AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
ACTION: Final rule.
SUMMARY: The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and
Liability Act of 1980 ("CERCLA" or "the Act"), as amended, requires
that the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency
Plan ("NCP") include a list of national priorities among the known
releases or threatened releases of hazardous substances, pollutants or
contaminants throughout the United States. The National Priorities List
("NPL") constitutes this list. The NPL is intended primarily to guide
the Environmental Protection Agency ("the EPA" or "the agency") in
determining which sites warrant further investigation. These further
investigations will allow the EPA to assess the nature and extent of
public health and environmental risks associated with the site and to
determine what CERCLA-financed remedial action(s), if any, may be
appropriate. This rule adds five sites to the General Superfund section
of the NPL.
DATES: The document is effective on May 9, 2016.
