(06/26/04) EPA is developing a model application/information request under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) that is focused specifically on the service station dealer industry. The model document is designed to be an efficient method for gathering the information necessary to decide which parties it should not treat as potentially responsible parties (PRPs) at a particular Superfund site. This new request would be used in lieu of a more general information request for any party EPA believes may be eligible for the service station dealer exemption. EPA published, in a February 3, 2004, Federal Register notice, the “Draft Model CERCLA Application/Information Request for Service Station Dealers,” which provides for a 60-day public comment period. The Agency will hold a public meeting to discuss questions and comments on the draft model on Wednesday, March 3, from 1 to 4 p.m. in Room 6226 of EPA’s Ariel Rios South Building, 1200 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W., Washington, D.C.
