Notice of Deletion
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 7 announces the deletion of the Annapolis Lead Mine Superfund Site (site) from the National Priorities List (NPL).
EPA and the state of Missouri, through the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, have determined that all appropriate response actions under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) at the site have been completed, other than operation and maintenance, monitoring, and five-year reviews. However, this deletion does not preclude future actions under Superfund.
The site is located east of Annapolis, Iron County, Missouri, on the east side of Iron County Road 138, approximately three-eighths of a mile north of Missouri State Highway 49. Lead was the main contaminant of concern.
The Notice of Deletion was published in the Federal Register (85 FR 41487) on July 10, 2020. Public comments were accepted during the 30-day public comment period, which began July 10, 2020, and ended Aug. 10, 2020. No public comments were received. The Docket Identification No. is EPA-HQ-SFUND-2004-0004 and the notice is available online.
