40 CFR Part 300


National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; 
National Priorities List

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Notice of Deletion for the Vestal Water Supply Well 4-2 
Superfund Site from the National Priorities List.


SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announces the 
deletion of the Vestal Water Supply Well 4-2 (Vestal 4-2) Site in 
Vestal, Broome County, New York from the National Priorities List 
(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. EPA and the State of New York have determined 
that the Vestal 4-2 Site poses no significant threat to public health 
or the environment and, therefore, no further remedial measures 
pursuant to CERCLA are appropriate.

EFFECTIVE DATE: September 30, 1999.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lorenzo Thantu, Remedial Project 
Manager, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region II, 290 Broadway, 
20th Floor, New York, NY 10007, (212) 637-4240 or by electronic mail at 
[email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Site to be deleted from the NPL is: 
Vestal Water Supply Well 4-2, Vestal, Broome County, New York.
    A Notice of Intent to Delete for this Site was published in the 
Federal Register on August 11, 1999 (64 FR 43641). The closing date for 
comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was September 10, 1999. EPA 
received no comments.
    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. Sites on the NPL may be the subject of 
Hazardous Substance Response Trust (Fund)-financed remedial actions. 
Pursuant to 40 CFR 300.425(e)(3) of the NCP, any site deleted from the 
NPL remains eligible for Fund-financed remedial actions in the unlikely 
event 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.
