40 CFR Part 300

[EPA-HQ-SFUND-1986-0005; FRL-9927-73-Region 5]


National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; 
National Priorities List Deletion of the Burrows Sanitation Superfund 
Site

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Proposed rule; notice of intent.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 5 is 
issuing a Notice of Intent to Delete the Burrows Sanitation Superfund 
Site located in Hartford Township, Van Buren County, Michigan 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 Michigan, through the Michigan Department of Environment 
Quality (MDEQ), have determined that all appropriate response actions 
under CERCLA have been completed. However, this deletion does not 
preclude future actions under Superfund.

consider to be CBI or otherwise protected through http://www.regulations.gov or email. The http://www.regulations.gov Web site

submit an electronic comment, EPA recommends that you include your name

technical difficulties and cannot contact you for clarification, EPA 
may not be able to consider your comment. Electronic files should avoid 
the use of special characters, any form of encryption, and be free of 
any defects or viruses.
    Docket: All documents in the docket are listed in the http://www.regulations.gov index. Although listed in the index, some

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of 
today's Federal Register, we are publishing a direct final Notice of 
Deletion of the Burrows Sanitation Superfund Site without prior Notice 
of Intent to Delete because we view this as a noncontroversial decision 
and anticipate no adverse comment. We have explained our reasons for 
this deletion in the preamble to the direct final Notice of Deletion, 
and those reasons are incorporated herein. If we receive no adverse 
comment(s) on this deletion action, we will not take further action on 
this Notice of Intent to Delete. If we receive adverse comment(s), we 
will withdraw the direct final Notice of Deletion, and it will not take 
effect. We will, as appropriate, address all public comments in a 
subsequent final Notice of Deletion based on this Notice of Intent to 
Delete. We will not institute a second comment period on this Notice of 
Intent to Delete. Any parties interested in commenting must do so at 
this time.
    For additional information, see the direct final Notice of Deletion
