Notice of Deletion of Cox Road Dump Site from the State Superfund Registry
The executive director (ED) of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ or commission) is issuing this notice of deletion for the Cox Road Dump (the Site) from its proposed-for-listing status on the state registry, the list of state Superfund sites. The state registry lists the contaminated sites which may constitute an imminent and substantial endangerment to public health and safety or the environment due to a release or threatened release of hazardous substances into the environment.
The Site was originally proposed for listing on the state registry in the February 10, 2006, issue of the Texas Register (31 TexReg 907). The Site, including all land, structures, appurtenances, and other improvements, is approximately 83 acres located one mile north of FM 1413 on the east side of County Road 491 (Cox Road), Dayton, Liberty County, Texas. The geographic coordinates of the site are 29 degrees 58 minutes 30.84 seconds North latitude, 94 degrees 56 seconds 12.83 minutes West longitude. In addition, the Site includes any areas where hazardous substances are located as a result, either directly or indirectly, of releases of hazardous substances from the Site.
In accordance with 30 TAC §335.344(b), the commission held public meetings to receive comments on the intended deletion of the Site on June 29, 2006, in Dayton, Texas, and on August 8, 2006, in Austin, Texas. Comments which were received into the record were addressed at the public meetings by the commission or by written response. The complete public file, including a transcript of the public meetings and the written response, may be viewed during regular business hours at the commission's Records Management Center, Building E, First Floor, 12100 Park 35 Circle, Austin, Texas 78753, telephone numbers (800) 633-9363 or (512) 239-2920. Fees are charged for photocopying file information.
Because the Site has been accepted into the TCEQ Voluntary Cleanup Program, it may now be deleted from the state registry as provided by Texas Health and Safety Code §361.189(a) and 30 TAC §335.344(c).
In accordance with §361.188(d) of the Texas Health and Safety Code, a notice will be filed in the real property records of Liberty County, Texas, stating that the Site has been deleted from the state registry.
All inquiries regarding the deletion of the Site should be directed to Mr. Bruce McAnally, Community Relations, telephone number 1-800-633-9363, extension 2141.
