Contents Notes
"Pursuant to Section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency published a proposed National Priorities List of 418 hazardous waste sites on December 30, 1982. On March 4, 1983, the Agency added to the proposed NPL the Times Beach, Missouri site. In response to the proposed NPL, the Agency received 348 public comments. The purpose of this document is to provide the detailed rationale that the Agency used to respond to these comments. In summary, 231 sites were commented on, 92 hazard ranking system scores were changed as a result of an analysis of the technical information submitted and new data developed, 7 sites were removed from the proposed list and 7 proposed sites are still under consideration."--Abstract.
