Deletion from National Priorities List
A Notice of Intent to Delete for the Hatheway & Patterson Superfund Site was published in the Federal Register on December 1, 2017, Federal Register Number: 82 FR 56939-56940. The publication of this notice was intended to inform the public that EPA planned to delete the Site from the National Priorities List, and provide a 30-day public comment period on the proposed deletion. The closing date for comments on the Notice of Intent to Delete was January 2, 2018. Six (6) written comments were received. These comments are available in the Information Repositories. All public comments were considered in EPA’s final decision to delete the Site from the NPL. Read full press release.
The site was taken off of the Superfund list on February 16, 2018.
EPA and the State of Massachusetts have concluded that all appropriate Superfund-financed responses under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), have been implemented and that no further cleanup by responsible parties is appropriate for the Site. Moreover, EPA and the State have determined that cleanup actions conducted at the site to date continue to be protective of public health and the environment.
