlikely 
event that conditions at the site warrant such action. Deletion of a 
site from the NPL does not affect responsible party liability or impede 
agency efforts to recover costs associated with response efforts.
