The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 5 is issuing a Notice of Intent to Delete the Former Beloit Corporation Research Center Property (RCP) of the Beloit Corporation Superfund Site (Site), in Rockton, Illinois, from the National Priorities List (NPL) and requests public comments on this proposed action. This partial deletion includes all media at the 20-acre RCP. The rest of the Site remains on the NPL and is not affected by this 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 Illinois, through the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, have determined that all appropriate response actions at the RCP identified under CERCLA have been completed, other than maintenance, monitoring and five-year reviews. However, this partial deletion does not preclude future actions under CERCLA.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the ``Rules and Regulations'' section of 
today's Federal Register, we are publishing a direct final Notice of 
Partial Deletion for the Former Beloit Corp. Research Center Property 
of the Beloit Corp. Superfund Site without prior Notification of Intent 
for Partial Deletion because EPA views this as a noncontroversial 
revision and anticipates no adverse comment. We have explained our 
reasons for this partial deletion in the preamble to the direct final 
Notice of Partial Deletion, and those reasons are incorporated herein. 
If we receive no adverse comment(s) on this partial deletion action, we 
will not take further action on this Notification of Intent for Partial 
Deletion. If we receive adverse comment(s), we will publish a timely 
withdrawal of the direct final partial deletion in the Federal Register 
informing the public that the partial deletion will not take effect. We 
will then, as appropriate, address all public comments in a subsequent 
final Notice of Partial Deletion based on this Notification of Intent 
for Partial Deletion. We will not institute a second comment period on 
this Notification of Intent for Partial Deletion. Any parties 
interested in commenting must do so at this time.
    For additional information, see the direct final Notice of Partial 
Deletion which is located in the Rules section of this Federal 
Register.
