[FRL-9710-8]

Notice of Proposed Prospective Purchaser Agreement Pursuant to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980, as Amended ("CERCLA"), and the Solid Waste Disposal Act

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
ACTION: Notice; request for public comment.
SUMMARY: Sunoco, Inc. (R&M), a subsidiary of Sunoco, Inc., currently operates the Property as a crude oil refinery to distribute, store and process petroleum. PES R&M LLC has proposed to purchase the Property and continue crude oil refining and related operations at the Property.

The Property consists of two formerly separate refining operations known as "Point Breeze" and "Girard Point." EPA issued a RCRA Corrective Action Permit under RCRA Section 3004(u), 42 U.S.C. Section 6924(u), for the Point Breeze operation in 1988 and for the Girard Point operation in 1989. Both permits require Sunoco, Inc. (R&M) to, among other things, investigate solid waste management units ("SWMUs") and evaluate remedy options. Both permits have been extended by EPA until final remedy selection. After PES R&M LLC purchases the Property, Sunoco, Inc. (R&M) will be required to complete its RCRA corrective action obligations at the Property.

DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before thirty (30) days after the date of publication of this notice.
