                     A.  The Transition of Administrations
                     and the Status of EPA's Rulemakings
                      The regulations listed in this agenda
                     are required by law or are necessary to
                     interpret the law. While this is the first
                     regulatory agenda of the Bush
                     Administration, the timing is such that
                     our efforts won't be fully reflected in the
                     agenda until the October edition.
                     B. What Principles and Objectives
                     Guide EPA in Developing  Regulations?
                      The quality of the science, economic,
                     and policy analysis that underlie EPA
                     regulations is vital to the credibility of
                     EPA decisions and ultimately our
                     effectiveness in protecting human
                     health and the environment.
                     Additionally, continued testing  and
                     adoption of new environmental
                     protection methods must be a central
                     tenet in environmental problem solving.
                     A well managed regulatory process and
                     a strong commitment to innovative
                     solutions will ensure that the significant
                     environmental  improvements that we
                     all want to achieve are cost-effective,
                     fair and fully protective.
                       Much of the success over the last 31
                     years and seven administrations in
                     cleaning up the Nation's water,  air, and
                     land is attributable to the system of
                     Federal and State regulation that has
                     directed and coordinated private
                     investment in pollution control  and
                     prevention. While regulation will
                     remain an important tool to implement
                     environmental  policy, it is not the only
                     one. Instead, EPA must increasingly act
                     as  an innovator, educator, and leader in
                     administering a broad set of new tools
                     Including new methods to design and
                     administer regulations —that engage all
                     segments of our society in responsive
                     behaviors that protect the  environment
                     while promoting  appropriate economic
                     growth. For example, we have worked
                     with businesses and  community leaders
                     to  develop more than 40 voluntary
                     partnership programs to help achieve
                     environmental  objectives with the
                     greatest possible efficiency. For more
information about these programs visit:
www.epa.gov/partners.
  EPA's regulatory process must ensure
that the Nation's environmental
protection system produces the best
outcomes at an acceptable cost, where
cost considerations are appropriate.
Appropriate scientific, economic and
policy analyses must be planned at early
stages in the regulatory development
process so that senior Agency decision
makers understand the benefits and
costs of policy options from which to
choose. Additionally, it is important
that we continue to apply new methods
to protect the  environment-fey building
flexibility into regulations up front,
through nonregulatory approaches
where effective, by creating strong
partnerships with States, and by
vigorously using public outreach and
involvement.
  The basic legal requirements we must
follow when we issue a regulation
generally are contained in the
Administrative Procedure Act, the
Regulatory Flexibility Act as amended
by the Small Business Regulatory
Enforcement Fairness Act, the
Unfunded Mandates Reform Act, the
Paperwork Reduction Act, the National
Technology Transfer and Advancement
Act, and the Congressional Review Act.
You can find information on many of
these  statutes  at
http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/.
  We also must meet a number of
requirements  contained in Executive
orders. Of particular significance for
EPA rulemakings are Executive Orders
12866 (Regulatory Planning and
Review), 13045  (Children's Health
Protection), 13175 (Consultation and
Coordination  with Indian Tribal
Governments), and 13132 (Federalism).
You can find information on these and
other  Executive orders at
http://www.nara.gov/fedreg/eo.html.
C. How Does EPA Develop Rules and
Policies and How Can You Participate?
  You may participate by contacting the
expert responsible for developing a
particular rule. You may also participate
by commenting on proposed rules that
we publish in the Federal Register.
Once  we have proposed a rule, we will
consider your comments and address
them before issuing a final rule. To be
most effective, comments should
contain information and data that
support your position, and you also
should explain why we should

                  Federal  Register/ Vol.  66,  No. 93/Monday, May  14,  2001/Unified Agenda
                                                                     26121
EPA
incorporate your suggestion in the final
rule. You can be particularly helpful
and persuasive if you provide examples
to illustrate your concerns and offer
specific alternatives.

  The agenda also includes some of our
more important guidance documents
which reflect EPA's thinking in major
policy areas. We invite you to take part
in developing these documents.

  For a detailed description of our rule
and policy development process request
a copy of "Initiation of EPA's New
Regulatory and Policy Development
Process" from Janice Ndunguru at 1200
Pennsylvania Avenue  NW., Washington,
DC 20460; e-mail:
ndunguru.janice@epa.gov; phone: (202)
564-6572.

D. What Actions Are Included in the
Agenda?

  EPA includes regulations and certain
major policy documents in the Agenda.
We do not generally include minor
amendments or the following categories
of actions in the Agenda:
• Under the Clean Air Act: Revisions to
  State Implementation Plans;
  Equivalent Methods for Ambient Air
  Quality Monitoring; Deletions from
  the New Source Performance
  Standards source categories list;
  Delegations of Authority to States;
  Area Designations for Air Quality
  Planning Purposes.
• Under the Federal Insecticide,
  Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act:
  Actions regarding pesticide tolerances
  and food additive regulations;
  decision documents defining and
  establishing registration standards;
  decision documents and termination
  decisions for the Special Review
  Registration process; and data call-in
  requests made under section
  3(c)(2)(B).
• Under the Resource Conservation and
  Recovery Act: Authorization of State
  solid waste management plans;
  hazardous waste delisting petitions.
• Under the Clean Water Act: State

  Delegations of NPDES  authority to
  States.
• Under the Safe Drinking Water Act:
  Actions on State underground
  injection control programs.
  There is no legal significance to the
omission of an item from the agenda.
E. How Is the Agenda Organized?
  We have organized the agenda:
• First, by the law that would authorize
  a particular regulation;
• Second, by the current stage of
  development (proposal, final, etc.);
  and
• Third, by the section number of the
  statute which requires or authorizes
  the rule.
  The following 14 sections deal with
13 laws that EPA administers and a
fourteenth broader section called
"General" that includes cross-cutting
actions, such as rules authorized by
multiple statutes and general
acquisition rules:

1. General

2. The Clean Air Act (CAA)

3. The Atomic Energy Act (AEA)

4. The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide,
  and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA)

5. The Federal Food, Drug, and
  Cosmetic Act (FFDCA)

6. The Toxic Substances Control Act
  (TSCA)

7. The Emergency Planning and
  Community Right-to-Know Act
  (EPCRA)

8. Chemical Safety Information, Site
  Security and Fuels Regulatory Relief
  Act

9. The Resource Conservation and
  Recovery Act  (RCRA)

10. The Oil Pollution Act (OPA)

11. The Comprehensive Environmental
  Response, Compensation, and
  Liability Act Superfund (CERCLA)

12. The Clean Water Act (CWA)

13. The Safe Drinking Water Act
  (SDWA)

14. The Shore Protection Act (SPA)
  In each of these  14 sections, there are
up to 5 headings covering the following
stages of rulemaking:

1. Prerulemakings - Prerulemaking
  actions are intended to determine
  whether EPA should initiate
  rulemaking. Prerulemakings may
   include anything that influences or
   leads to rulemaking, such as advance
   notices of proposed rulemaking
   (ANPRMs), significant studies or
   analyses of the possible need for
   regulatory action, announcement of
   reviews of existing regulations
   required under section 610 of the
   Regulatory Flexibility Act, requests
   for public comment on the need for
   regulatory action, or important
   preregulatory policy proposals.

 2. Proposed Rules - This section
   includes EPA rulemaking actions that
   are within a year of proposal
   (publication of Notices of Proposed
   Rulemakings (NPRMs)).

 3. Final Rules - This section includes
   rules that are within a year of final
   promulgation.

 4. Long-Term Actions - This section
   includes rulemakings for which the
   next scheduled regulatory action is
   after March 2002.

 5. Completed Actions - This section
   contains actions  that have been
   promulgated and published in the
   Federal Register since publication of
   the October 2000 Agenda. It also
   includes actions  that we are no longer
   considering. If an action  appears in
   the completed section, it will not
   appear in future Agendas unless we
   decide to initiate action again, in
   which case it will appear as a new
   entry. EPA also announces the results
   of our Regulatory Flexibility Act
   section 610 reviews in this section of
   the Agenda.
F. What Information Is in Agenda
Entries?
   Agenda entries include the following
information, where applicable:
   Sequence Number: This indicates
where the entry appears in the Agenda.
   Title: Titles for new entries (those that
haven't appeared in previous Agendas)
are preceded by a bullet (•). The
notation "Section 610 Review" follows
the title if we are reviewing the rule as
part  of our periodic review of existing
rules under section 610 of the
Regulatory  Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C.
610).
  Priority: Entries are placed into one of
five categories described below.
  Economically Significant: As defined
in Executive Order  12866, a rulemaking
action that will have an annual effect on

-------
26122
Federal Register/Vol. 66, No.  93/Monday,  May 14, 2001/Unified  Agenda
EPA
the economy of $100 million or more or
will adversely affect in a material way
the economy, a sector of the economy,
productivity, competition, jobs, the
environment, public health or safety, or
State, local, or tribal governments or
communities. OMB reviews all
economically significant rules under
Executive Order 12866.
  Other Significant: A rulemaking that
is not economically significant but is
considered significant by the agency.
This category includes rules that are an
EPA priority and rules that EPA
anticipates will be reviewed by the
Office of Management and Budget under
Executive Order 12866 because they are
likely to:
• Create a serious inconsistency or
  otherwise interfere with an action
  taken or planned by another agency;
• Materially alter the budgetary impact
  of entitlements, grants, user fees, or
  loan programs or the rights or
  obligations of recipients; or
• Raise novel legal or policy issues.
  Substantive, Nonsignificant: A
rulemaking that has substantive impacts
but is neither Significant, nor Routine
and Frequent, nor
Informational/Administrative/Other.
  Routine and Frequent: A rulemaking
that is a specific case of a multiple
recurring application of a regulatory
program in the Code of Federal
Regulations and that does not alter the
body of the regulation.
  Informational/Administrative/Other:
A rulemaking that is primarily
informational or pertains to agency
matters not central to accomplishing the
agency's regulatory mandate but that the
agency places in the Agenda to inform
the public of the activity.
  Also, if we believe that a rule may be
"major" as defined in the congressional
review provisions  of the Small Business
Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act
(SBREFA) (5 U.S.C. 801; Public Law
104-121) because it is likely to result in
an annual effect on the economy of $100
million or more or meets other criteria
specified in this law, we indicate this
under the "Priority" heading with the
statement "Major under 5 U.S.C. 801."
  Legal Authority: The sections of the
United States Code (U.S.C.),  Public Law
                     (P.L.), Executive Order (E.O.), or
                     common name of the law that
                     authorizes the regulatory action.
                       CFR Citation: The sections of the
                     Code of Federal Regulations that will be
                     affected by the action.
                       Legal Deadline: An indication of
                     whether the rule is subject to a statutory
                     or judicial deadline, the date of that
                     deadline, and whether the deadline
                     pertains to a Notice of Proposed
                     Rulemaking, a Final Action, or some
                     other action.
                       Abstract: A brief description of the
                     problem the regulation will address; the
                     need for a Federal solution; to the  extent
                     available, the alternatives that the
                     agency is considering to address the
                     problem; and the potential advantages
                     and disadvantages of the action.
                       Timetable: The dates (and citations)
                     that documents for this action were
                     published in the Federal Register  and,
                     where possible, a projected date for the
                     next step. Projected publication dates
                     frequently change during the course of
                     a rule development. The projections in
                     the agenda are our best estimates as of
                     the date we submit the agenda for
                     publication. For some entries, the
                     timetable indicates that  the date of the
                     next action is  "to be determined."
                       Regulatory Flexibility Analysis
                     Required: Indicates whether EPA has
                     prepared  or anticipates that it will be
                     preparing a regulatory flexibility
                     analysis under section 603 or 604  of the
                     Regulatory Flexibility Act. Generally,
                     such an analysis is required for
                     proposed or final rules that EPA
                     believes may have a significant
                     economic impact on a substantial
                     number of small entities.
                       Small Entities Affected: Indicates
                     whether we expect the rule to have any
                     effect on small entities.
                       Government Levels Affected: Indicates
                     whether we expect the rule to have any
                     effect on levels of government and, if so,
                     whether the governments are State,
                     local, tribal, or Federal.
                       Federalism Implications: Indicates
                     whether the action is expected to have
                     substantial direct effects on the States,
                     on the relationship between the national
                     government and the States, or on the
distribution of power and
responsibilities among the various
levels of government.

  Unfunded Mandates: Section 202 of
the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act
requires an assessment of anticipated
costs and benefits if a rule includes a
mandate that may result in expenditures
of more than $100 million in any one
year by State, local, and tribal
governments, in the aggregate, or by the
private sector. If we expect to exceed
this $100 million threshold, we note it
in this section.

  Agency Contact: The name, address,
phone number, and e-mail address, if
available, of a person who is
knowledgeable about the regulation.

  SAN Number: A code number that
EPA uses to identify and track
rulemakings.

  RIN: The Regulation Identifier
Number is used by OMB to identify and
track rulemakings. The first four digits
of the RIN stand for the EPA office with
lead responsibility for developing the
action.

G. What Tools Are Available To Help
Quickly Identify Rules That Are  of
Interest to You?

  The Regulatory Information Service
Center (RISC), the Government Printing
Office (GPO), and the EPA have created
a number of aids to help you find
actions that are of interest to you.
  For Rules That Directly Affect a
Particular Industry: See Appendix F
"Subject Index to the Unified Agenda."
If you have access to the Internet, you
can use the EPA Regulatory Agenda
search engine which is located in the
Small Business Regulatory Library
section of the EPA Web site at
www.epa.gov/regagenda. Click on
"Search Regulatory Action Database"
and then "Access the Database". This
tool can be used to search all Agenda
entries by keyword and we invite
everyone to use it. The GPO also  has a
search engine which is located at.
  For Rules With Economic Impacts

Federal Register/Vol.  66,  No. 93/Monday, May  14,  2001/Unified  Agenda
EPA
  regulatory agendas and regulatory
  plans going back to October 1995.

  In the "Additional Information"
section of many of the entries in this
Agenda we include the Internet address
for documents that we have already
published as part of the mlemaking.

I. What Special Attention Do We Give
to the Impacts of Rules on Small
Entities?

  For each of our rulemakings we
consider whether there will be any
adverse impact on any small entity. We
attempt to fit the regulatory
requirements, to the extent feasible, to
the  scale of the businesses,
organizations, and governmental
jurisdictions subject to the regulation.

For Rules Under Development Expected
To Have Some Impact on Small
Entities, but Not a Significant Impact on
a Substantial Number

  In the "Small Entities Affected"
section, we indicate whether we expect
an action will have an impact on small
businesses, governments, or nonprofit
organizations, but one which is less
than a significant impact on a
substantial number.  In Appendix C at
the  end of the Agenda, we list all
actions that we believe will not have  a
significant impact on a substantial
number of small entities but which will
have some impact on small entities.

Regulatory Flexibility Act
Considerations: For Rules That May
Have  a Significant Impact on a
Substantial Number of Small Entities

  The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA)
as amended by the Small Business
Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act
(SBREFA) requires that we pay
particular attention to the impact of
regulations on small entities (i.e., small
businesses, small governmental
jurisdictions, and small nonprofit
organizations). The RFA/SBREFA
applies to rules we are now developing
and requires us to carry out particular
procedures under certain circumstances.
We have developed  a Web  site to
provide detailed information on EPA's
activities related to RFA/SBREFA
                     (www.epa.gov/sbrefa) and some of that
                     information is summarized below:

                     1.  Convene a Small Business Advocacy
                       Review (SBAR) Panel prior to
                       proposing any rule subject to notice-
                       and-comment requirements unless the
                       Agency certifies the rule will not have
                       a significant economic impact on a
                       substantial number of small entities
                       (RFA section 609). SBREFA also
                       established the EPA's Small Business
                       Advocacy Chair who chairs each
                       SBAR Panel. A SBAR Panel has four
                       members: The Chair, the Chief
                       Counsel for Advocacy of the Small
                       Business Administration, the
                       Administrator of the Office of
                       Information and Regulatory Affairs
                       within the Office of Management and
                       Budget, and a senior manager from
                       the EPA program office responsible
                       for the subject rule. In the case of
                       rules requiring a SBAR Panel, the
                       Agency's small entity outreach prior
                       to the convening of a Panel
                       culminates in the development of a
                       summary document that contains
                       information on the potential impact of
                       a proposed rule on small entities, and
                       particularly on the issues referenced
                       in RFA section 609. This summary
                       serves as the basis for convening the
                       Panel. The Panel then conducts its
                       review, carries out its own small
                       entity outreach, and prepares a report
                       based on the comments from the
                       small entity representatives and the
                       Panel's deliberations. The Panel's
                       final report is provided to the EPA
                       Administrator and is made a part of
                       the rulemaking record. Rules listed in
                       the second appendix at the end of the
                       Agenda may require Small Business
                       Advocacy Review Panels.

                     2.  At the proposed and final rule stages
                       of rule development, the Agency must
                       prepare a regulatory flexibility
                       analysis for any rule subject to notice
                       and comment rulemaking
                       requirements (RFA sections 603 and
                       604), unless the Administrator
                       certifies that the rule will not have a
                       "significant economic impact on a
                       substantial number of small entities"
                       (RFA section 605). A regulatory
  flexibility analysis must, among other
  items specified in the RFA, identify
  the extent to which small entities will
  be subject to the rule's requirements
  and describe any significant
  alternatives to the rule that
  accomplish the objectives of
  applicable statutes and which
  minimize any significant economic
  impacts on small entities. We have
  listed in the second index at the end
  of the Agenda all rules under
  development that may require a
  regulatory flexibility analysis.

3.  RFA section 610 requires that an
  agency review within 10 years of
  promulgation those regulations that
  have or will have a significant
  economic impact on a substantial
  number of small entities. We
  undertake these reviews to decide
  whether we should continue the rule
  unchanged, amend it, or withdraw it.
  We announce our forthcoming 610
  reviews in the "Prerule" section  of the
  Agenda. We encourage small entities
  to provide comments on the need to
  change these rules. We will consider
  all of your comments as we decide
  whether to continue, amend, or
  withdraw these rules. We particularly
  encourage comments by small entities
  about how rules could be made
  clearer, more effective, or remove
  conflicting or overlapping
  requirements with other Federal or
  State regulations. In this Agenda we
  report on the results of the review of
  the Effluent Guideline for Organic
  Chemicals, Plastics,  and Synthetic
  Fibers. If  you have general questions
  about our 610 review program or
  suggestions for other rules we should
  review under section 610, please
  contact Phil Schwartz (1806A),
  Environmental Protection Agency,
  1200 Pennsylvania Ave. NW.,
  Washington, DC 20460; fax:  (202) 564-
  6564, e-mail:

                   Abstract: The Gold Track Program is
                   a crucial part of NJDEP's efforts to
                   create a State-run tiered performance-
                   based program. Currently, facilities may
                   join NJDEP's Silver Track Program,
                   which is a lower-level tier that provides
                   recognition for commitments to a
                   certain level of environmental
enhancement. Gold Track expands
upon these environmental
commitments, and offers proportionally
greater recognition, as well as actual
federal regulatory flexibility to
participating facilities. NJDEP is
partnering with EPA in the Gold Track
effort under the XL program, so as to

Abstract: The regulation will codify
revisions to the Agency's program for
the utilization of Small, Minority and
Women's Business Enterprises in
procurements under assistance
agreements (i.e., grants and cooperative
agreements awarded by EPA as well as
grants and cooperative agreements
awarded by other agencies under
interagency agreements with EPA). The
revisions are necessary to ensure
consistency with the Supreme Court's
decision in Adarand Constructors, Inc.
v. Pena, 115 S.Ct. 2097 (1995), and
were identified as part of the Clinton
Administration's review of affirmative
action programs. They include: (1)
placing greater emphasis on requiring
assistance agreement recipients to
submit documentation supporting
proposed fair share procurement
objectives for Minority Business
Enterprises (MBEs) and Women's
Business Enterprises (WBEs) based on
the availability of qualified MBEs and
WBEs in the relevant  geographic
market; (2) authorizing or requiring
recipients and their prime contractors
to take reasonable race/gender-
conscious measures (e.g., bidding
credits) in the event that race/gender-
neutral efforts prove inadequate to meet
fair share objectives; and (3)
administering statutory MBE/WBE
objectives as a national goal, allowing
smaller or larger fair share objectives
for particular grants or cooperative
                    agreements based on the availability

3210. IMPLEMENTATION OF
CHANGES TO GOVERNMENTWIDE
DEBARMENT AND SUSPENSION
COMMON  RULE
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: EO 12549; EO 12689
and FASA
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 32
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: Periodically OMB  amends  the
Government-wide  Common Rule for
suspension and  debarment of
contractors and  assistance participants
who  threaten the integrity of Federal
programs because  of criminal
misconduct or poor performance. All
agencies must issue changes to their
individual codified versions to conform
to the Common  Rule. Recently, the
Interagency Suspension and Debarment
Coordinating Committee prepared
recommendations  for comprehensive
changes to the Common Rule to
conform to changes made in the
Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR)
as a result of the Federal Acquisition
Streamlining Act (FASA). In addition,
several other proposals to improve or
change the rule were recommended by
various agencies. In December 1996,
OMB declined to implement the
changes at that time due to differences
with some agencies about some changes
unrelated to those occasioned by FASA.
Among other things, FASA replaced the
small purchase threshold ($25,000)
with the simplified acquisition amount
($100,000). That change unintentionally
exposed certain EPA programs to
participation by contractors who may
have been debarred for serious
misconduct already. OMB has agreed to
permit agencies to amend the coverage
section of their individual agency rules
to reduce or eliminate exposure to
suspended or debarred persons.
EPA intends to issue a notice of
proposed rulemaking to amend 40 CFR
32.110 to reduce EPA exposure to such
consequences.

Abstract: The purpose of this action is
to develop regulations for: (1) the
environmental impact assessment of
nongovernmental activities,  including
tourism, for which the United States is
required to give advance notice under
paragraph 5 of Article VII of the
Antarctic Treaty and (2) coordination
of the review of information regarding
environmental impact assessment
received by the United States from
other parties under the Protocol on
Environmental Protection. The Office of
Federal Activities (OECA/OFA) will use
the decisionmaking process  of the
National Environmental Policy Act
(NEPA) to analyze the environmental
setting; the types of nongovernmental
activities, including  tourism, to be
addressed by the regulations; their
potential for impact; and the
alternatives available under  rulemaking
for environmental impact assessments
for nongovernmental activities.  An
interim final rule, 40 CFR part 8,
promulgated April 30, 1997, and on
July 15, 1998 extended through the
2000-2001 austral summer, will be
replaced by a final rule. The interim
final rule was effective immediately so
that the U.S. could ratify the Protocol
and implement its obligations under
the Protocol as soon as it entered into
force. These rules are being developed
in coordination with other Federal
agencies with specific interests  in and
expertise with Antarctica including the
Department of State, National Science
Foundation, National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration, U.S.
Coast Guard, Marine Mammal
Commission, Department of Justice,  and
the Council on Environmental Quality.

Abstract: EPA regulations at 40 CFR
part 2, subpart B, provide procedures
for handling and disclosing information
claimed as  confidential business
information (CBI). Although the current
regulations  have  succeeded in
protecting CBI, changes in Agency
workload, practice, and statutory
authority have made it difficult to
handle CBI activities as expeditiously
as desired.  EPA is examining its CBI
regulations  to determine what changes
are needed  to make the regulations as
efficient and effective as possible.
Provision 40 CFR 2.205(c), which
automatically protects CBI
substantiations claimed as confidential,
is being examined individually and as
part of the CBI regulations as a whole.

3214. CROSS-MEDIA ELECTRONIC
REPORTING (ER) AND
RECORDKEEPING RULE
Priority:  Other Significant
Legal Authority: PL 104-13; PL 105-277
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 3 (New); 40 CFR
9 (Revision)
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The Cross-Media Electronic
Reporting (ER) and Recordkeeping Rule
will provide a uniform legal  framework
for paperless electronic reporting and
recordkeeping, including electronic
signature/ certification, across EPA's
environmental compliance programs.
The rule will both remove current legal
requirements for paper that create
obstacles to electronic reporting and
recordkeeping and provide for
mechanisms to  assure the legal validity
and authenticity of electronic
documents and associated electronic
signatures, whether transmitted as
reports or maintained as records. This
rule is important because the legal and
electronic signature issues remain the
chief obstacle to implementation of
paperless electronic reporting, and
affect the overall enforceability of
environmental programs both federally
and under state
delegation/authorization. Also, the
Government Paperwork Elimination Act
of 1998 requirements and the
Administrator's Reinventing
Environmental Information (REI) Action
Plan goal of universal ER availability
by 2003 can only be met if this
rulemaking has active participation by
the AA-ships and moves on a fast track.

                                       Abstract: The U.S. Environmental
                                       Protection  Agency (EPA) has  developed
National Action Plans under a national
strategy to overcome the remaining
challenges in addressing priority PBT
pollutants. These pollutants pose risks
because they are toxic, persist in
ecosystems,  and  accumulate in fish and
up the food  chain. The PBT challenges
remaining stem from the pollutants'
ability to travel long distances, to
transfer rather easily among air, water,
and land, and to  linger for generations.
EPA is committing,  through this
strategy, to create an enduring cross-
office system that will address the
cross-media  issues associated with
priority PBT pollutants. This strategy
fortifies existing  EPA commitments
related to priority PBTs, such as the
1997 Canada / U.S.  Binational Toxics
Strategy (BNS), the North American
Agreement on Environmental
Cooperation, and the recently released
Clean Water Action Plan. EPA is
forging a new approach to reduce risks
from and exposures to priority PBT
pollutants through increased
coordination among EPA national and
regional programs. This approach also
requires the  significant involvement of
stakeholders, including international,
state, local, and tribal  organizations, the
regulated community, environmental
groups, and  private  citizens. EPA is
carrying out this  strategy through the
implementation of National Action
Plans for Priority PBT Pollutants. EPA
is initially focusing  action on 12 BNS
Level 1 substances  either individually
or as categories and two major cross-
cutting issues (monitoring and
outreach/risk communication). The
action plans will use the full range of
its tools to prevent and reduce releases
of these substances. These tools include
international, voluntary, regulatory,
programmatic, remedial, compliance
monitoring and assistance,
enforcement, research, and outreach
tools. EPA will integrate and sequence
actions within and across action plans,
and will seek to leverage these actions
on international and industry-sector
bases. Beyond these first 12 substances
EPA will identify additional PBTs for
development of National Action Plans.

Abstract: The National Environmental
Achievement Track is designed to
recognize facilities that consistently
meet their legal requirements and have
implemented high-quality
environmental management systems,
and to encourage them to achieve more
by continuously improving their
environmental performance and
informing and involving the public.
Facilities gain entrance to Achievement
Track by submitting an application that
documents  that four specific criteria are
met. To promote participation in the
program and the environmental and
other benefits that will come with it,
EPA intends to offer several incentives.
Among those incentives are the
adjustments in current regulatory
requirements that are the subjects of
this rulemaking. These include
reducing the frequency of reports
required under the Maximum
Achievable Control Technology
(MACT) provisions of the Clean Air
Act;  streamlined by publically owned
treatment works (POTWs) under the
Clean Water Act; and opportunity for
Achievement Track facilities to
consolidate reporting under various
environmental statutes into a single
report.

Abstract: This document proposes
revisions to EPA's regulations under
the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
The FOIA regulations have been
streamlined and written in plain
English wherever possible. These
revisions reflect the principles
established by President Clinton and
Attorney General Reno in  their FOIA
Policy Memoranda of October 4, 1993.
They also reflect developments in the
case law and include updated cost
figures for calculating and charging
fees. In addition, the proposed
revisions include provisions
implementing the Electronic Freedom
of Information Act Amendments of
1996. These revisions will simplify and
expedite responses to FOIA requests.

                                                                         Long-Term Actions
3225. CONSOLIDATION OF GOOD
LABORATORY PRACTICE
STANDARDS (GLPS) REGULATIONS
CURRENTLY UNDER TSCA AND
FIFRA INTO ONE RULE
Priority: Info./Admin./Other
Legal Authority:  15 USC 2601 et seq;
7 USC 136 et seq
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 160; 40 CFR 792
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: On November 29, 1983, EPA
published Good Laboratory Practice
Standards (GLPS) regulations  intended
to help ensure data integrity for studies
required to support marketing and
research permits under the Federal
Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide
Act (FIFRA)  and the Toxic Substances
Control Act (TSCA). These rules were
last amended on August 17, 1989.
GLPS data integrity measures can be
applied to a  wide variety of scientific
studies. Although the TSCA and FIFRA
GLPS contain identical provisions, they
were published as separate rules to
account for statutory and program
differences between TSCA and FIFRA,
such as differences in records retention
requirements. EPA believes it will be
able to address the differences between
TSCA and FIFRA, such as differences
in records retention requirements. EPA
believes it will be able to address the
differences of those programs without
duplicating the entire GLP standard in
two places.
This action is intended to consolidate
EPA's GLPS into one rule. Program-
specific requirements will be addressed
in either separate sections of the
consolidated rule, or in separate rules
as is determined appropriate.  This
action is not intended to change the
requirements, applicability, or
enforceability of GLPS with respect to
any statute.
EPA has received comments from
stakeholders regarding the
understandability of many aspects of
the  GLPS, and over the years has issued
numerous clarifications. EPA believes
that some clarifications, if included
directly in the rule, would make the
rule easier to understand and enhance
compliance. Therefore, EPA intends  to
include such clarifications where
appropriate in this rulemaking. Finally,
in the interest of maintaining
consistency between EPA's and Food
and Drug Administration's regulations,
EPA will determine any modifications
that have occurred to the FDA GLP rule
                    and consider incorporation of such
                    changes into the EPA rule. This action
                    will serve to reduce the total regulatory
                    text in the Code of Federal Regulations
                    by an estimated 10 pages, by
                    consolidating 23 pages of text to
                    approximately 13. In the process it will
                    provide a generic GLP rule that may
                    be used by other programs in the
                    Agency.

                     Abstract: The Department of Justice
                     proposes to make amendments to its
                     regulations implementing Title VI of
                     the Civil Rights Act  of 1964 (Title VI),
                     Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act
                     of 1972 (Section 504), and the Age
                     Discrimination Act of 1975 (Age
                     Discrimination Act). Together, these
                     statutes prohibit discrimination on the
                     basis of race,  color, national origin,
                     disability, and age in programs or
                     activities that receive Federal financial
                     assistance. In 1988, the Civil Rights
                     Restoration Act (CRRA) added
definitions of program or activity and
program to Title VI and added a
definition of program or activity to
Section 504 and the Age Discrimination
Act. The added definitions were
designed  to clarify the broad scope of
coverage of recipients' programs or
activities  under these statutes. The
promulgation of this proposed
regulation explicitly incorporates the
CRRA's definition of program or
activity and program into the
Department's Title VI, Section 504, and
Age Discrimination Act regulations.
The Department's proposed regulation
will be published as part of a joint
Notice of Proposed  Rulemaking
involving up to 24 Federal agencies.

3227. GUIDELINES FOR CARCINOGEN
RISK ASSESSMENT
Priority: Info./Admin./Other
Legal Authority: Not applicable
CFR Citation: Not Yet Determined
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The Agency will use these
guidelines to evaluate suspect
carcinogens in line with the policies
and procedures established in the
statutes administered by the EPA.
These guidelines revise and replace
EPA Guidelines for Carcinogen Risk
Assessment published at 51 FR 33992,
September 24, 1986. These guidelines
provide EPA staff and decision-makers
with the directions and perspectives
necessary to develop and use risk
assessments. The guidelines also
provide the general public with basic
information about the Agency's
approaches to risk assessment.

To develop guidelines the Agency must
find a balance between consistency and
innovation. Consistent risk assessments
provide consistent bases to support
regulatory decision-making. On the
other hand, innovation is necessary so
the Agency will base its decisions on
current scientific thinking.  In balancing
these and other science policies, the
Agency relies on input from the general
scientific community through
established scientific peer review
processes. The guidelines incorporate
basic principles and science policies
based on evaluation of the currently
available information.  The revisions
place increased emphasis on the role
of carcinogenic mechanisms in risk
assessment and clearer explication of
underlying assumptions in  risk
assessment.

These guidelines will have  minimal to
no impact on small businesses or State,
local, and tribal governments.

Abstract: The Environmental
Protection Agency is revising its 1981
Public Participation Policy. The revised
policy is being issued as the Draft 2000
Public Involvement Policy for 120-day
public comment. The Draft Policy was
updated to reflect changes over the  past
nineteen years such as additional
Agency responsibilities, new
regulations, expanded public
involvement techniques, and the
changed nature of public access due to
the Internet. The Policy will provide
guidance and direction to EPA officials
on reasonable and effective means to
                                                        involve the public in its regulatory and

Legal  Deadline: None
Abstract: On June  17, 1980, the
Department of Justice published  a
proposed regulation to implement the
requirements of title IX of the
Education Amendments of 1972, as
amended, which prohibits
discrimination on the basis of an
individual's sex in federally assisted
educational programs. That regulation
was never issued in final form. As a
result of subsequent statutory
amendments, it was necessary to revise
the prior proposed title IX regulation
and begin a new rulemaking process.
                    The Department's regulation was
                    published as a common rule with other
                    agencies that need title IX
                    regulations.

3240. AMENDMENTS TO METHOD 24
(WATER-BASED COATINGS)
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7410
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 60
Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory, June
15, 2001.
Abstract: The determination of volatile
organic  compounds (VOCs) content of
a surface coating by reference Method
24 involves determination of its water
content  and calculation of its VOC
content  as the difference of the two
measurements (volatile content minus
water content). Method 24 is inherently
less precise for water-based coatings
than it is for solvent-based coatings and
the imprecision increases as water
content  increases. This action will
amend Method 24 by adding a direct
measurement procedure for measuring
VOC content of water-based coatings.
This amendment will improve the
precision of Method 24 for water-based
coatings.

Abstract: This project is to develop
national emission standards for
hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) by
establishing maximum achievable
control technology (MACT) for facilities
manufacturing wood panels and
engineered wood products. MACT
standards are under development to
reduce the release of hazardous air
pollutants (HAP) from all  industries to
protect the public health and
environment. Emissions of HAP from
this industry have been associated
with, but are not limited to, the drying
of wood and binders.  This rule  is
anticipated to apply to the manufacture
of products involving wood and some
kind of binder or bonding agent. This
project may include, but is not limited
to, facilities that manufacture
waferboard, hardboard fiber board
(MDF), oriented strandboard (OSB),
medium density fiberboard,
particleboard, strawboard, hardwood
and softwood plywood, glue-laminated
lumber, laminated veneer lumber, and
engineered wood products. The source
category may also include lumber
drying kilns at sawmills which  are
located on the same site as a facility
that manufactures any of the wood
products mentioned above. The project
may also include some coatings
operations. The  name of the source
category was formerly Plywood and
Particleboard MACT.

                     are consistent with Clean Air Act air
                     quality  standards. The Open Market
                     Trading Guidance provides guidance to
                     states for establishing a method to
                     quantify emissions reductions (called

                     conformity rule to clarify how
                     emissions trading could be reconciled

                                     and trucks. The current test procedure
                                     requires both two and three day diurnal
                                     emission tests, as well as running-loss

Abstract: This rulemaking will modify
the list of source categories for which
fugitive emissions  are to be considered
in major source determinations under
the New Source Review (Prevention of
Significant Deterioration and
Nonattainment New Source Review)
and title V programs. As provided by
section 302 (j) of the Act, EPA adopted
rules on August 7, 1980 that require,
for specific source categories, the
inclusion of fugitive emissions when
determining if a stationary source is a
major source. In its 1980 rulemaking,
EPA identified one such specific source
category as those stationary source
categories being regulated, as of August
7, 1980, under section 111 or 112 of
the Clean Air Act. Moreover, EPA
indicated that at the time of any future
rulemaking proposing to regulate
additional categories of sources under
section 111 or 112, the EPA would
conduct a parallel rulemaking under
section 302(j) to determine whether
fugitive emissions from sources within
these source  categories needed to be
considered in determining whether the
sources were major stationary sources.
EPA did not  conduct these parallel
rulemakings  as intended and is now
conducting a rulemaking pursuant to
section 302(j) to address the source
categories  which became subject to
section 111 and 112 standards after
August 7,  1980.

                    ozone-depleting substances or
hydrochloroflurocarbons (HCFCs) had
not been established prior to 1998
because consumption figures had
hovered around 80% of the cap
imposed by the Montreal Protocol in
1992. The HCFC consumption figures
for 1999  indicate that the US is within
95% of the cap; the figures for 2000
were in the low 90s. Since the US is
in danger of violating this cap  if high
HCFC consumption rates continue into
2001, the system for allocating
allowances must be in place as soon
as possible in order to control HCFC
consumption for all four quarters of
2002.

Abstract: Title III of the Clean Air Act
Amendments of 1990 requires the EPA
to develop emission standards for each
major source category of hazardous air
pollutants (HAPs). The standards are to
be technology-based and are to require
the maximum degree of emission
reduction determined to be achievable
by the Administrator of the EPA. The
EPA has determined that some
hydrochloric acid plants may be major
sources for one or more HAPs. As a
consequence, a regulation (emission
standards) will be developed for the
hydrochloric acid production industry.

3250. NESHAP: ASPHALT/COAL TAR
APPLICATION ON METAL PIPES
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7401 et seq
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 63
Legal Deadline: NPRM, Statutory, May
1, 2001.
Abstract: The Clean Air Act (CAA), as
amended in 1990, requires the EPA to
(1) publish an initial list of all
categories of major and area sources of
the hazardous air pollutants (HAPs)
listed in section 112(b) of the CAA, (2)
promulgate a schedule establishing a
date for the promulgation of emission
standards for each of the listed
categories of HAPs emission sources,
and (3) develop emission standards for
each source of HAPs. These standards
are to be technology-based and are to
require the maximum degree of
emission reduction determined to be
achievable by the Administrator. The
Agency has determined that the
application of asphalt or coal tar to
metal pipes may reasonably be
anticipated to emit several of the 189
HAPs listed in section 112(b) of the
CAA. As a consequence, a regulatory
development program is being pursued
for the asphalt/coal tar application on
metal pipes industry to promulgate
emission standards.

Abstract: This project will develop
national emissions standards for
hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) by
establishing emissions limitations for
hazardous air pollutants (HAP) which
can be emitted by the two known
sources in this category. The emissions
limitations are to be based upon the
application of the maximum achievable
control technology (MACT). The
purpose of the NESHAP is to reduce
emissions  of HAP to protect public
health and the environment. The
project will begin in 2000. Initially,
information on the industry processes
and emissions of HAP will be analyzed
to identify available emissions control
technologies. That work will be
followed by the development, proposal
and promulgation of NESHAP.

Abstract: Performance Specification 16
is being proposed to provide
performance criteria for predictive
emission monitoring systems.
Predictive systems represent a new
technology that uses process
information or parameters to predict
pollutant emissions instead of directly
measuring them. The Agency is
allowing their use in recently-
promulgated rules and they are being
considered by a number of regulated
facilities. The specification lists the
requirements for acceptable systems
that are met by passing tests that
compare the monitoring system with
standardized methods and audit gases
to  determine system accuracy and
stability. Performance Specification 16
will primarily apply to facilities whose
emissions can be predicted from
process parameters such as combustion
processes (including gas turbines and
internal combustion engines).

3254. TECHNICAL CHANGE TO DOSE
METHODOLOGY FOR 40 CFR 191,
SUBPART A
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 2021 Atomic
Energy Act of 1954; Reorganization
Plan No. 3 of 1970; Nuclear Waste
Policy Act of 1982
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 190(B); 40 CFR
191 (A)
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The purpose of this action is
to make a technical change to the dose
methodology used in subpart A of 40
CFR 191, entitled "Environmental
Radiation Protection Standards for the
Management and Disposal of Spent
Nuclear Fuel, High-Level Waste and
Transuranic Waste The current
methodology is outdated. The dose
methodology used in the rule published
on September 19, 1985, was  based on
the target organ approach
recommended by the International
Commission on Radiological Protection
(ICRP) in Report i2. Since that time
science has progressed and a new
methodology based on an effective dose
equivalent approach is currently being
recommended by the ICRP in Report
x26. This action would update the 40
CFR 191, subpart A dose limits
published  in 1985 from the target organ
to the state-of-the-art effective dose
equivalent system. There would be no
change in the level of protection, just
the scientific methodology for
determining compliance with the levels
of protection established in 1985.

3255. RULEMAKING ON SECTION 126
PETITIONS FROM NEW YORK AND
CONNECTICUT REGARDING
SOURCES IN MICHIGAN
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7426
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 52; 40 CFR 75;
40 CFR 97
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The EPA is proposing to
revise the section 126 rule in light of
the March 3, 2000 Court decision
(Michigan v. EPA, No. 98-1497) on the
NOx SIP Call. The court vacated, and
remanded to EPA for further
consideration, the  inclusion of Georgia
and Missouri in the NOx SIP Call in
light of the Ozone Transport
Assessment Group conclusions that
emissions from coarse grid portions of
States did not merit controls. The
reasoning of the Court regarding the
significance of NOx emissions from
sources in Georgia and Missouri calls
into question the inclusion of the
coarse grid portion of Michigan in the
NOx SIP Call. In a separate proposal
on the NOx SIP Call, EPA is proposing
to withdraw the NOx SIP Call
requirements for the Michigan coarse
grid area. The section 126 rule is based
on many of the same analyses and
information used for the NOx SIP call
and covers part of Michigan. Thus, in
light of the court ruling, EPA is
proposing to withdraw its section 126
findings and control requirements
under the 1-hour ozone standard with
respect to sources  located in the small
part of the coarse grid portion of
Michigan that is currently covered by
the section 126 rule. The EPA has not
identified any existing section 126
sources that would be affected by the
proposal, however this proposal would
eliminate findings and control
requirements for new sources locating
in the coarse grid. This proposal does
not create any new requirements, thus
there are no associated costs. The
proposal does not  raise any novel legal
or policy issues. It is consistent with
the Court ruling on the NOx SIP Call
and EPA's new proposed action on the
NOx SIP Call.

          Abstract: The stationary reciprocating
          internal combustion engine source
          category is listed as a major source of
          hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) under
          section 112 of the Clean Air Act (CAA).
          A major source is one which emits
          more than 10 tons/yr of one HAP or
          more than 25 tons/yr of a combination
          of 189 HAPs. The EPA will gather
          information on HAP emissions from
          internal combustion engines and
          determine the appropriate maximum
          achievable control technology (MACT)
          to reduce HAP emissions. The EPA will
          use information that has already been
          developed, if possible, by gathering
          information by working with State/local
          agencies, vendors, manufacturers of
          internal combustion engines, owners
          and operators of internal combustion
          engines, and environmentalists.

Combustion turbines also emit NOx,
SO2, CO, and PM. Combustion turbines
are already regulated for NOx and SO2
emissions under section 111 of the
CAA. The EPA will gather information
on HAP emissions from combustion
turbines and determine the appropriate
maximum achievable control
technology (MACT) to reduce HAP
emissions. The EPA information that
has already been developed will be
used if possible and additional
information will be gathered by
working with State/local agencies,
vendors, manufacturers of combustion
turbines, owners  and operators of

November 15, 2000.

Abstract: Project is to develop a
NESHAP for the source category which
involves the manufacture of composite
products involving thermoset resins
and re-enforcements. Some of the
specific products in the source category
are tubs/showers, auto/truck parts,
appliances, furniture, piping,
construction materials, sporting goods
using such materials, and intermediate
compounds such as bulk molding
compound and sheet molding
compounds. The most common HAP in
the resins  used is styrene, which is
present in polyester and vinylester
resins as a monomer. Styrene is listed
as a candidate urban area source HAP.
So is methylene chloride, which is
sometimes used for cleaning, and
xylenes, which may appear in some
mold release formulas. All HAP, except
for methylene chloride, are also VOC's.

3262. NESHAP: CHLORINE
PRODUCTION
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7412 CAAA
sec 112
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 63
Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory,
November 15, 2000.
Abstract: The chlorine production
source category includes facilities
engaged in the production of chlorine
and sodium hydroxide (caustic) by one
of the following electrolytic processes:
diaphragm cell, membrane cell, and
mercury cell. Hazardous air pollutants
emitted include chlorine, hydrogen
chloride, and mercury. None of the
facilities are major sources on their
own. However, several are co-located
with major sources (e.g., pulp and
paper plants, polymer plants,  synthetic
organic chemical plants, etc.).
Emissions of chlorine and hydrogen
chloride are very minor and the Agency
is evaluating whether regulation of
these HAPs is warranted. Relative to
mercury, which is among five
pollutants listed for regulation under
section 112(c)(6) due to their persistent
and bioaccumulative effects, the
Agency intends to subject to regulation
under section 112(d)(2) all mercury cell
facilities regardless of major source
status.

Abstract: The General Provisions
(subpart A) were promulgated on
March 16, 1994 (59 FR 12408). The
General Provisions create the technical
and administrative framework and
establish general procedures and
criteria for implementing MACT
standards. On May 16, 1994,  six
litigants filed petitions for EPA to
review certain provisions of the General
Provisions. Subpart B, the procedures
for implementing section 112(j), was
promulgated on May 26, 1994. In June,
1994 litigants filed petitions for EPA
to review the promulgated procedures.
As a result of the litigation, it is
anticipated that a number of technical
and administrative amendments to
subpart A and B will be proposed.

                    Abstract: The CAA required EPA to
                    publish an initial list of all categories
                    of major and area sources of hazardous
                    air pollutants (HAPs) listed in section
                    112(b) of the CAA  and to establish and
                    meet dates for promulgation of
                    emissions standards for  each of the
                    listed categories of HAP emissions
                    sources. The standards are to be
                    technology-based and are to require the
                    maximum degree of reduction
                    determined to be achievable by the
Administrator. The EPA has
determined that the asphalt roofing and
processing industry may be reasonably
anticipated to emit one or more of the
pollutants listed in section 112(b) of the
CAA. As a consequence, the source
category is included on the initial list
of HAP-emitting categories scheduled
for standards promulgation within ten
years of enactment of the CAA
Amendments of 1990.  The purpose of
this action is to pursue a regulatory
development program  such that
emission standards may be proposed
and promulgated according to the
mandated schedule.

establish and meet dates for
promulgation of emission standards for
each of the listed categories of HAP
emission sources. The standards are to
be technology-based and are to require
the maximum degree of emission
reduction determined to be achievable
by the Administrator. The refractory
products manufacturing source category
is included on the initial list of HAP-
emitting categories under the name
chromium refractories, and the rule is
scheduled for promulgation within ten
years of enactment of the Clean Air Act
Amendments of 1990. Testing
conducted and information obtained to
date indicate 15 major sources exist in
this source category and will be
affected by this rulemaking. The EPA
has determined that the refractory
products manufacturing industry emits
HAPs including chromium compounds,
ethylene glycol, phenol, methanol,
hydrochloric acid, formaldehyde,
polycyclic organic matter (POM) and
hydrogen fluoride; eight of the 189
HAPs listed in section 112  of the Act.
Impacts on small businesses and on

develop emission standards for sources
of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs).
Industrial boilers,
institutional/commercial boilers and
process heaters are among the potential
source categories to be regulated under
section 112 of the CAA.  Emissions of
HAPs will be addressed  by this
rulemaking for both new and existing
sources. EPA promulgated an NSPS for
these source categories in 1987 and
1990. The standards for the NESHAP
are to be technology-based and are to
require the maximum achievable
control technology (MACT) as
described in section 112 of the CAA.

                                                          EPA to develop emission standards for
                                                          each major source category of
                                                          hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). The
                                                          standards are to be technology-based
                                                          and are to require the maximum degree
                                                          of emission reduction determined to be
                                                          achievable by the Administrator of the
                                                          EPA. The EPA has determined that
                                                          some lime manufacturing plants may be
                                                          major sources for one or more HAPs.
                                                          As a consequence, a regulation

Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory,

Abstract: Section 112 of the Clean Air
Act (Act), as amended November 1990,
requires the EPA to regulate categories
of major and area sources of hazardous
air pollutants (HAPs) listed in section
112(b). The EPA has determined that
sources that manufacture primary
magnesium may reasonably be
anticipated to emit several of the 189
HAPs listed (including chlorine and
hydrochloric acid) in quantities
sufficient to designate them as a major
source. As a consequence, primary
magnesium refining is among the HAP
emitting source categories selected for
regulation and is in the group of
categories for which final rules are
scheduled to be promulgated by
November 15, 2000 (58  FR 63941,
December 3, 1993).

                     Legal Deadline: None
                     Abstract: Final standards under section
                     112(d) for chromium emissions from
                     hard and decorative chromium
                     electroplating and chromium anodizing
                     tanks (40 CFR 63,  Subpart N) were
                     promulgated on January 25, 1995. Since
                     promulgation, the  Agency has
                     determined that a  class of chromium
                     electroplating operations were
                     inadvertently excluded from regulation.
                     Specifically, the final standards do not
                     apply to sources engaged in continuous
                     chromium electroplating of steel sheet
                     used to make cans and other
                     containers. It is the Agency's intent to
                     regulate all facilities engaged in
                     chromium electroplating. Therefore, the
                     Agency plans to amend the chromium
                     electroplating rule to extend its
                     applicability to continuous chromium
                     electroplating operations.

Abstract: This project is to develop
national emission standards for
hazardous air pollutants by establishing
maximum achievable control
technology (MACT) for facilities
distributing organic liquids. MACT
standards are under development to
reduce the release of hazardous air
pollutants (HAPs) from all industries to
protect the public health and
environment. This project should
include but is not limited  to those
activities associated with the storage
and distribution of organic liquids
other than gasoline at sites that serve
as distribution points from which
organic liquids may be obtained for
further use and processing.

ENFORCEMENT AUDITS OF FOREIGN
MANUFACTURED VEHICLES AND
ENGINES; AMENDMENT
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7525 CAA sec
206(b)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 86G (Revision);
40 CFR 86K (Revision)
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This action would consider
an amendment to the existing
regulations to include ports of entry as
a location for EPA selection of foreign
produced vehicles and engines for SEA
emissions testing at laboratories in the
U.S. While the regulations do not
specify EPA authority to conduct such
port selections, the increased flexibility
provided by port selections warrants
amending the regulations. Presently,
EPA must travel overseas to conduct
SEA audits of foreign manufactured
vehicles and engines, even though most
manufacturers now have access to
laboratory facilities in the U.S. The
benefits include a reduction in Agency
cost since fewer overseas trips would
be necessary. Also, EPA would be able
to conduct more audits of foreign
manufactured vehicles and engines.
Separate from the provisions proposed
in this NPRM for amendments to allow
port selection for SEAs, EPA is also
proposing to make two other
amendments to 40 CFR part 86. The
first would amend current Selective
Enforcement Auditing regulations to
change the minimum annual limit of
Selective Enforcement Audits per
manufacturer to two (2) per year.
Currently, the minimum annual limit
is one audit per manufacturer. Under
the proposed amendments EPA would
be able to perform a second audit on
those manufacturers that might
otherwise be limited to one audit.
The second additional proposed
amendment to part 86 would delete
from subparts A and E references to
the Agency representation in certain
types of administrative hearings. The
two provisions state that the Office of
General Counsel will represent the
Agency in administrative procedures
governing hearings on certification for
light-duty vehicles, light-duty trucks,
heavy-duty engines and motorcycles.
The Agency is proposing to delete these
two provisions in order to be consistent
with other hearing procedures in part
86.

3283. PROTECTION OF
STRATOSPHERIC OZONE:
RECONSIDERATION OF SECTION 608
SALES RESTRICTION

Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

Legal Authority: 42 USC 767l(g) CAA
sec 608

CFR Citation: 40 CFR 82 subpart F

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: The rule will include the
reconsideration of the sales restriction
as it relates to split systems. The
Agency was petitioned to reconsider
the part of the sales restriction that
included the sale of pre-charged split
systems. It restricted such sales to
certified technicians.  Since then, EPA
stayed that portion of the sales
restriction in response to the petition.
This rule will include the
determination of the Agency related to
the reconsideration. It addresses
environmental problems  of ozone
depletion resulting from emissions of
chlorofluorocarbons,
hydrochlorofluorocarbons, and other
ozone-depleting substances.  Through
restricting sales of certain pre-charged
items to persons certified as
technicians, emissions to the
atmosphere are decreased. The impact
on small businesses and governments
would be negligible, since persons can
become certified if the EPA
determination is a full restriction. Most
businesses and governments will have
at least one certified technician on
board. This action has no impact on
small business and State, local,  and
tribal governments.

 PREVENTION REQUIREMENTS: RISK
 MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS UNDER
 THE CLEAN AIR ACT, SECTION
 112(R)(7); THIRD PARTY AUDIT
 PROVISIONS
 Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
 Legal Authority: 42 USC 7412(r); 7601
 (a)(l)
 CFR Citation:  40 CFR 68
 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: This action establishes
 requirements,  incentives, and
 procedures for third party audits of
 Risk Management Plans  (RMPs) under
 40 CFR part 68 that would reduce the
 need for, and thus the incidence of,
 government audits of RMPs submitted
 by facilities that volunteer for such an
 audit. In this context, a "third party"
 is someone not employed by either an
 RMP-regulated facility or a government
 agency responsible for implementing
 the RMP program ("implementing
 agency").
 In the preamble to the final Risk
 Management Program rule, EPA
 endorsed the concept of using third
 parties to assist in rule compliance and
 oversight (61 FR 31705), provided that
 any such proposal: not weaken the
 compliance responsibilities of facility
 owner/operators; offer cost savings and
 benefits to the industry, community,
 and implementing agencies that
 significantly exceed the cost of
 implementing  the approach; lead to a
 net increase in process safety,
 particularly for smaller, less technically
 sophisticated facilities; and promote
 cost-effective agency prioritization of
 oversight resources. However, no
 specific criteria or requirements were
 specified in the RMP rule to regulate
 the activities of facilities, implementing
 agencies, or third parties with respect
 to third party assistance.
 A facility's participation in the third
 party audit program proposed by this
 action would be totally voluntary. For
 facilities who choose not to participate
 in the program, this action would have
 no effect. However  if a facility
 participates, this regulation would
 establish the requirements and
 regulatory incentives for their
participation. For participating sources,
 the action would offer the potential for
 reduced regulatory burden (while
 maintaining their compliance
responsibilities), flexible auditing
 options, and other benefits, provided
the source meets the applicable

ELECTROPLATING AMENDMENT
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7401 et seq
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 63 (Revision)
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: Since the promulgation of the
chromium electroplating NESHAP we
have been informed of several sources
that are experiencing difficulty in
complying with the concentration limit
for new sources even though they have
installed and operate composite mesh
pad scrubber technology similar or
identical to that used as the basis for
the MACT emission limit. These
sources operate new  state-of-the-art
plating tanks not encountered during
rule development which feature
enclosing hoods that completely cover
the surface of the plating  tank. This
covered tank design allows for effective
capture and ventilation at substantially
lower exhaust air flow rates than
otherwise encountered with more
conventional exterior hooding.
Although these sources exceed the new
source standard concentration limit of
0.015  mg/dscm, actual mass rate
emissions are more than 50 percent
lower than would otherwise be
achieved with more conventional
hooding and higher ventilation rates.
The chromium electroplating standard
will be amended to include this
alternative type of control system.

3289. REVIEW OF THE NATIONAL
AMBIENT AIR QUALITY STANDARDS
FOR PARTICULATE MATTER
Priority: Economically Significant
Unfunded Mandates: Undetermined
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7408; 42 USC
7409
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 50
Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory, July
1, 2002, Under the Clean Air Act, the
next standards review is to be
completed July 2002.
Abstract: On July 18, 1997, the EPA
published a final rule revising the
national ambient air quality standards
(NAAQS) for particulate matter (PM)
(62 FR 38652). While retaining the
PM10 standard levels, new standards
were added for fine particles (PM2.5)
to provide increased protection against
both health and environmental effects
of PM. On the same day, a Presidential
Memorandum (62 FR 38421, July 16,
1997) was published that, among other
things, directed EPA to complete the
next review of the PM NAAQS by July
2002. The EPA's plans and schedule for
the next periodic review of the PM
NAAQS were published on October 23,
1997 (62 FR 55201). As with other
NAAQS reviews, a rigorous assessment
of relevant scientific information will
be presented in a Criteria Document
(CD), and the preparation of this
document is currently under way by
the EPA's National Center for
Environmental Assessment. The EPA's
Office of Air Quality Planning and
Standards will also prepare a Staff
Paper (SP) for the Administrator which
will evaluate the policy implications of
the key studies and scientific
information contained in the CD and
additional technical analyses and
identify critical elements that EPA staff
believe should be considered in
reviewing the standards. The SP and
CD will be reviewed by the Clean Air
Scientific Advisory Committee
(CASAC) and the public; both will
reflect the input received through these
reviews. As the PM NAAQS review is
completed, the Administrator's
proposal to revise or reaffirm the PM
NAAQS will be published with a
request for public comment. Input
received during the public comment
period will be reflected  in the
Administrator's final decision which
will be published in July 2002.

Legal Authority: 42 USC 740l-767lq
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 93
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The Clean Air Act requires
EPA to promulgate rules that establish
the criteria and procedures for
determining whether highway and
transit plans, programs, and projects
conform to state air quality plans.
"Conformity" means that the
transportation actions will not cause or
worsen violations of air quality
standards or delay timely attainment of
the standards. The original conformity
rule was finalized on November 24,
1993, and most recently amended on
August 15,  1997. On March 2, 1999,
the U.S. Court of Appeals overturned
certain provisions of the 1997
conformity amendments. This
rulemaking will amend the conformity
rule in compliance with the court
decision. The rulemaking will formalize
the May 14, 1999 EPA guidance and
the June 18, 1999 DOT guidance that
was issued to guide action on this issue
until a rulemaking could be issued.
Specifically, the rulemaking will clarify
the types of projects that can  be
implemented in the absence of a
conforming transportation plan. It will
also explain EPA's process for
reviewing newly submitted air quality
plans and when those submissions can
be used for conformity purposes.

3295. PETITIONS  TO DELIST
HAZARDOUS AIR POLLUTANTS (E.G.,
MEK, EGBE, METHANOL, AND MIBK)
FROM SECTION 112(B)(1) OF THE
CAA
Priority:  Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: Clean Air Act Section
CFR Citation: Not Yet Determined
Legal Deadline: NPRM, Statutory,
February 28, 2000.
Abstract: The Agency has received 4
petitions to remove certain pollutants
(i.e., methanol, methyl ethyl ketone,
ethylene glycol butyl ether, and methyl
isobutyl ketone) from the list of
hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) under
Section 112(b) of the Clean Air Act.
The Agency must review the petitions
and either grant or deny the petition
within 18 months of the date the
complete petition was received. If the
Agency grants a petition, a notice of
proposed rulemaking will be published
in the Federal Register, allowing the
opportunity for public comment. If the
Agency denies a petition, a notice of
denial will be published in the Federal
Register providing an explanation for
such denial. If the Agency grants a
petition and ultimately removes the
pollutant from the HAP list then
sources emitting such pollutants would
not be required to meet MACT
emissions standards for the pollutant.
If on the other hand, the Agency denies
the petition, then MACT standards
would be issued as currently planned
under Section 112(c) and 112(d) of the
Clean Air Act for sources emitting such
pollutants. Depending on the 4
individual determinations, the Agency
will issue separate notices for each.

                   of the Clean Air Act, the Environmental
                   Protection Agency has  developed a list
                   of categories of sources of hazardous
                   air pollutants (HAP's).  The HAP's are
                   listed in section 112(b) of the Clean Air
                   Act. The Engine Test Facilities source
                   category are included on EPA's  list of
                   sources of HAP's. The Engine Test
                   Facilities source category includes any
                   facility engaged in the testing of
                   stationary or mobile engines, including
                   turbines and reciprocating engines and
                   rocket engines. Aircraft engine testing

Abstract: Under this action, EPA is
initiating the publication of a reference
test method that can be used to
quantify that portion of particulate
matter emissions that are solid at stack
conditions and are equal to or less than
2.5 uM in aerodynamic diameter. This
test method is to be used in
conjunction with existing and future
reference methods which are designed
to quantify condensable particulate and
particulate precursors. Condensable
particulate is that portion of particulate
matter emissions that are gaseous at
stack conditions but which quickly
condense to a solid form when released
to the atmosphere. Particulate
precursors are gaseous compounds
which become solids as a result of
chemical reactions in the atmosphere.
This test method supports the amended
National Ambient Air Quality Standard
(NAAQS) for particulate matter which
was promulgated on July 18, 1997. The
NAAQS was revised by adding new
standards for particulate of 2.5 uM
aerodynamic diameter. An important
foundation element of State efforts to
attain the NAAQS will be the
development of reliable inventories of
baseline particulate and particulate
precursor emissions. The emission
inventories developed should be based
upon credible source tests of individual
facilities or emission factors developed
from credible source tests. At the
present time there is no reference test
method available for quantifying the
filterable particulate matter of 2.5 uM
aerodynamic diameter from emission
sources.

                     Abstract: The Environmental
                     Protection Agency (EPA) has had
                     oversight and policy development
                     authority for Inspection and
                     Maintenance (I/M) programs since the
                     passage of the Clean Air Act (CAA) in
                     1970. The 1977 amendments to the
CAA mandated I/M for certain areas
with long-term air quality problems and
the 1990 amendments set forth
standards for implementation of I/M
programs. EPA used the statutory
requirements of the Act, including I/M
requirements for Federal facilities, to
promulgate regulations which states
would use in the development of their
I/M State Implementation Plans (SIPs).
Those rule requirements effectively
gave States certain authorities over the
Federal government. The Department of
Justice has now ruled that Federal
sovereign immunity was not fully
waived under the CAA for those
requirements and EPA should amend
its rule to remove the requirement that
States include those elements in their
SIPs. EPA is proposing to: (1) Amend
the Federal facilities I/M requirements
by removing that section; (2) correct
existing I/M SIP approval actions
which include these elements; (3)
establish new Federal facilities I/M
program requirements which Federal
facilities in I/M program areas must
meet in  order to comply with the Act;
and (4) designate for each State which
section of the Act Federal agencies
must comply with based on how that
State promulgated its I/M regulations.
These changes will have minimal to no
impact on the States as no new
requirements are being created. The
States are under no obligation, legal or
otherwise, to modify existing SIPs
meeting the previously applicable
requirements as a result of this action,
nor will emissions reduction credit be
affected. However, the changes will
clarify for affected Federal facilities
what they must do to meet the CAA
requirements by establishing new
regulations per those requirements.

3300. CONTROL OF METHYL
TERTIARY BUTYL ETHER (MTBE)
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: Not Yet Determined
CFR Citation: Not Yet Determined
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: EPA is considering taking
action to control the use of Methyl
Tertiary Butyl Ether (MTBE), which is
an organic compound that is primarily
used as a fuel additive in  gasoline.
MTBE has been used to meet the
oxygen requirement established by the
Federal Reformulated Gasoline Program
(RFC) established by the 1990
amendments to the Clean  Air Act
(CAA). Over 85 percent of reformulated
gasoline contains MTBE. EPA is
concerned that the widespread use of
MTBE may have resulted  in the
contamination of groundwater and
drinking water supplies, threatening
their future use. While current
detections levels are generally believed
to be below levels that may cause
public health concerns, low level
MTBE contamination may render water
unpotable due to offensive taste and
odor. In November of 1998, EPA
established a Blue Ribbon Panel to
investigate air quality benefits and
water quality concerns associated with
oxygenates, including MTBE, in
gasoline, and to provide independent
advice and recommendations on ways
to maintain air quality while protecting
water quality. In September, 1999, the
panel recommended that the use of
MTBE be substantially reduced. EPA is
now evaluating the Blue Ribbon Panel's
recommendations, and has conducted a
preliminary review of authorities
available to address risks associated
with MTBE. EPA intends to issue an
Advance Notice of Proposed
Rulemaking to inform the  public of this
preliminary inquiry, and to solicit
public comment on possible regulatory
action.

Abstract: The completed Secondary

included some aluminum die casting
facilities and aluminum foundries

its MACT  standard for aluminum die
casting and aluminum foundries, as
well as its assessment of the economic
impacts on small businesses in these
industries, on information on
representative facility practices
provided to EPA by these industries to
date. However, affected facilities in
these industries have expressed
concern that the information and
assumptions upon which EPA has
relied may be incomplete or may not
adequately represent the processes and
emissions  at such facilities. Therefore,
EPA will initiate a formal process to
collect further information from the
facilities in these industries on the
activities in which they engage and the
potential of these activities to
contribute to HAP emissions. After
evaluating this information, EPA will
make a new determination concerning
MACT requirements for both major

3305. RULEMAKING FOR PURPOSES
OF REDUCING INTERSTATE OZONE
TRANSPORT: RESPONSE TO MARCH
3, 2000 DECISION OF THE UNITED
STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR
THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
CIRCUIT
Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 74lO(a)(2)(D);
7410(k)(5)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 51 (Revision)
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: On October 27, 1998 (63 FR
57355), EPA issued a rule to reduce
smog in the eastern half of the country.
The rule required 22 States and the
District of Columbia to reduce
emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx),
which reacts with other chemicals in
the atmosphere to form smog. EPA
required these reductions because
pollution from each of these States was
transported by the wind and
significantly contributed to unhealthy
air quality in downwind states. In
response to litigation from several
parties on the NOx SIP call, the United
States Court of Appeals for the District
of Columbia issued a decision on
March 3, 2000 making it clear that EPA
and States can and should move
forward to implement this regional
strategy. The ruling remanded certain
relatively minor portions of the original
rule back to the EPA. This rulemaking
covers the portion of the rule associated
with the remanded issues: certain
cogeneration units, internal combustion
engines, the partial State requirements
for Georgia & Missouri and the
exclusion of Wisconsin. In this
rulemaking, EPA will consider the
partial State issue for Alabama &
Michigan as well.

                                               any of the hazardous air pollutants
                                               (HAP) listed in section 112(b) of the
                                               CAA. Flexible Polyurethane Foam
                                               Fabrication Operations was listed as a
                                               category of major sources based on
                                               previous emission information of
                                               methylene chloride HAP. This source
                                               category covers emissions from various
                                               polyurethane foam bonding operations,
                                               including foam gluing and flame
                                               lamination. Subsequent information
                                               reveals that the use of methylene
                                               chloride has substantially reduced due
                                               to OSHA regulations. Therefore, no
                                               major sources of HAP are anticipated
                                               in this source category. This action will

3308.  RULEMAKINGS FOR THE
PURPOSE OF REDUCING
INTERSTATE OZONE TRANSPORT
Priority: Economically Significant.
Major under 5 USC 801.
Legal Authority: Not Yet Determined
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 51
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The Clean Air Act (CAA)
requires that a state implementation
plan (SIP) contain provisions to prevent
a States' facilities or sources from
contributing significantly  to air
pollution that is "transported"
downwind to other States, exacerbating
their inability to meet the national
ambient air quality standards for ozone.
Through a 2-year effort known as the
Ozone Transport Assessment Group
(OTAG) , EPA worked in partnership
with the 37 easternmost States and the
District  of Columbia, industry
representatives, and environmental
groups to address ozone transport. This
multi-year collaboration resulted in the
most comprehensive analysis of ozone
transport ever conducted. The OTAG
States voted in favor of a range of
strategies to reduce nitrogen oxide
emissions from utilities and other major
sources. Building on the
recommendations of OTAG, EPA issued
a rule known as the NOx SIP Call
(10/27/98, 63 FR 57355) requiring 22
States and the District of Columbia to
submit revisions to their  SIPs to
address the regional transport of
nitrogen oxides (a precursor to ozone
formation known as NOx). By reducing
emissions of NOx, the actions directed
by these plans will decrease the
formation and transport of ozone across
State boundaries in the eastern half of
the US. Per the August 30, 2000 court
order, emission reduction measures are
required to be in place by May 31,
2004. The court did remand certain
minor provisions which EPA is now
addressing in a separate rulemaking —
see SAN 4433 in today's  Regulatory
Agenda.) In addition to the SIP Call
provisions, Federal Implementation
Plans (FIPs) may also be needed to
reduce regional transport if any affected
State fails to adequately revise its SIP
to comply with the NOx  SIP call (see
SAN 4096 in today's Regulatory
Agenda). In addition to the SIP Call
remedy, the Clean Air Act also gave
States the right to petition EPA to take
other Federal action to prevent ozone
transport that affects downwind States.
Accordingly, under section 126 of the
CAA, eight Northeastern  States filed
petitions requesting EPA to make
findings and require decreases in NOx
emissions from certain stationary
sources in upwind States that may
significantly contribute to ozone
nonattainment problems  in the
petitioning State. After analysis, EPA
found the petitions from  eight States
to be meritorious in whole or in part
(5/25/99, 64 FR 28250). Subsequently,
EPA issued a final rule on the petitions,
specifying a NOx emissions trading
program as the required Federal remedy
(1/18/00, 65 FR 2764). EPA is
coordinating all three approaches to
regional ozone control — i.e., SIP Call,
FIPs, and Section 126 actions — to
avoid duplication and maximize
effectiveness.

list under Section 112(c), on petition
of any person or on the Administrator's
own motion, whenever the
Administrator determines that no
source in the category emits hazardous
air pollutants (HAPs) in quantities
which may cause a lifetime risk of
cancer greater than 1 in one million
to the individual in the population who
is most exposed and that emissions
from no source  in the category exceed
a level which is adequate to protect
public health with an ample margin of
safety and that no adverse
environmental effect will result. As of
January 31, 2000, 1 petition to delist
a SC has been received. It contains
information on  HAP emissions,
exposures, health effects, human risks,
and potential ecological concerns as
well as the petitioner's explanation
why the 2-Piece Can Manufacturing
should be removed from the SC List.
The EPA will conduct a comprehensive
review of the petition received then
decide whether to grant or deny the
petition. Section 112(c)(9) requires that
within 12  months of receipt of a
petition, the Administrator shall either
grant or deny the petition by publishing
a written explanation of the reasons for
the Administrator's decision. We
believe that petitions to delist source
categories are non-significant actions
because they do not meet any of the
principles outlined in Section A above.

3310. REVISING REGULATIONS ON
AMBIENT AIR QUALITY MONITORING
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7401 et seq
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 58 (Revision); 40
CFR 53 (Revision); 40 CFR 50
(Revision)
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: Air pollution control
authorities use air quality data to
determine compliance with the
National Ambient Air Quality
Standards and in subsequent work to
develop air pollution mitigation
strategies. The data come primarily
from ambient air monitoring stations
run by State and local agencies,
although Federal, tribal, and industrial
organizations also run stations. The
design of the monitoring networks is
regulated under 40 CFR 58. This rule
was originally written in 1979 and
several revisions have been made in the
intervening years. Air pollution control
authorities have improved  their parts of
the network in response to changes in
air quality, advances in the
understanding of the movements and
health effects of air pollutants, and
developments in air pollution
measurement technology. EPA has also
cooperated with air pollution control
authorities to improve the networks,
but we have not revised the applicable
regulations comprehensively. The
proposed revisions would remove real
or perceived constraints on redeploying
air monitoring stations; more accurately
reflect the roles of EPA  and other
control authorities  in designing,
reviewing, and modifying networks;
bring provisions related to  quality
assurance up to date; and recognize
technological changes. The current
regulations require states to develop
plans to deploy air monitoring
networks, but they do not emphasize
administering the networks. States
generally develop new plans only when
new monitoring is needed, such as for
a new NAAQS.  The regulations should
be revised to reflect the roles  of EPA
and the State and local  agencies.

PART 63 NESHAP DELEGATIONS'
PROVISIONS-WORK PRACTICES
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: Not Yet Determined
CFR Citation: Not Yet Determined
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract:  40 CFR part 63 contains
OAR's air-toxics emissions regulations,
often referred to as "MACT"  rules or
"NESHAPS". We are revising some part
63 standards to reflect changes in
delegation provisions. We are also
revising some sections in the part 63
regulations to clarify what are
standards  and what are compliance
assurance  measures. The benefits of the
changes will include clarifying what
authorities in each standard can be
delegated  to State and local air
pollution control agencies and meshing
the standards with revisions previously
made to other part 63 regulations.

3312. FEDERAL PLAN FOR
COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL
SOLID WASTE INCINERATION UNITS

the Clean Air Act sections 111; 1990
Amendments to the Clean Air Act
sections 129; 1990 Amendments to the
Clean Air Act sections 301(a)(d)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 62
Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory,
December 1, 2002, Section 129 (b)(3)
of the CAA.
Abstract: The Clean Air Act
Amendments of 1990 directed the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
to set emission guidelines for existing
incinerators combusting commercial or
industrial waste under sections 111 and
129. Final emission guidelines for
Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste
Incineration (CISWI) were published on
December 1, 2000 (see 65 FR 75338).
In accordance with section 129, any
State with affected sources must submit
a State plan by December 3, 2001
describing how the State will
implement the emission guidelines for
existing CISWI. Section 129 requires
the Administrator to develop and
implement a Federal plan for existing
CISWI units located in any State which
has not submitted an  approvable plan
within 2 years of promulgation of the
emissions  guidelines.  In this CISWI
Federal plan rulemaking, EPA becomes
the implementing authority in those
instances where the State or local
agency has failed to submit a plan or
a plan has not yet been approved.
Therefore, consistent  with section
129(b)(3) of the Act, EPA is proposing
a plan that applies to  CISWI in any
State, tribe or locale that has not
submitted an approvable plan within
the time allotted. This action makes no
changes to the requirements in the rule,
                    and is intended to fulfill EPA's duty
                    under section 129(b)(3) to promulgate
                    a Federal plan as a gap-filling measure
                    until the State fulfills its statutory
                    obligations. When the State submits an
                    approvable State Plan, the Federal plan
                    will no longer apply to units in that
                    State.

                     Abstract: This rulemaking package will
                     propose two types of modifications to
                     the Code of Federal  Regulations:
                     revisions to parts 72 and 75 related to
                     the existing Acid Rain Program; and,
                     revisions to part 75 and part 97 that
                     are associated with the implementation
                     of the Federal Nox Budget Trading
                     Program.
                     The proposed revisions to parts 72 and
                     75 pertaining to the  Acid Rain Program
                     will improve the program's efficiency
                     and effectiveness. These revisions
                     include technical corrections and
clarifications to the monitoring
procedures that will improve quality of
the SO2 and NOx emissions data. Some
reporting requirements will be modified
to broaden and improve electronic
reporting provisions in order to reduce
industry burden and facilitate better
data management within the Agency.
In support of the Federal NOx Budget
Trading Program, EPA will propose
revisions to parts 72, 75, and 97. Parts
72 and 75 will be modified to introduce
procedural requirements for the
monitoring and reporting of output (i.e.,
electricity, steam, or heated water) for
electric generating units. The proposed
revisions to part  97 will satisfy a
commitment the  Agency made in the
January 18, 2000 final section 126 rule
to use output  for updating NOx
allowance allocations. Our analysis
predicts that updating allocations based
on output will reduce air pollution
nationwide and will result in more
efficient electricity generation.

RESINS: AMENDMENT
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 12 USC 1701 et seq
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 63 subpart 000
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The Amino and Phenolic
Wood Adhesives Association (APWAA)
has filed a petition for review of the
final rule. APWAA has identified two
areas of concern in their statement of
issue. First of all APWAA claims that
EPA was unjustified in going above the
floor level of control to include
equipment requirements equivalent to
the Consolidated Air Rule (CAR) for
new and existing sources. APWAA
believes EPA should use the floor level
of control for both new and existing
sources. For existing sources there is
no floor, and for new sources the floor
level of control is equivalent to the
requirements included in 40 CFR Part
60 Subpart VV. The second issue
identified by APWAA is the way the
requirements for non-reactor batch
vents were calculated. The current rule
has a 500 Ibs per year applicability
cutoff for non-reactor batch vents at the
facility level. APWAA has stated that
the cutoff should be applicable to
individual vents instead of the entire

3318.  • FEDERAL PLAN FOR SMALL
MUNICIPAL WASTE COMBUSTION
UNITS
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 1990 Amendments to
the Clean Air Act; sections  lll(d) 129
and 301(a)(d)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 62 (new)
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The Clean Air Act
Amendments of 1990 directed the EPA
to set  emission guidelines for existing
municipal waste combustion units
(MWCs) under Sections 111 and 129.
On 12/19/95, the EPA adopted
emission guidelines for MWCs under
the authority of Sections lll(d) and
129 of the Clean Air Act. These
emission guidelines covered all MWC
units located at plants with an
aggregate plant combustion capacity
larger than 35 tons per day of
municipal solid waste. Subsequent
litigation cancelled the emission
guidelines for small MWC units, but
the Court directed EPA to adopt a new
rule for small MWC units. This rule
was adopted on December 6, 2000. This
action is a follow-on activity to this
rulemaking. In this proposed MWC
Federal Plan for small units, EPA
becomes the implementing authority in
those instances where the state or local
Agency fails to submit a plan or a plan
has not yet been approved. This action
makes no changes to the rule and is
intended to fulfill EPA's duty under
Section 129(b)(3) to promulgate a
Federal Plan as a gap-filling measure
until the state fulfills its statutory
obligations. When the state submits an
approvable State Plan, the Federal Plan
will no longer apply to units in the
state.

                    Abstract:  Denver/Boulder is in the
                    process  of redesignating to attainment
                    with the ozone NAAQS; however, this
                    process  is not expected to be completed
                    by the 2001 summer ozone control
                    season.  They are asking that the
                    applicable federal RVP gasoline
                    standard of 7.8 psi (pounds per square
                    inch) be waived in favor of the 9.0 psi
                    RVP for gasoline sold in the area during
                    the 2001 summer ozone control season.
                    This action will address their request.

                                               Abstract: With this action, EPA will
                                               revise the accelerated phaseout
                                               regulations that govern the production,

                                               destruction of substances that deplete
                                               the ozone layer. The amendments will
                                               incorporate exemptions permitted
                                               under the Montreal Protocol on
                                               Substances that Deplete the Ozone
                                               Layer and recent changes to the Clean
                                               Air Act. Specifically, the amendments
                                               will create a process to exempt
                                               production and consumption of
                                               quantities of methyl bromide for critical

                                               phaseout of methyl bromide. Because
                                               this is an exemption, the rule will
                                               confer a benefit on affected entities.

3322. NEW SOURCE REVIEW (NSR)
IMPROVEMENT
Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: CAA as amended, title
I
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 51.160 to 51.166;
40 CFR 52.21; 40 CFR 52.24
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This action is to revise the
CAA new source review (NSR)
regulations, which govern the
preconstruction air quality review and
permitting programs that are
implemented by States and the Federal
Government for new and modified
major stationary sources of air
pollution. This rulemaking will
deregulate, that is, exclude from major
NSR program requirements those
activities of sources that, with respect
to air pollution, have little
environmental impact.  The rulemaking
will encourage pollution control and
pollution prevention projects at existing
sources. Control technology
requirements will be clarified with
respect to when and how they apply
to sources that are covered. The action
seeks to more clearly define the
appropriate roles and requirements of
sources, permitting authorities and
Federal land managers  and EPA in the
protection of air-quality-related values
in Federal Class I areas (i.e., certain
national parks and wilderness areas)
under the NSR regulations. State,  local,
and tribal permitting agencies will be
given more flexibility to implement
program requirements in a manner that
meets their specific air quality
management needs. Consequently, the
rulemaking decreases the number of
activities that are subject to NSR
requirements and also expedites the
permitting process for those sources
that are subject to NSR. This action is
designed to reduce the  regulatory
burden over  all industries without
respect to commercial size or capacity;
therefore, it should have no detrimental
impact on small businesses. This action
also addresses several pending petitions
for judicial review and administrative
action pertaining to NSR applicability
                                                         requirements and control technology
                                                         review requirements. Regulations that
                                                         will be affected are State

                                                         review of new sources and

3327. ADDITION OF METHOD 207 TO

METHOD FOR MEASURING
ISOCYANATES IN STATIONARY
SOURCE EMISSIONS
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7410
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 51
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The Clean Air Act
Amendments of 1990 listed certain
isocyanate compounds as hazardous air
pollutants (HAPs). The Agency does
not have any published test methods
that would measure air emissions  of
these isocyanate compounds from
stationary sources. This action would
add a validated test method to measure
isocyanate emissions to appendix  M of
part 51. Test methods in  part 51 can
be adopted by any State for use in any
regulation that requires the
measurement of any of the isocyanate
compounds on the HAP list. This
action would not impose any new
regulatory requirements that do not
already exist. It should benefit State
governments by providing them with a
validated test procedure for measuring
the emissions of isocyanate
compounds.

EPA has determined that some plants
may be major sources for one or more
HAPs. As a consequence, a regulation
(emission standards) is being developed
for the polyvinyl chloride industry, to
be promulgated by November 15, 2000.

3335. PHASE I FEDERAL
IMPLEMENTATION PLANS (FIPS) TO
REDUCE THE REGIONAL
TRANSPORT OF OZONE IN THE
EASTERN UNITED STATES
Priority: Economically Significant.
Major under 5 USC 801.
Unfunded Mandates: This action may
affect State, local or tribal governments
and the private sector.
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7410
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 52; 40 CFR 97
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This action would
promulgate Federal Implementation
Plans (FIPs) which require nitrogen
oxides (NOx) emissions decreases in 19
States and the District of Columbia. The
intended effect is to reduce the
transport of ozone (smog) pollution and
one of its main precursors — NOx —
across State boundaries in the eastern
half of the United States. On October
27, 1998, EPA published a final rule
(the "NOx SIP Call") which allowed
States 12 months to develop, adopt,
and submit revisions to their State
Implementation Plans (SIPs) to address
the transport problem. The
Administrator is required to promulgate
a FIP within 2 years of: (1) finding that
a State has failed to make a required
submittal or (2) finding that a submittal
is not complete or (3) disapproving a
SIP submittal. On May 25,1999, the
12 month NOx SIP Call deadline was
indefinitely stayed by the Court of
Appeals for the District of Columbia
Circuit. On June 22, 2000, the court
lifted the stay and gave States 128 days
from that date to submit SIPs. Thus,
the new SIP submittal date was October
30, 2000. To date, eleven States
(Virginia, West Virginia, Alabama,
Kentucky, North Carolina, South
Carolina, Tennessee, Illinois, Indiana,
Michigan, and Ohio) and the District
of Columbia have not submitted SIPs
that meet all of the aforementioned
criteria, as announced in a "findings"
rule published on December 26, 2000.
EPA is continuing to work with these
States to assist them in adopting State
plans that meet the requirements of the
NOx SIP Call, and is hopeful that States
will submit fully approvable plans.
(Note: The FIPs discussed here will
apply to all elements of the NOx SIP
call that were not remanded to EPA by
the court on March 3, 2000. The
portions of the SIP call that were
remanded to EPA will be covered
                                                         under "Phase 2" SIPs, and if necessary,
                                                         separate FIP actions will be prepared
                                                         for those.)

3336. NESHAP: WET-FORMED
FIBERGLASS MAT PRODUCTION
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7412
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 63
Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory,  April
1, 2001.
Abstract: The CAA required the EPA
to publish an initial list of all categories
of major and area sources of hazardous
air pollutants (HAPs) listed in section
112(b) of the CAA and to establish and
meet dates for promulgation of
emission standards for each of the
listed categories of HAP emissions
sources. The wet-formed fiberglass mat
production industry is not included in
the initial list of categories for
standards development but information
available to the Administrator suggests
that the industry is a major source of
HAP emissions and, as such, emission
standards shall be developed for this
industry. The standards are to be
technology-based and are to require the
maximum degree of reduction
determined to be achievable by the
Administrator. The EPA has
determined that the wet-formed
fiberglass mat production industry may
be reasonably expected to emit one of
the pollutants listed in section 112(b)
of the CAA. The purpose of this action
is to pursue a regulatory development
program such that emission standards
may be promulgated for this industry.
Emission standards for this industry
were proposed on May 26, 2000.

3337.  PROTECTION OF
STRATOSPHERIC OZONE:
RECONSIDERATION ON THE 610
NONESSENTIAL PRODUCTS BAN
Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: 42  USC 7414; 42 USC
7601;  42 USC 7671 to 7671(q)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 82(C)
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This action would propose to
extend the current class I and class II
bans on the sale and distribution of
nonessential uses of ozone-depleting
substances where sufficient substitutes
are already readily available. As part
of the initial 1993 rulemaking, EPA
banned the use of ozone-depleting
substances in  aerosols, pressurized
dispensers, and foams where
substitutes were available. Since that
rulemaking was issued, the phaseout of
production and consumption of class I
substances has become effective and
the Significant New Alternatives Policy
(SNAP) Program under section 612 has
been promulgated. The phaseout of
newly manufactured class I substances
and the identification of new
acceptable substitutes for both class I
and class II applications provide
compelling reasons to reconsider the
initial decisions regarding both
product-specific exemptions and the
decision to limit the ban's effect on
major sectors  that traditionally used
ozone-depleting substances. Most
domestic manufacturers have already
incorporated the non-ozone-depleting
substances in  their products. The
continued availability and use of
ozone-depleting substances in parts and
products manufactured abroad, which
                                                                            are sold or incorporated into larger

                                                                            interstate commerce in the United
                                                                            States, negatively affects the

                                                                            manufacturers who use substitute
                                                                            substances in their production.
                                                                            Therefore, it is appropriate to
                                                                            reconsider the applicability of the class
                                                                            I ban to both specific products and
                                                                            product categories. Amending these

3339. NAAQS: SULFUR DIOXIDE
(RESPONSE TO REMAND)
Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7409 CAA sec
109
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 50.4; 40 CFR
50.5
Legal Deadline: Final, Judicial,
December  31, 2000.
Abstract: On November 15, 1994, the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
proposed not to revise the existing 24-
hour and annual primary standards.
The EPA sought public comment on the
need to adopt additional regulatory
measures to address the health risk to
asthmatic individuals posed by short-
term peak  sulfur dioxide exposure.  On
March 7, 1995, EPA proposed
implementation strategies for reducing
short-term high concentrations of sulfur
dioxide emissions in the ambient air.
On May 22, 1996, EPA published its
final decision not to revise the primary
sulfur dioxide NAAQS. The notice
stated that EPA would shortly propose
a new implementation strategy to assist
States in addressing short-term peaks  of
sulfur dioxide. The new
implementation strategy - the
Intervention Level Program - was
proposed on January 2, 1997. In July
1996, the American Lung Association
and the Environmental Defense Fund
petitioned  the U.S. Court of Appeals for
the D.C. Circuit for a judicial review
of EPA's decision not to establish a
new 5-minute NAAQS. On January  30,
1998, the court found that EPA did  not
adequately explain its decision and
remanded  the case so EPA could
explain its rationale more fully. EPA
published a schedule for responding to
the remand in the May 5, 1998 Federal
Register. Since that notice, EPA has
continued to work on the proposed
response to the remand by reviewing
additional SO2 air quality information.
EPA published an informational notice
in the Federal Register  on January 9,
2001(66 FR 1665)

W to 40 CFR part 51. Such models are
used to predict ambient concentrations
of pollutants for programs ranging from
Prevention of Significant Deterioration
(PSD) to State Implementation Plans
(SIPs) for controlling air pollution
sources. Appendix W to 40 CFR part
51 fulfills a Clean Air Act mandate for
EPA to specify models for air
management purposes. This proposed
rulemaking enhances appendix W with
new and/or improved techniques.

                                     The industry is comprised of seven
                                     smelters located in four states. All have
                                     extensive control  systems for oxides of

                                     emissions may cause several smelters
                                     to exceed major source levels.

3342. NESHAP: MANUFACTURING OF
NUTRITIONAL YEAST
Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: 42  USC 7412 CAA sec
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 63
Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory,
November 15, 2000.
Abstract: Section 112 of the Clean Air
Act requires major sources of hazardous
air pollutants to achieve emission
reduction based on the maximum
achievable control technology (MACT).
This regulatory action will establish
this level of control for both new and
existing sources in the nutritional yeast
manufacturing industry. This industry
is currently comprised of 10 sources of
5 different manufacturers located in 8
different states. The only known HAP
emission from this source is
acetaldehyde. It is produced as a
byproduct during the fermentation
process. The final rule set maximum
emission limits of acetaldehyde, which
will be achievable by improved process
control to reduce formation of this
byproduct.

3344. NESHAP: TIRE
MANUFACTURING
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7401 et seq
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 63
Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory,
November 15, 2000.
Abstract: This is a 10-year MACT
covering the HAP emissions from the
manufacturing of Rubber tires. The
emission sources associated with the
rubber compound mixing (banbury);
extruding; calendaring; building; curing
and finishing are covered in this
MACT. Forty one facilities have been
initially identified. This includes
approximately 35 facilities of at least
10 tpy and 26 facilities of at least 25
tpy. Emissions are primarily associated
with rubber processing and the use of
HAP bearing solvent and cements.
Several facilities have eliminated
through substitution much of the HAP
bearing solvent and cements. However,
evaluation of the MACT and separation
of the rubber processing emissions from
HAP bearing solvents and cement will
reduce the number of affected facilities
to about 30. In addition, the tire cord
coating operations will also be
included. Typically these facilities are
separate non-colocated operations. The
major pollutant associated with tire
cord is formaldehyde. There are
approximately 12 affected major
facilities

Pollutants (NESHAP) for vegetable oil
production facilities as authorized
under section 112(d) of the Clean Air
Act (Act). The action is based on the
determination that vegetable oil
production plants emit organic
hazardous air pollutants  (HAPs)  listed
in section 112(b) of the Act. On July
16, 1992, EPA listed vegetable oil
production as a source for which
NESHAP are to  be promulgated.  On
December 3, 1993, EPA published a
schedule for promulgating NESHAP for
vegetable oil production  plants by
November 15, 2000. NESHAP
developed under section 112(d) apply
to both new and existing facilities.
NESHAP for existing facilities are to be
based on the average emission
limitation achieved by the best
performing 12 percent of existing
sources.

                     Abstract: During the development of
                     the National Emission Standard for
                     Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for
                     elastomers (Group I polymers and
                     resins) and thermoplastics (Group IV
                     polymers and resins) (RINs 2060-AD56
                     and 2060-AE37), many of the
                     provisions contained in the Hazardous
                     Organic NESHAP (HON) were
                     referenced directly by these polymers
                     and resins regulations due to
                     similarities in processes, emission
                     characteristics, and control
                     technologies. On January 17,  1997, the
                     EPA promulgated changes to  the HON
                     to remove ambiguity, to clearly convey
                     EPA intent, and to make the rule easier
                     to understand and implement in
                     response to industry petitions. It is
                     necessary to make parallel changes to
                     the polymers and resins NESHAP;
                     otherwise inconsistencies will exist for
                     NESHAPs regulating similar source
                     categories. An ANPRM was published
                     in the Federal Register on 11/25/96 (61
                     FR 59849), to explain the nature of
                     changes planned. Subsequently, six
                     litigants have petitioned for review of
                     the elastomers  and thermoplastics
                     regulations. Four companies have
                     petitioned EPA to reconsider specific
                     provisions in the thermoplastics
                     regulation. Revisions will be proposed
                     to parallel HON changes and to resolve
                     petitioners' issues. There are  no
                     impacts anticipated for small
                     businesses or State/local/tribal
                     governments.

                                               categories that are subject to MACT
                                               (maximum achievable control
                                               technology) standards contain only a
                                               few sources (e.g., less than five). For
                                               such categories, EPA plans to develop
                                               a generic MACT standard for these

CFR PART 61, FOR EMISSIONS OF
RADIONUCLIDES OTHER THAN
RADON FROM DOE FACILITIES

Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

Legal Authority: 42 USC 7412 CAAA
112(g) or (q); PL 95-95

CFR Citation: 40 CFR 61.93(a); 40 CFR
Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: Subparts H and I of 40 CFR
part 61 establish limits, under the
Clean Air Act, for radionuclide
emissions (other than radon) from
Department of Energy (DOE) and other
non-DOE federal facilities. These
Subparts require emission sampling,
monitoring, and calculations to identify
compliance with the standard. The
current air sampling methodology
required by the standards is embodied
in ANSI-N13. 1-1969, a consensus
guidance document that is incorporated
by reference in EPA's standards. That
guidance was updated in 1999, and
contains new technical
recommendations  (that differ from the
1969 version) for obtaining
representative air samples. In this rule,
EPA is updating subparts H and I to
incorporate the new sampling guidance,
ANSI-N13. 1-1999, and require its use
for new  facilities and for those
undergoing significant changes to
ventilation systems. Existing facilities
will be allowed to continue sampling
in accordance with the current
requirements.

3361. REMOVAL OF ALUMINUM DIE
CASTING AND ALUMINUM
FOUNDRIES FROM THE SECONDARY
ALUMINUM NESHAP AND
APPLICABILITY STAY FOR THESE
INDUSTRIES
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: Not Yet Determined
CFR Citation: Not Yet Determined
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: Under the final Secondary
Aluminum Production NESHAP, the
EPA based its MACT standard for
aluminum die casting and aluminum
foundries, as well as its assessment of
the economic impacts on small
businesses in these industries, on
information on representative facility
practices available to EPA. However,
affected facilities in these industries
expressed concern that the information
and assumptions upon which EPA has
relied may be incomplete or may not
adequately represent the processes and
emissions at such facilities.
Accordingly, in this action, EPA will
issue a proposed rule to remove the
aluminum die casting and aluminum
foundry industries from the present
secondary aluminum standard and to
stay the applicability of the present
standard to these industries while EPA
reevaluates the MACT requirements
applicable to such facilities. The EPA
will also initiate a formal process to
collect further information from the
facilities in these industries on the
activities in which they engage and the
potential of these activities to
contribute to HAP emissions. After
evaluating this information, EPA will
make a new determination concerning
MACT requirements  for both major
facilities and area sources in these
industries. Alternatively, if the
information collected by the EPA
shows there is not a need to develop
separate MACT requirements for these
industries, then the proposed
applicability stay and removal of these
industry sectors from the existing
secondary aluminum production
NESHAP will not be  finalized.

Administrator to list substances which
the Administrator finds to cause or
contribute to harmful effects on
stratospheric ozone, and Sections 604
and 605 require the Administrator to
promulgate regulations phasing out the
production and limiting the use of such
substances. The proposed regulation
will list and phase out the production
of chlorobromomethane (CBM), an
ozone depleting substance (ODS). In
late 1999, the Montreal Protocol was
amended to add CBM to the list of
substances  controlled by this
international agreement, to which the
United States is a signatory. Section
614 of the Act requires that U.S.
stratospheric protection regulations be
harmonized with (or more stringent
than) the provisions of the Montreal
Protocol. Entities that will be affected
by this regulation include producers  of
CBM; a segment of the explosion
protection industry (manufacturers and
distributors of CBM explosion
protection systems); and end-users of
such systems. Preliminary estimates
suggest that domestic production of
CBM is limited; some import of CBM
occurs. CBM has also been used as a
feedstock in the manufacture of a other
chemicals; today's action will not affect
this use. Because today's action only
affects the production, and not the use
(i.e., does not affect use of existing
inventories or stockpiles of CBM), and
since a two-year lead time has been
provided since the decision to phase
out CBM and the phaseout date, the
phaseout of CBM will have limited
economic and small business impacts.

The revision is being undertaken in
response to requests to clarify our
intent regarding what constitutes an
adequate landfill gas treatment system.
This action also clarifies our intent to
exempt from control landfill  gas that
is treated/upgraded to pipeline quality
natural gas. Furthermore, it clarifies
who is responsible for control of
untreated landfill gas that is sold. This
action is necessary to clarify  our intent
regarding the issues discussed above. It
will improve implementation and
compliance with this regulation. There
are no internal issues involved with the
proposal and direct final amendment,
and we anticipate no significant
adverse reaction related to this action
from industry, regulators, or
environmentalists.

Abstract: This action would remove
the requirement for sources to count
fugitive  emissions (such as equipment
leaks) when determining major source
status if they are in categories subject
to standards under section 111 or 112
promulgated after August 7, 1980.
Making this change removes
impediments to full approval of  permit

facilitates compliance with a settlement
agreement with environmental groups.
This action was proposed in 1994 and
reproposed in 1995, after which  work
                                     was stopped due to other priorities. It
                                     is now being re-tiered because so much

EPA to develop emission standards for
each major source category of
hazardous air pollutants. The standards
are to be technology-based and are to
require the maximum degree of
emission reduction determined to be
achievable by the Administrator of
EPA. The EPA has determined that two
plants in the ferroalloy production
industry are major sources for one or
more hazardous air pollutants. As a
consequence, production facilities are
among the HAP-emitting source
categories selected for regulation.

Priority: Routine  and Frequent
Legal Authority: Not Yet Determined
CFR Citation: 40  CFR 63
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: EPA is  proposing to approve
revisions to the National Emissions
Standards  for Hazardous Air Pollutants
(NESHAP) which concern the control
of hazardous air pollutant (HAP)
emissions  from the pulp and paper
industry. The proposed revisions would
apply only to the Weyerhaueser
Company's Flint River Operations in
Ogelthorpe, GA. The revisions are
proposed as one of EPA's steps to
implement the Final Project Agreement
for Weyerhaueser Company's XL
Project. The intended  effect of
proposing  these revisions is to regulate
emissions  of  HAP's in accordance with
the requirements  of the Clean Air Act,
as amended in 1990 and to facilitate
implementation of Project XL at
Weyerhaueser. The implementation
will result in superior environmental
performance  and  provide Weyerhaueser
with greater operational flexibility. The
                    rule will provide for reductions in HAP
                    emissions, measured as methanol.

                    Abstract: The proposed rule would

                    XL program for the Andersen
                    Corporation facility located in Bayport,
                    Minnesota. The  terms of the project are
                    defined in a draft Final Project
                    Agreement (FPA) which is being made
                    available for public review and
                    comment by the Federal Register
                    notice.  The proposed site-specific rule,
applicable only to the Andersen
Bayport facility, would facilitate
implementation of the project. Through
the notice, EPA solicits comment on
the proposed rule, the draft FPA, and
the project generally. The proposed
site-specific rule is intended to provide
regulatory changes under the Clean Air
Act (CAA or the Act) to implement
Andersen's XL project, which will
result in superior environmental
performance and, at the same time,
provide Andersen with greater
operational flexibility. The proposed
site-specific rule would change some of
the CAA requirements which apply to
the Andersen Bayport facility for the
Prevention of Significant Deterioration
(PSD) program, in particular existing
synthetic minor limits that apply to
some VOC sources in the Bayport
facility. Synthetic minor limits  are
operational and control limitations
which serve to limit the net emissions
increase associated with proposed new
or modified units or systems to less
than the applicable significance level
and thereby keep them out of PSD
review.

                    to President Clinton's implementation
                    strategy as outlined in a July 16, 1997
                    memorandum to EPA Administrator
                    Carol Browner, EPA had been
                    developing guidance and rules for
                  sensibly and cost-effectively meeting
                  the new standards. On November 17,
                  1998, EPA made available for comment
                  proposed implementation guidance on
                  implementing the revised ozone and
                  PM NAAQS and regional haze program.
                  On May 14, 1999, however, the U.S.
                  Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit

Inc. et al. v. USEPA, No. 97-1440 (May
14, 1999)) in which the Court stated,
among other things, that the revised 8-
hour ozone standard "cannot be
enforced." The Court also vacated the
revised PM10 NAAQS and remanded
the PM2.5 NAAQS. On June 28, 1999,
EPA requested a rehearing of the case
before the Court, but the request was
denied. The Department of Justice then
filed a petition in January 2000 seeking
U.S. Supreme Court review, and the
Court subsequently agreed to review
the case. EPA expects a decision from
the Supreme Court in early to mid-
2001. Until the appeals process is
exhausted, EPA does not intend to
issue final guidance for implementation
of the standards affected by the
Appeals Court's decision. Once the
Supreme Court renders a decision, EPA
will determine what actions may be
appropriate. Meanwhile, to assure that
areas were not left without an air-
quality standard, EPA took action on
7/6/00 to reinstate the previous 1-hr
standard in approximately 3000
counties across the U.S. EPA is also
developing guidelines for determining
Best Available Retrofit Technology

 3378. REVIEW OF MINOR NEW
 SOURCES AND MODIFICATIONS IN
 INDIAN COUNTRY

 Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant.
 Major status under 5 USC 801 is
 undetermined.

 Legal Authority: 42 USC 7410

 CFR Citation: Not Yet Determined

 Legal Deadline: None

 Abstract: As required by the Clean Air
 Act's New Source Review (NSR)
 provisions, the EPA is proposing
 Federal regulations governing
 preconstruction permitting of minor
 and major stationary sources of air
 pollution in Indian country. Pursuant
 to the Tribal Air Rule, eligible Indian
 Tribes may receive EPA authorization
 to develop and implement such
 programs. The Federal NSR permitting
 programs would be effective throughout
 Indian country and would be
 implemented by EPA if eligible Indian
 Tribes do not elect, or do not receive
 authorization, to manage such
 programs. The proposed Federal minor
 NSR rule would require sources  in
 Indian country, with certain exceptions,
 to obtain a permit prior to construction
 if they are: (1) new minor sources, (2)
 existing minor sources undergoing
 modification, or (3) existing major
 sources undergoing minor modification.
 The proposed rule also would allow
 new or existing stationary sources to
 accept enforceable limits on their
 production capacity or hours of
 operation in order to be considered
 minor sources and avoid being subject
 to other Clean Air Act requirements
 such as  the title V operating permit
 program. The proposed Federal major
 NSR rule would require sources in
 nonattainment areas in Indian country
to obtain a permit prior to construction
 if they are: (1) new major sources, or
 (2) existing major sources undergoing
 major modification. These rules would
 not impose any mandates on Tribal
 governments to implement NSR
permitting programs. Tribal
governments may be affected, however,
insofar as they own or operate sources
that must obtain a permit from the EPA
under the final Federal permitting
program regulations.

3379.  FEDERAL MAJOR NEW
SOURCE REVIEW (NSR) PROGRAM
FOR NONATTAINMENT AREAS
Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7401  et seq
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 124; 40 CFR
51.165; 40 CFR 52.10; 40 CFR 52.24
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The Clean Air Act (Act) (title
I, part D) requires that construction
permit programs for new or modified
major stationary sources of air  pollution
be established for areas not attaining
the NAAQS. This action will add
Federal rules  at 40 CFR 52.10 for
permitting the construction of new or
modified major stationary sources in
certain nonattainment areas where
State, local, or tribal rules in whole or
in part are not in place that meet the
statutory permitting requirements.
These rules will basically incorporate
the requirements for State
nonattainment NSR permit programs,
codified at 40 CFR 51.165(a), with
supplemental provisions added to make
explicit the permit requirements  of
section 173 of the Act and certain long-
standing policies regarding
nonattainment NSR permitting. This
action will also change 40 CFR 52.24
to specify that the requirements of 40
CFR 52.10 govern any permits issued
in certain nonattainment areas where
acceptable nonattainment NSR rules are
not in place. Changes to 40 CFR part
124 will specify that the permit
processing, public participation, and
permit appeal requirements that
otherwise apply to Federal PSD
permitting will also apply, in most
cases, to Federal nonattainment NSR
permitting under 40 CFR 52.10.

                    Legal Deadline: None
                    Abstract:  Section 176(c) of the Clean
                    Air Act prohibits Federal entities from
                    taking actions which do not conform
                    to the State implementation plan (SIP)
                    for the attainment and maintenance of
                    the national ambient air quality
                    standards  (NAAQS). In November 1993,
                    EPA promulgated two sets of
                    regulations to implement section
                    176(c). First, on November 24, EPA
                    promulgated the Transportation
                    Conformity Regulations to establish the
                    criteria and procedures for determining
                    that transportation plans, programs, and
                    projects which are funded under title
                    23 U.S.C.  or the Federal Transit Act
                    conform with the SIP. Then, on
                    November 30, EPA promulgated
                    regulations, known as the General
Conformity Regulations, to ensure that
other Federal actions also conformed to
the SIPs. Since 1993, EPA has amended
the transportation conformity rule three
times in response to stakeholders'
requests. The EPA is working on a
separate revision to address
transportation conformity in
transitional areas which will be final
by December 1998. The EPA has not
reviewed or revised the General
Conformity Regulations since their
1993 promulgation. Several Federal
agencies have identified concerns over
the implementation of the General
Conformity Regulations, including the
requirements for areas designated
nonattainment for the newly
promulgated NAAQS. In conjunction
with an ad hoc work group of
representatives from several Federal
agencies, EPA will review the
implementation of the General
Conformity Regulations. The EPA will
then propose and promulgate any
appropriate revision to those
regulations.

plans to prevent air pollution levels
from reaching the significant harm level
(SHL) for CO, O3, SO2, NOx, and PM.
Appendix L provides example guidance
to the States on appropriate courses of
action to take at each episode stage
(i.e., alert, warning, and emergency) to
ensure the SHL is not reached. These
requirements were developed in the
1970's, based on the NAAQS from that
era. Since that time, ambient air quality
levels have decreased nationwide.
Today, many areas/sources that no
longer need episode plans must still
develop them.  This rule would update
and simplify the criteria used to
determine which areas would require
episode plans.  Areas with no more than
one exceedance of the Alert level  over
the past 5 years would not need to
develop emergency episode plans.
Sources with the potential to cause
exceedances of the SHL due to a
process/control equipment malfunction
would need to  develop source
contingency plans to prevent (and to
respond to) such malfunctions.
Appendix L would also be revised to
reflect the revised program
requirements. The result will be a
sensible, credible program replacing an
outdated program.

Abstract: The U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) Radiological
Emergency Response Plan (RERP)
establishes a framework for timely,
coordinated EPA action to protect
public health and safety and the
environment in response to a peacetime

RERP was approved in 1986.  This new
revision updates authorities,
responsibilities, capabilities, and
procedures for implementing effective
radiological emergency response
actions by EPA Offices. The RERP
presents the EPA organizational
structure and concept of operations for
responding to radiological incidents as
a participant in a Federal multi-agency
response using the Federal Radiological
Emergency Response Plan (FRERP) and
the Federal Response Plan (FRP), and
the National Oil and Hazardous
Substances Pollution Contingency Plan
(NCP). This revision incorporates recent
changes to the  FRERP and NCP, and
many other policy updates. In short,
this revision ensures that EPA
maintains a comprehensive strategy to
provide organized, effective assistance
to State and local governments in the
event of a radiological emergency.

                                                        112(b) of the Clean Air Act. As a result,
                                                        the source category was included on
                                                        the initial  list of HAP-emitting
                                                        categories  scheduled for promulgation
                                                        within 10  years of enactment of the
                                                        Act. There are several emission

                                                        (for example, aerospace manufacturing
                                                        and wood furniture manufacturing) that
                                                        already address emissions from paint
                                                        stripping operations. We are currently
                                                        in the process of determining if there
                                                        are any other major sources of HAP
                                                        emissions  from paint stripping

Amendments give EPA the authority to
issue on-the-spot field  citations for
minor violations of the Clean Air Act,
with penalties of up to $5,000  per day
of violation. Section 113(d) of the Act
requires the field citation program to
be implemented through regulations
which provide the informal hearing
procedures. These hearing procedures
are not required to be as rigorous as
those  imposed by the Administrative
Procedures Act (APA), but nevertheless
must provide due process. Agency
guidance providing appropriate
penalties for specific minor violations
will be prepared for EPA employees
and made available to the regulated
community. Training on the issuance
of field citations will also be
developed.

                    Abstract: On October 27, 1998, EPA
                    published a final rule (the "OTAG SIP
                    Call") making a finding of significant
                    contribution and assigning statewide
                    NOx emission budgets to 22 States and
                    the District of Columbia for purposes
                    of reducing regional transport of ozone
                    and its precursor, NOx. Subsequent to
                    the promulgation of the SIP call, EPA
                    and the States of Connecticut,
                    Massachusetts and Rhode Island signed
                    a memorandum of understanding that
                    obligated EPA to propose to redistribute
                    the budgets assigned to the three States
                    in a different way. This action would
                    carry out that obligation. This
                    redistribution would not lead to an
                    increase in the overall budget for the
                    three States.

Maryland, and Delaware) and the
District of Columbia submitted
individual petitions to EPA in
accordance with section 126 of the
Clean Air Act (CAA). Each petition
specifically requests that EPA make a
finding that nitrogen oxides (NOx)
emissions from certain stationary
sources in other States significantly
contribute to  ozone nonattainment and
maintenance  problems with respect to
the 1-hour and 8-hour ozone standards
in the petitioning State. If EPA makes
such a finding of significant
contribution,  EPA is authorized to
establish Federal emissions limits for
the sources. The petitions rely on the
analyses from EPA's NOx SIP call. The
sources targeted by the petitions are
large electricity generating units and
large non-electricity generating units, as
defined in EPA's NOx SIP call. The
CAA requires EPA to take final action
on the petitions within 60 days of
receipt, but may extend the deadline
for up to 6 additional months to allow
for public process. The EPA took
rulemaking action on similar petitions
from 8 other Northeastern States that
were submitted in 1997.

PRE-EXISTING PM10 STANDARDS NO
LONGER APPLICABLE IN NORTHERN
ADA COUNTY/BOISE, IDAHO
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7401 et seq
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 50.6(d); 40 CFR
52.676; 40 CFR 81.313
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The EPA had previously
taken action to revoke the PM-10
national ambient air quality standards
(NAAQS) for the Boise/Ada County
area in anticipation that a revised PM-
10 NAAQS would soon be in place.
However, the DC Circuit court
subsequently vacated the revised PM-
10 NAAQS, the effectiveness of which
served as the underlying basis for
EPA's decision to revoke the pre-
existing PM-10 NAAQS. Therefore, in
order to protect public health in the
Boise/Ada County area, EPA is
proposing to reinstate the pre-existing
PM-10 NAAQS. Without this action
there would be no Federal PM-10
NAAQS applicable to this area. This
action is tentatively subject to the terms
of a settlement agreement that was
signed by all parties in January 2001.
A Federal Register notice of the
proposed settlement requesting public
comment was published January 30,
2001 in accordance with section 113(g)
of the Act. Written comments on the
proposed settlement agreement must be
received by EPA (Mike Prosper) by
March 1, 2001. Unless EPA or DOJ
determine, following the comment
period, that consent is inappropriate
the settlement agreement will then be
executed by the parties. This action
will then be fully subject to the terms
of the settlement agreement.

3396. PROJECT XL SITE-SPECIFIC
RULEMAKING FOR GEORGIA-PACIFIC
CORPORATION'S FACILITY IN BIG
ISLAND, VIRGINIA
Priority:  Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7401 et seq
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 63 (Revision)
Legal Deadline:  None
Abstract: Under the Project XL
program, the EPA is supporting a
project for the Georgia-Pacific
Corporation facility located in Big
Island, Virginia.  The EPA is
promulgating this rule, applicable only
to the Georgia-Pacific Big Island
facility, to help implement the project.
Under the XL project,  Georgia-Pacific
will install and operate the first
commercial scale black liquor
gasification system in the United States.
This system will provide superior air
emissions reductions and energy
benefits compared to use of
conventional recovery technology for
black liquor in the pulp  and paper
industry. However, since this will be
the first commercial scale
demonstration of this technology, there
is some risk that the technology will
take longer than  planned to work
properly  or may  not ever work
properly. If either of these scenarios
happens, Georgia-Pacific requires relief
from otherwise applicable air emission
standards to allow time for the new
technology to achieve expected
performance or, in the event of failure,
to allow time for Georgia-Pacific to
build conventional recovery technology
that will meet applicable standards.
Without this relief, Georgia-Pacific
would not undertake commercialization
of this promising technology. Therefore,
this rule provides relief (in the form
of limited duration compliance
extensions)from otherwise applicable
hazardous air pollutant emission
standards, as needed during the
conduct of the XL project. The specific
standard amended by this rule is:

STRATOSPHERIC OZONE: LISTING

DEPLETING SUBSTANCES—N-
PROPYLBROMIDE
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7414; 42 USC
7601; 42 USC 7671 to 7671q
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 82 (Revision)
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This rule proposes to add n-
propylbromide (nPB) to the list of
acceptable substitutes for class I and
class II ozone depleting substances
used as solvents for general metals,
precision, and electronics cleaning, as
well as in aerosol solvent applications.
This would provide another alternative
to solvents with higher ozone depletion
potential that industry is interested in
using. The rule would propose finding
nPB not acceptable as a substitute for
use in adhesives due to its toxicity and
the greater emissions from that
application. The rule also would
propose specific conditions on the use
of nPB as a solvent. These might
include limiting the specific
applications in which it may be used
to those with low emissions and
requiring exposure limits consistent
with industry practices. This will
ensure that nPB is used in a manner
that is safe and environmentally
protective. OSHA does not currently
regulate nPB. EPA would revise our
ruling to  adopt whatever OSHA
requires if OSHA later regulates the use
of nPB. If finalized as proposed, this
rule would be consistent with most
existing industry practices and would
impose little or no burden on industry.

use in the event of a nuclear accident
to protect the general public from the
adverse health effects associated with
the ingestion of drinking water that is
contaminated with radioactive material.
The PAG will be incorporated into the
Revision of the PAG Manual. The draft
                   guidance will be submitted to the PAG
                   Subcommittee of the Federal
                   Radiological Preparedness Coordinating
                   Committee (FRPCC) for review and
                   comment. Members of the PAG
                   subcommittee include representatives
                   from DOE, DOD, FEMA, NRC, HHS,
                   USDA, DOT, and the  Conference of
                   Radiation Control Program Directors
                   (CRCPD). When a consensus among the
                   representatives is reached, the guidance
                   is recommended to the full FRPCC  for
                   endorsement. After that endorsement is
                   obtained a notice of the availability of
                   a revised EPA 400-R-92-001, Manual of
                   Protective Action Guides and Protective
                   Actions for Nuclear Incidents will be
                   published in the Federal Register. This
                   action is temporarily delayed until the
                   FDA's revised PAGs for Food can be
                   evaluated.

Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This voluntary action will
allow low-activity mixed radioactive
wastes to be disposed in facilities that
meet the design requirements for
RCRA-C disposal cells. The wastes
intended to be disposed of in these
cells are mixed wastes, consisting of a
chemically hazardous component and
low levels of radioactivity. These
wastes are anticipated to arise in the
commercial sector from various
sources. The rule is intended to
increase disposal options for these
wastes and offer a streamlined
regulatory process which melds
hazardous chemical protection and
radioactivity protection requirements
while protecting public health and
safety. The rule does not mandate a
disposal method, but rather permits an
alternative to existing disposal
methods. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory
Commission is anticipated to be the
implementing Agency for the
application of this rule.

                    194 WASTE ISOLATION PILOT PLANT
                    COMPLIANCE CRITERIA

                    CFR Citation: 40 CFR 194.8(b)
                    Legal Deadline: None
                    Abstract: This rule would change some
                    of the language in Section 194.8(b) of
                    the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP)
                    Compliance  Criteria without deleting
                    any of the requirements for the
                    Department  of Energy's (DOE)
                    compliance. Section 194.8(b) explains
                    the process by which EPA inspects and
                    approves waste characterization
                    processes at DOE transuranic waste
                    sites that send waste to the WIPP. The
                    194.8(b)  process involves a public
                    comment period. Most of the language
                    in Section 194.8{b) will be left intact.
                    The most significant change would
                    eliminate a statement that EPA  will
                    follow the 194.8(b) notice-and-comment
                    process each time a previously-
                    approved site seeks to send a different
                    "waste stream" to the WIPP. Other
                    changes  would correct certain
                    terminology and clarify the important
                    elements of  our inspections. This rule
                    would eliminate the ambiguity  of the
current language and replace it with:
(1) a site can ship waste once EPA has
approved it using a notice-and-
comment process; (2) EPA will perform
follow-up inspections under a separate
authority that does not call for public
comment; and (3) EPA can disallow
shipment if an initial or follow-up
inspection reveals significant
compliance issues. The main purpose
of this revision is to eliminate EPA's
obligation to approve DOE sites on  a
waste stream by waste  stream basis.
Our understanding of DOE's operations
has improved considerably since
194.8(b) went final in May 1998. We
now recognize that approving sites  by
waste stream,.using a comment period,
is unnecessarily time-consuming for
EPA staff, confusing for DOE, and
generates almost no public comment. In
addition, repetitive inspections at sites
are expensive and provide little
additional regulatory confidence. This
rule will save money and will greatly
improve the effectiveness of our
interactions with DOE.

3441. • DATA REQUIREMENT FOR
PESTICIDE REGISTRATION;
ENVIRONMENTAL FATE AND
ECOLOGICAL  EFFECTS
Priority: Substantive,  Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 7 USC 136(a) to I36(y)
CFR  Citation: 40 CFR 158
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: EPA  will update the data
requirements specifically necessary for
the Agency to evaluate the registrability
of pesticide products. The revisions
will clarify all  data requirements to
reflect current practice. Procedural and
explanatory sections of the current
regulations will be amended to make
them consistent with the revised data
requirements and new use indexing.
EPA  intends to accomplish this
revision through a series of proposals,
covering different data disciplines and
product types.  This proposal covers the
                                                          data requirements for environmental
                                                          fate and terrestrial and aquatic non-
                                                          target organisms (ecological effects).

pesticide containers by establishing
                    standards for container design, labeling
                    and refilling; and establish
                    requirements for containment of
                    stationary bulk containers and for
                    containment of pesticide dispensing
                    areas.

criteria for completeness of
applications, and will specify or refer
to a definition of the various classes
of antimicrobial pesticide use patterns
and the associated data and labeling
requirements that would be consistent
with the degree and type of risk
presented by each class. In addition,
the regulation will also include labeling
standards for public health
antimicrobial products. This regulation
will also implement some general
provisions of FIFRA pertaining to all
pesticides, including labeling
requirements. EPA intends to
promulgate these last provisions
separately from the antimicrobial
portion of the proposal.

PESTICIDE EMERGENCY EXEMPTION
REGULATIONS
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 7 USC I36(p)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 166
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: EPA will propose revisions
to its regulations on emergency
exemptions under section 18 of the
Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and
Rodenticide Act. Emergency
exemptions allow temporary use of a
pesticide not in accordance with
registration requirements when
emergency conditions exist. In the 1995
Presidential Reinvention Initiative, EPA
identified a number of issues  and
options for  change, which have been
refined through informal discussions
with States, user groups, and  other
stakeholders. EPA is considering
revisions in four areas: 1) Options for
increased authority for States to

as part of the  Program. It also will
address certain issues related to
implementing the Program. The major
actions in 2001-2003 will be the
standardization and validation of assays
in the screening battery and the
completion of the priority setting
system.

                  Abstract: EPA is proposing a test rule
                  under section 4(a) of the Toxic
                  Substances Control Act (TSCA)
                  requiring manufacturers and processors
                  of certain chemicals to fulfill data
                  needs identified by the Agency for
                  Toxic Substances and Disease Registry
                  (ATSDR), the National Toxicology
                  Program (NTP), and EPA pursuant to
                  the Comprehensive Environmental
                                    Response, Compensation, and Liability
                                    Act (CERCLA) section 104(i).

                                    Under CERCLA, ATSDR is to establish
                                    a list of priority hazardous substances
                                    found at superfund sites, develop
                                    toxicological profiles for the hazardous
                                    substances, identify priority data needs,
                                    and establish a research program
                                    obtaining the necessary data. This
                                    action is a component of ATSDR's
                                    research program.

3457. LEAD-BASED PAINT
ACTIVITIES; TRAINING AND
CERTIFICATION FOR RENOVATION
AND REMODELING
Priority: Other Significant. Major under
5 USC 801.
Unfunded Mandates: Undetermined
Legal Authority: 15 USC 2603 TSCA
title IV; PL 102-550 sec 402(c)(3)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 745
Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory,
October 28, 1996.
Abstract: Under section 402(c)(2) of the
Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA)
Title IV, EPA conducted a study of the
extent to which persons engaged in
renovation and remodeling activities in
target housing are exposed to lead in
the conduct of such activities or disturb
lead and create a lead-based paint
hazard. EPA must use the results of this
study and consult with interested
parties to determine which categories
of renovation and remodeling activities
require training and certification. EPA
must then revise the training and
certification regulations originally
developed for individuals performing
lead-based paint abatement under
section 402(c)(a) of TSCA Title IV to
apply them to the renovation and
remodeling categories. If EPA
determines that any category does not
require certification, EPA must publish
an explanation of the basis for that
determination.

RULE AMENDMENTS
Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: 15 USC 2607(a) TSCA
8(a)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 710
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This action would amend the
current Toxic Substances Control Act
(TSCA) Inventory Update Rule (IURJ to
require chemical manufacturers to
report to EPA data on exposure-related
information and the industrial and
consumer end uses of chemicals they
produce or  import. Currently, EPA
requires chemical manufacturers to
report the names of the chemicals they
produce, as well as the locations of
manufacturing facilities and the
quantities produced. About 3,000
facilities reported data on about 9,000
unique chemicals during the last
reporting cycle under the IUR. Data
obtained would be used by EPA and
others to: better understand the
potential for chemical exposures;
screen the chemicals now in commerce
and identify those of highest concern;
establish priorities and goals for their
chemical assessment, risk management
and prevention programs, and monitor
the programs' progress; encourage
pollution prevention by identifying
potentially  safer substitute chemicals
for uses of potential concern; and
enhance the effectiveness of chemical
risk communication efforts.
Additionally, EPA will consider other
amendments to the IUR. These include
removing the inorganic chemicals
exemption; providing the information
to better assess and manage risks of
inorganic chemicals; improving the
linkages of  IUR data to other data
sources to enhance the data's
usefulness;  and altering the confidential
business information (CBI)  claim
procedures  to reduce the frequency of
CBI claims, allowing the public greater
                     access to relevant information on toxic
                     chemicals. EPA has held meetings with
                     representatives of the chemical
                     industry, environmental groups,
                     environmental justice leaders, labor
                     groups, State governments and other
                     Federal agencies to ensure public
                     involvement in the TSCA Inventory
                     Update Rule Amendments Project.

3460. TEST RULE;  HAZARDOUS AIR
POLLUTANTS(HAPS)
Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: 15 USC 2603 TSCA
4; 42 USC 7412 CAA 112; 42 USC 7403
CAA 103;  15 USC 2611 TSCA  12
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 790 to 799
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: EPA is proposing health
effects testing under TSCA section 4 in
support of programs and activities
required under section 112 of the Clean
Air Act (CAA), governing Hazardous
Air Pollutants (HAPs). Section 112 of
the CAA directs EPA to determine the
risk to health and the environment
remaining after application of
technology-based emissions standards
to major and area sources. Section 112
also sets forth a mechanism for revising
and modifying the statutory list of 189
HAPs under section 112(b), and
requirements for an accidental release
control program. These data will also
be important for the right-to-know
program given the large release of these
chemicals  to the atmosphere. In order
to implement these and other programs
and requirements under section 112,
EPA must identify the health and
environment effects of potential
concern from exposure to HAPs,
ascertain the minimum data needed to
adequately characterize those health
and environmental effects, and assess
the risks posed by HAPs. In addition,
under section 103(d), EPA is required
to conduct a research program on the
short- and long-term effects of air
pollutants on human health, ascertain
the minimum data needed to
adequately characterize those health
and environmental effects, and assess
the risks posed by HAPs.

3461. TEST RULE; CERTAIN HIGH
PRODUCTION VOLUME (HPV)
CHEMICALS
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 15 USC 2603; 15 USC

Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This action is related to a
challenge to industry on the eve of
Earth Day, April 21, 1998, to come
forward quickly with needed test data
on high production volume (HPV)
chemicals. This challenge encompasses
approximately 2,800 chemicals which
are manufactured (including imported)
in the aggregate at more than 1 million
pounds on an annual basis. The data
needed on these chemicals are: acute
toxicity, repeat dose toxicity,
developmental and reproductive
toxicity; mutagenicity; ecotoxicity and
environmental fate. This rule will
require testing and recordkeeping
requirements for certain chemicals for
which industry does not voluntarily
agree to provide testing in a timely
manner. The action is part of the
Chemical Right-to-Know Initiative,
which is described in the Regulatory
Plan.  Industry has volunteered to
conduct needed testing on over 2155
of these HPV chemicals. The first rule
proposed testing for 37 unsponsored
HPV chemicals with substantial worker
exposure. The proposed rule was
published in the Federal Register on
December, 26, 2000.

Abstract: EPA is requiring
manufacturers (which is defined by
statute to include importers) and
processors of 38 chemical substances of
interest to the Occupational  Safety and
Health Administration (OSHA) to
conduct testing for in vitro dermal
absorption rate testing. These
chemicals, and others, were  designated
for in vitro dermal absorption rate
testing in the 31st, 32nd, and 35th
Reports of the TSCA section 4(e)
Interagency Testing Committee (ITC) to
the EPA. Each of the chemical
substances included in this proposed
rule is produced in an amount equal
to or greater than one million pounds
per year. In addition, each of the
chemicals in this proposed rule was
identified in the National Occupational
Exposure Survey (NOES) has having a
total potential worker exposure of
greater than 1,000 workers. OSHA has
indicated that it needs quantitative
measures of dermal absorption rate in
order to evaluate the potential hazard
of these chemicals to workers.

sec 5
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 704; 40 CFR 721
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: EPA regulates the commercial
development of new chemicals that
have completed premanufacture notice
(PMN) review. In a PMN review, the
Agency assesses whether or not a
chemical's manufacture, import,
process, distribution, use, or disposal
outside  the activities described in the
PMN may present an unreasonable risk.
EPA will issue Significant New Use
Rules (SNURs) requiring 90-day
notification to EPA from any
manufacturer, importer, or processor
who  would engage  in activities that are
designated as significant new uses.
Under the Expedited Follow-up Rule
(EFUR)  which became effective on
October 12, 1989, EPA will identify
such new chemicals and publish them
in a batch SNUR 3-4 times per year.
Chemicals that were subject to a
proposed SNUR before the effective
date  of the EFUR or do not qualify
under the EFUR, may be regulated
                                                          individually by notice and comment

Abstract: When the Agency determines
that uncontrolled manufacture, import,
processing, distribution, use or disposal
of a premanufacture notification (PMN)
substance may present an unreasonable
risk, it may issue a section 5(e) consent
order to limit these activities. However,
such orders apply only to the PMN
submitter. Once the new substance is
entered on the Toxic Substances
Control Act (TSCA) chemical inventory,
others can manufacture, import or
process the substance without controls.
Therefore, EPA extends the controls to
apply to others by designating
manufacture,  import or processing of
the substances for uses without the
specified controls as significant new
uses. Under the Expedited Follow-Up
Rule, which became effective on
October 10, 1989 (54 FR 31314), EPA
routinely publishes batch SNURs
containing routine section 5(e) and
non-5(e) SNURs. However, certain
activities, such as modifications,
withdrawals, revocations, and SNURs
upon which comments are received in
the direct final publication process, are
subject to notice and comment
rulemaking and are listed below.

          significant new use rule (SNUR) under
section 5 of the Toxic Substances
Control Act (TSCA) covering certain
perfluoroalkyl sulfonyl-containing
chemical substances. This SNUR would
require companies who wanted to
manufacture or import these chemicals
for the significant new uses described
in the proposed rule to submit a
Significant New Use Notice (SNUN) to
the Agency at least 90 days prior to
beginning those activities.

Abstract: On October 2, 1991, EPA
proposed a regulation of acrylamide
and NMA grouts based on the
unreasonable risk associated with their
usage. EPA's rule would prohibit the
manufacture, distribution in commerce,
and use of acrylamide grout. In
February 1996, EPA reopened the
record for 30 days to take additional
comments, specifically to seek data on
the relative durability of acrylamide
and NMA grouts. The Agency has
reviewed the comments and expects to
promulgate the final rule in the Fall
of 2001.

3472. LEAD; NOTIFICATION
REQUIREMENTS FOR LEAD-BASED
PAINT ABATEMENT ACTIVITIES AND
TRAINING
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 15 USC 2682 TSCA
402;  15  USC 2687 TSCA 407; PL 102-
550
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 745
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: EPA is issuing this rule
under the authority of Section 407 of
the Toxic Substances Control Act
(TSCA)  to establish notification
procedures for lead abatement
professionals (certified under 40 CFR
745.226) conducting lead-based paint
activities, and training programs
(accredited under 40 CFR 225)
providing lead-based  paint activities
courses. Specifically,  this rule seeks to
establish procedures to notify the
Agency prior to commencement of
lead-based paint abatement activities as
required by 40 CFR 745.227(e)(4). In
addition, this rule seeks to establish
provisions which would require
training programs accredited  under 40
CFR 745.225 to notify the Agency
under the following conditions: 1) prior
to providing lead-based paint activities,
training , and 2) following completion
of lead-based paint activities  courses.
These notification requirements are
necessary to provide EPA compliance
monitoring and enforcement personnel
with information necessary to track
                     compliance activity and to prioritize
                     inspections. This rule supports 40 CFR
                     part 745, subpart L to ensure that lead
                     abatement professionals who inspect,
                     assess and remove lead-based paint,
                     dust or soil are well qualified, trained,
                     and certified to conduct these activities.

                     Abstract: The TSCA section 8(e) Notice
                     of Clarification and Solicitation of
                     Public Comment would amend certain
                     aspects of the 1978 TSCA section 8(e)
                     Statement of Interpretation and
                     Enforcement Policy (1978 Policy
                     Statement). The 1978 Policy Statement
                     describes the types of information that
                     EPA considers reportable under section
                     8(e), the substantial risk reporting
                     provision of TSCA,  and describes the
                     procedures for reporting such
                     information to EPA. This clarification
                     effort derives from a review of the
                     existing section 8(e) guidance done in
                     the context of questions raised by
companies considering participating in
the section 8(e) Compliance Audit
Program (CAP). As a result of this
review, EPA determined that parts of
the 1978 Policy Statement concerning
the reportability of information on
widespread and previously
unsuspected distribution in
environmental media and emergency
incidents of environmental
contamination needed some refinement.
The subject Federal Register action
solicited comment on refined reporting
guidance concerning widespread and
previously unsuspected distribution in
environmental media and provides
additional circumstances where
information is not reportable because it
is considered known to the
Administrator. Finally, the notice
solicited comments on changes to the
section 8(e) reporting deadline and
reaffirmed the standards for claims of
confidentiality for information
contained in a notice of substantial risk
under section 8(e).

Abstract: In 1996, the Food Quality
Protection Act amended the Federal
Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to
require EPA to charge tolerance fees
that, in the aggregate, will cover all
costs associated with processing
tolerance actions, including filing a
tolerance petition, and establishing,
modifying, leaving in effect, or revoking
a tolerance or tolerance exemption.
Since 1983 (the last time a cost analysis
was conducted), factors such as
expanded data requirements, changes
in risk assessment methods,
improvements in data base management
and tracking systems, and the
increasing complexity of scientific
review of petitions have resulted in
costs substantially exceeding the fees
currently charged. This rule will adjust
the fee structure and fee amounts for
tolerance actions.

Abstract: EPA will reassess pesticide
tolerances and exemptions for raw and
processed foods established prior to
August 3, 1996, to determine whether
they meet the reasonable certainty of
no harm standard of the Federal Food,
Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA).
FFDCA sec. 408(q), as amended by the
Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA).
FQPA requires that EPA conduct this
reassessment on a phased 10-year
schedule. Based on its reassessment,
EPA will take a series of regulatory
actions to modify or revoke tolerances.
Since such actions are issued on a
chemical-by-chemical basis, this
regulatory plan entry  does not list the
individual actions that are likely to
occur under this program. For status

Abstract: EPA has held public
meetings to involve stakeholders in the
design and development of a voluntary
program to evaluate commercial
chemicals to which children may  have
a high  likelihood of exposure. The
purpose of the voluntary program  is to
obtain  toxicity and exposure data
needed to assess the risk of childhood
exposure to commercial chemicals. EPA
launched a pilot of this program on
December 26,2000. Manufacturers of 23
chemicals have been asked to
voluntarily sponsor their chemicals in
the pilot. If an adequate voluntary
children's chemical evaluation program
fails to emerge from the stakeholder
involvement process, EPA may proceed
with development of a test rule under
section 4 of the Toxic Substances
Control Act (TSCA).

3477. TEST RULE; CERTAIN METALS
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority:  15 USC 2603 TSCA
4; 15 USC 2611 TSCA  12; 15 USC 2625
TSCA 26; 42 USC 9604(i) CERCLA
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 790 to end
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: EPA is proposing a test rule
under section 4(a) of the Toxic
Substances Control Act (TSCA)
requiring manufacturers and processors
of certain metals to fill data needs
identified by the Agency for Toxic
Substances and Disease Registry
(ATSDR), the National Toxicology
Program (NTP), and EPA pursuant to
the Comprehensive Environmental
Response, Compensation, and Liability
Act (CERCLA)  section 104(1).  Under
CERCLA, ATSDR is to establish a list
of priority hazardous substances found
at superfund sites, develop
toxicological profiles for the hazardous
substances, identify priority data needs,
and establish a research program
obtaining the necessary data. This
action is a component of ATSDR's
research program. Data from this action
would provide specific information
about the substances for the public and
scientific community. The information
would be used in conducting
comprehensive public health
assessments of populations living near
hazardous waste sites. Scientific data
improves the quality of risk
assessments used by EPA, other Federal
agencies, and State and local
governments. The risk assessments
affect standards, guidelines,
listing/delisting, and other decisions
affecting public health and the
environment. The metals are also
hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) under
the Clean Air Act (CAA) section 112.
Data from this action would also be
used to implement several provisions
of section 112 of the CAA, including
determining risks remaining after the
application of technology based on
standards under section 112(d) of the
CAA, estimating the risks associated
with accidental releases, and
determining whether or not substances
should be removed from the CAA
section (b)(l) list of HAPs (delisting).

Abstract: This action initiates a
regulatory investigation under the
Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA)
section 6 to determine if uses of lead
(Pb) present an unreasonable risk to
human health and the environment.
The investigation will involve
examination of the potential sources of
human or other exposure to lead
throughout the life cycle. Based on
information gathered EPA may propose
TSCA section 6 (a) rules to control
existing or new uses of Pb which pose
an unreasonable risk to human health
or the environment,  and to explore the
desirability and feasibility of
discouraging overall consumption of Pb
in general.

a final rule involving the disposal
related provisions. Other provisions,
e.g., certain use authorizations and
import provisions, were to be addressed
in separate actions. This rulemaking
addresses a use authorization for
certain non-liquid PCB applications,
which although currently in use have
never been authorized under the PCB

Abstract: Currently, waste derived from
lead-based paint (LBP) abatements is
managed under the Resource
Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)
hazardous waste regulations. Other
Federal agencies (Department of
Housing and Urban Development,
Department of Health and Human
Services) and several States and
advocacy groups have expressed
concern that the costs associated with
the disposal of large volume
architectural components (e.g., doors
and windows) may interfere with
abatement activities. EPA's Office of
Prevention, Pesticides and  Toxic
Substances and the Office of Solid
Waste have initiated a joint rulemaking
to address the disposal of these
architectural components. This
rulemaking would develop disposal
standards for these components under
the Toxic Substances Control Act
(TSCA) title IV, (the definition of
abatement under TSCA title IV, section
401(1)(B), includes disposal). The
TSCA regulations would establish
appropriate disposal standards for LBP
architectural components and identify
recycling and incineration  activities
that would be controlled or prohibited.
To minimize duplication of waste
management requirements, EPA is

Abstract: The Chemical RTK Initiative
was established in 1998 in response to
the finding that most commercial
chemicals have very little, if any,
publicly available toxicity information
on which to make sound judgments
about potential risks. There are three
key components to this initiative, each
of which is being implemented by EPA.
These are: collecting and making public
screening level toxicity data for 2,800
widely used commercial chemicals;
additional health effects testing for
chemicals to which children are
substantially exposed; and the listing
and lowering of thresholds for
persistent, bioaccumulative, toxic
chemicals reported to the Toxic Release
Inventory  (TRI). This Initiative will
involve several separate activities, with
any regulatory related actions included
as separate entries in the Regulatory
Agenda.

BIPHENYLS (PCBS); RETURN OF PCB
WASTE FROM U.S. TERRITORIES

OF THE UNITED STATES
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 15 USC 2605 et seq
CFR Citation: 40 CFR sec 761.99(c)
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This proposed interpretive
rule would allow the movement of PCB
waste for disposal among any States of
the United States, as defined in TSCA
sections 3(13) and 3(14), regardless  of
whether the waste enters or leaves the
customs territory of the  United States,
provided that the PCBs in the waste
were present in the United States on
January 1, 1979, when the ban on
manufacturing took effect, and has
remained within the United States
since that date. This would allow PCB
waste that was present in the territories
and possessions at the time TSCA's ban
on manufacturing took effect, and that
remained within the territories and
possessions since that date, to be stored
and disposed of in any facility in the
United States that meets the
requirements of 40 CFR  part 761,
subpart D. It would also allow PCBs
that were present in the  territories and
possessions at the time TSCA's bans
took effect, but were not designated as
waste until after that date, to be stored
and disposed of in any subpart D
facility in the United States, as long
as the PCBs and PCB waste had
remained in the United States. Finally,
it would allow PCBs or PCB wastes  that
were transferred from an area in the
United States that is outside the
territories and possessions, but that  was
moved to a territory or possession after
January 1, 1979, and that has never  left
the  United States, to be stored and

Abstract: The Toxics Release Inventory
(TRI) requires reporting from facilities
which manufacture or process at least
25,000 pounds of a listed chemical, or
otherwise use 10,000 pounds of a listed
chemical. In determining amounts of
listed chemicals that are manufactured,
processed or otherwise used, facilities
may be entitled to consider specific
exemptions from reporting. EPA is
presently reviewing a group of these
exemptions. The categories of
exemptions presently being
reconsidered by EPA are the structural
component exemption, the routine
janitorial and facility grounds
maintenance exemption, the personal
use exemption, and the motor vehicle
maintenance exemption. Also known as
the otherwise use  exemptions because
they are limited to otherwise use
activities, these exemptions are
expressly provided for at 40 CFR
372.38(c). EPA is also considering
changes to the coal mining extraction
activities exemption provided for at 40
CFR 372.38(g).

3489. TRI: APA PETITION-EPCRA 313
DEFINITION OF "OVERBURDEN" AS
IT RELATES TO THE MINING
INDUSTRY.
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 11001 et seq
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 372
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The regulatory definition for
EPCRA section 313 defines
"overburden" to mean any
unconsolidated material that overlies a
deposit of useful material or ores. It
does not include any portion of ore or
waste rock. "Overburden" generally
lacks any recoverable materials and
contains only trace amounts of EPCRA
section 313 chemicals. Under section
313, all activities related to
"overburden" are exempt from
threshold determinations and release
and other waste management
calculations because "overburden"
contains TRI chemicals in negligible
amounts and reporting is unlikely to
provide the public with valuable
information. On December 22, 1998, the
National Mining Association (NMA)
petitioned EPA, pursuant to the
Administrative Procedures Act (APA)
to change the current EPCRA 313
definition  of "overburden" to include
both consolidated material and
unconsolidated material. By making
such a change, consolidated material
that overlies an ore deposit would be
eligible for the "overburden"
exemption (i.e., "overburden" generally
lacks any reco 'arable minerals and
contains only trace amounts of EPCRA
section 313 cr eriicals). NMA asserts

that EPA's definition of "overburden"
is inconsistent with that of industry.
NMA considers "overburden" to be all
material, both consolidated and
unconsolidated, that overlies an ore
deposit of useful material and must be
removed to allow access to ore deposit.

Community Right-to-Know Act. One
petitioner requested the removal of
isophorone diisocyanate (IPDI). EPA
rejected the petitioner's request.
However, in the review of the petition,
EPA noticed that there was an error in
the setting of the threshold planning
quantity (TPQ) for IPDI, and proposed
to correct the error in the October 12,
1994 notice of proposed rulemaking.
The other modifications to the EHS list
were made final on May 7, 1996;
however, the TPQ for IPDI was not
included in that final rule. This rule
will finalize  the TPQ for IPDI.

Abstract: On November 30, 1994, EPA
added 286 chemicals and chemical
categories to the EPCRA section 313
list, including 39 chemicals as part of
two delineated categories. Each
chemical and chemical category was
found to meet the statutory criteria
described in EPCRA section
313(d)(2)(A)-(C). At this time, EPA
deferred final action on 40 chemicals
and one chemical category until a later
date. These were deferred because the
comments received on them raised
difficult technical or policy issues
                    which required additional time to
                    address. EPA chose not to delay final
                    action on the 286 chemicals and
                    chemical categories because of the
                    additional time needed to address the
                    issues surrounding the smaller group of
                    40 chemicals and one chemical
                    category; rather, EPA believed it to be
                    in the spirit of community right-to-
                    know to proceed with the final
                    rulemaking of the additional chemicals
                    and chemical categories.

3494. TRI; REVIEW OF CHEMICALS
ON THE ORIGINAL TRI LIST
Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 1101 et seq
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 372
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: When TRI was established by
Congress in 1986, the statutory
language placed 309 chemicals and 20
categories of chemicals on the TRI list;
that is referred to as the original TRI
list. The chemicals on the original list
were taken from two existing lists of
toxic substances: the Maryland
Chemical Inventory Report List of
Toxic or Hazardous Substances, and the
New Jersey Environmental Hazardous
Substances list. This action constitutes
the first systematic review of toxicology
and environmental data for all the
chemicals on the original TRI list to
determine whether data for those
chemicals conform with the statutory
criteria for listing of chemicals on TRI.
Chemicals for which data do not meet
the statutory criteria will be delisted.

CFR Citation: 40 CFR 372

Abstract: Section 6607(b) of the
Pollution Prevention Act of 1990 (PPA)
(Pub. L. 101-508) requires the addition
of several data elements to the Toxic
Chemical Release Inventory (TRI)
reporting requirements as promulgated
under section 313 of the Emergency
Planning and Community Right-to-
Know Act of 1986 (EPCRA) (Pub. L.
99-499). Section 313 of EPCRA requires
owners or operators of certain facilities
that manufacture, process, or otherwise
use listed toxic chemicals to annually
report their releases of these chemicals
to each environmental medium. The
PPA  mandates that section 313 covered
facilities also report on source
reduction and recycling activities
relating to the toxic chemicals
beginning with the 1991 reporting year.
Since 1991 covered facilities have been
providing this information to EPA in
section 8, Source Reduction and
Recycling Activities, of EPA Form R.
On September 25,1991 (56 FR 48475),
EPA  proposed regulations which would
provide definitions and instructions for
reporting the PPA data elements on the
EPA  Form R. In this action, EPA will
amend certain aspects of the September
25, 1991, proposed rule.

Abstract: EPA has been actively
working to break down the barriers that
the environmental monitoring
community faces when trying to use
new monitoring techniques. As a first
step, EPA has accelerated its review
process for new methods by eliminating
several unnecessary internal review
steps, and by streamlining the internal
approval process for each new method.
However, there are currently 32
citations in title 40 of the Code of
Federal Regulations (CFR) where the
use of SW-846 methods is required. As
a second step for speeding up the
                    approval process, EPA plans to remove
                    the requirements to use SW-846
                    methods for other than method defined
                    parameters (i.e., where the method
                    defines the regulations, such as the
                    Toxicity Characteristic Leaching
                    Procedure) from 40 CFR. This will
                    likely lead to an even more streamlined
                    approval process since SW-846 will
                    then be able to be handled strictly as
                    guidance and not need the regulatory
                    process for approval. This additional
                    streamlining will permit new, more
                    cost-effective methods to attain public
                    and regulatory authority acceptance in
                    much less time, allowing required
                    monitoring to be done more cheaply,
                    faster and, in some cases, more
                    accurately.

                                    a new type of general permit, called
                                    a standardized permit, for facilities that
                                    generate waste and routinely manage
                                    the waste on-site in tanks, containers,
                                    and containment buildings. Under the
                                    standardized permit, facility owners
                                    and operators would certify compliance

conditions set on a national basis. The
permitting agency would review the
certifications submitted by the facility
owners and operators. The permitting
agency would also be able to impose
additional site-specific terms and
conditions for corrective action or other
purposes, as called for by RCRA.
Ensuring compliance with the
standardized permit's terms and
conditions would occur during
inspection of the facility after the
permit has been issued. The
standardized permit should streamline
the permit process by allowing facilities
to obtain and modify permits more
easily while maintaining the
protectiveness currently existing in the
individual RCRA permit process. This
proposal also raises issues for public
comment on how all facilities receiving
RCRA permits can satisfy RCRA
corrective action requirements under
appropriate alternative state cleanup
programs and on financial assurance
issues.

Abstract: This action addresses the
potential human health and
environmental risks posed by wastes
from the manufacture of dyes and
pigments, and determines whether
these wastes should be listed as
hazardous wastes under RCRA to
control any potentially unacceptable
risks. If listed under RCRA, these
wastes would also be added to the
CERCLA list of hazardous substances.
This action will be implemented by
EPA and States authorized under
RCRA. Impacts on local governments
are not expected, and there may be
some small business impacts. EPA
proposed listing decisions for most
wastes in 1994 (Dyes-I), and deferred
decisions on several others. Two
deferred waste streams (filter aids and
triarylmethane sludges) are subject to
separate deadlines for proposed and
final action (Dyes II rulemaking). The
Dyes II NPRM was published on July
23, 1999. The rules proposed in 1994
and 1999 were incomplete because they
did not contain information  claimed to
be confidential by industry. Therefore,
a NODA for each proposal will be
necessary, when EPA is able to release
an adequate record. The deadlines are
based on recent settlement discussions
with plaintiffs in EOF v. Browner, Civil
Action No.  89-0598 D.D.C.

As part of the listing of dyes and
pigments effort, EPA will also develop
land disposal restrictions for these dyes
and pigments.

Abstract: RCRA section 6002 and E.O.
13101 require EPA to prepare
guidelines in the Federal Register
which designate items that are or can
be made with recovered materials and
to issue recommendations for
government procurement of these
items. Once designated, procuring
agencies are required to purchase these
items with the highest percentage of
recovered materials practicable.
Government procurement of EPA-
designated items containing recovered
materials fosters markets for recovered
materials and, thereby, closes the
recycling loop. To date, EPA has
designated 54 items under three
Comprehensive Procurement
Guidelines (CPGl, CPG2 and CPG3).
EPA has also issued a Recovered
Materials Advisory Notice (RMAN)
with each CPG which provides
recommendations on buying the
designated items. The E.O. requires
EPA to update the CPG every two
years. The new actions would (1)
propose to designate new items in
CPG4 and (2) issue final item
designations in CPG4.

Abstract: Under the Clean Air Act
(CAA), EPA is required to establish
National Emission Standards for
Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs)
for most hazardous waste combustors
(HWCs) (i.e., incinerators, cement kilns,
boilers, and some types of smelting
furnaces). In addition, under the
Resource Conservation and Recovery
Act (RCRA), EPA is required to
establish standards for all HWCs as
necessary to ensure protection of
human health and the environment.
EPA  is concerned that its current RCRA
standards for HWCs may not be
adequately protective given that the
standards do not take into account
indirect pathways of exposure and that
there have been advances both in risk
assessment and control technologies
since promulgation of the current
standards. The Agency is in the process
of developing a proposal to address
boilers and possibly other industrial
furnaces, which combust hazardous
wastes.

Abstract: The Uniform Hazardous
Waste Manifest (Form 8700-22) is a
multi-copy form used to identify the
quantity, composition, origin, routing,
and destination of hazardous waste
during  its transportation. The manifest
system's reliance on paper results in
significant paperwork and cost burden
to waste handlers and States who
choose to collect manifest information.
The Agency intends to pursue an
optional approach to redesign the
manifest system so that it utilizes
automated technologies to increase
access to manifest related information,
and to  facilitate the manifest process,
including the form's preparation,
transmission, and recordkeeping,
thereby lessening the total burden on
waste handlers and States that choose
to collect manifests.  In addition, the

Abstract: EPA plans to reduce the
burden imposed by the RCRA reporting
and recordkeeping requirements to help
meet the Federal government-wide goal
established by the Paperwork
Reduction Act (PRA). The information
collection burden for the regulations
EPA implements under RCRA in 1995
(the PRA baseline) was 12,600,000
hours. To meet EPA's PRA 2001 goal
(a 40% reduction), EPA needs to
eliminate five million hours to reach
a figure of 7.5 million hours.
In June 1999, EPA published a Notice
of Data Availability (NODA) in the
Federal Register (64 FR 32859) to seek
comment on a  number of burden
reduction ideas. After reviewing the
comments received on the NODA, EPA
is drafting a proposed rulemaking to
implement many of these ideas. The
proposals are designed to eliminate
duplicative and non-essential
paperwork.
The main ideas being considered for
the proposed rulemaking are: (1)
eliminating or modifying one-third of
the 334 RCRA-required notices and
reports that are sent by the regulated
community to states and EPA; (2)
eliminating the RCRA emergency
response training requirements that
overlap with the Occupational Safety
and Health Administration
requirements; (3) eliminating the need
for facilities to record personnel
descriptions; (4) decreasing the
owner/operator self-inspection
frequency of hazardous waste tanks to
weekly; (5) providing states and EPA
with the  opportunity to lengthen
owner/operator self-inspection
frequencies on  a case-by-case basis for
containers, containment buildings, and
tanks; (6) eliminating the Land Disposal
Restrictions generator waste
determinations, recycler notifications
and certifications, hazardous debris
notifications and  characteristic waste
determinations, and streamlining the
characteristic waste notification
procedures; and (7) modifying the
groundwater monitoring requirements
for hazardous waste facilities.

RULES ASSOCIATED WITH SOLVENT-
CONTAMINATED SHOP TOWELS AND
WIPES

Priority: Other Significant

Legal Authority: 42 USC 6921

CFR Citation: 40 CFR 261

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: This action would modify
RCRA rules that impact the
management of solvent-contaminated
shop towels and wipes. Solvent-
contaminated shop towels and wipes
are used throughout industry for
equipment cleaning and other related
facility operations. The spent shop
towels and wipes can be hazardous
wastes when the solvent used is either
a characteristic or listed solvent. An
examination of industry use and
management practices reveals that
many facilities may use only small
amounts of solvent on their disposable
wipes, and use small numbers of wipes
daily — suggesting that these materials
may sometimes pose little or no risk
to human health and the environment
if disposed in municipal landfills.
Similarly, situations exist where both
disposable wipes and reusable shop
towels are not being managed according
to prescribed Federal and States' rules
and policies. Problems with this issue
have persisted since the late 1980s.

OF CATHODE RAY TUBES (CRTS):
CHANGES TO HAZARDOUS WASTE

USC 6921; 42 USC 6922; 42 USC 6923;
42 USC 6924; 42 USC 6925
CFR Citation: Not Yet Determined
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract:  This action will ultimately
revise the  existing Federal hazardous
waste regulations to remove
unnecessary regulatory barriers to glass-
to-glass recycling of Cathode Ray Tubes
(CRTs). A  CRT is the main component
of a television or computer monitor. A
CRT is made largely of specialized
glasses, some of which contain lead to
protect the user from X-rays inside  the
CRT. Due  to the lead, when they are
disposed of or reclaimed, some CRTs
are hazardous wastes under the Federal
Resource Conservation and Recovery
Act (RCRA) regulations. Glass-to-glass
recycling involves the return of used
CRT glass  to manufacturing of new
CRTs. This action is planned in
response to a June 9, 1998
recommendation on CRT recycling from
the Common Sense Initiative (CSI)
Council to the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA). CSI is a
consensus-based process for developing
cleaner, cheaper, smarter environmental
improvements that includes
representatives of: industry;
environmental groups; community
groups; environmental justice groups;
labor; and, Federal, State, local, and
tribal governments. The
recommendation involves minimizing
RCRA requirements for glass-to-glass
recycling while retaining appropriate
controls to ensure protection of human
health and the environment.  The goal
of the recommendation is to facilitate
an increase in glass-to-glass recycling,
thereby minimizing disposal of lead,
increasing resource recovery, and
enhancing protection of human health
and the environment.

                    Abstract: The Land Disposal
                    Restrictions (LDR) program was
                    established to minimize threats posed
                    by the land disposal of untreated
                    hazardous wastes. The program has
                    been in place for a number of years
          and now regulates all but the most
          recently listed hazardous wastes. The
          Agency is now examining the LDR
          program to ensure the program is cost-
          effective and flexible while also
          protecting human health and the

          described our initial thinking on
          potential changes to the LDR program
          and asked for public comments and

                  Abstract: Under the Clean Air Act
                  (CAA), EPA is required to establish
                  National Emission Standards for
                  Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs)
                  for most hazardous waste combustors
(HWCs) (i.e., incinerators, cement kilns,
boilers, and some types of recovery
furnaces). In addition, under the
Resource Conservation and Recovery
Act (RCRA), EPA is required to
establish standards for all HWCs as
necessary to ensure protection of
human health and the environment.
Consequently, the Agency established
in the HWC Maximum Achievable
Control Technology (MACT) rule new
emissions standards for cement kilns,
lightweight aggregate kilns, and
incinerators under CAA authority on
September 30, 1999 (64 FR 52828).
Following promulgation, issues were
raised by the regulated community
through informal comments and
through litigation. In response, this
proposed rule will propose changes to
and clarify certain provisions of the
final Phase I rule.

MANAGEMENT OF COAL
COMBUSTION WASTES GENERATED
BY COMMERCIAL ELECTRIC POWER
PRODUCERS
Priority: Economically Significant.
Major under 5 USC 801.
Unfunded Mandates: This action may
affect the private  sector under PL 104-

Legal Authority:  42 USC 6907(a)(3); 42
USC 6944(a)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 257
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This action is for the
development of proposed RCRA
subtitle D regulations for the
management of coal combustion wastes
in landfills and surface impoundments
that are generated by producers of
electric power, including electric
utilities and independent power
producers.
On April 25, 2000 EPA issued a
regulatory determination for fossil fuel
combustion wastes  (65 FR 32214, May
22, 2000). The purpose of the
determination was to  decide whether
certain wastes from the combustion of
fossil fuels (including coal, oil  and
natural gas) should  remain exempt from
subtitle C (management as hazardous
waste) of the Resource Conservation
and Recovery Act (RCRA) for the coal,
oil and natural gas combustion wastes
that were addressed. The Agency's
decision was to retain the exemption
from hazardous waste management for
all of the fossil fuel combustion wastes.
However, the Agency also determined
and announced that waste management
regulations under RCRA subtitle D
(management as non-hazardous wastes)
are appropriate for certain coal
combustion wastes  that are disposed in
landfills and surface impoundments.
We also announced that we would
consult with the Department of the
Interior on appropriate measures under
the Surface Mining  Control and
Reclamation Act  (SMCRA) or RCRA or
some combination of both to address
the disposal of coal combustion wastes
when used for minefill in surface and
underground mines.
The utility industry has made
significant improvements in its waste
management practices over recent
years, and most state  regulatory
programs are similarly improving.
Nevertheless, public comments and
                    other analyses have convinced the
                    Agency that coal combustion wastes
                    could pose risks to human health and
                    the environment if they are not
                    properly managed. There is sufficient
                    evidence that adequate controls may
                    not be in place. For example, while
                    most states can now require newer
                    waste management units to include
                    liners and groundwater monitoring, 62
                    percent of existing utility surface
                    impoundments do not have
                    groundwater monitoring. In the
                    Agency's view, this justifies the
                    development  of national regulations.
                    We note, however, that some waste
                    management units may not warrant
                    liners and/or  groundwater monitoring,
                    depending on site-specific
                    characteristics. The Agency is initiating
                    this action to  develop and issue
                    appropriate waste management
                    regulations under  Subtitle D of RCRA.

Abstract: EPA is looking into
proposing to add up to four solvents
(benzene, 2-ethoxyethanol, 1,1,2-
trichloroethane, and 2-nitropropane) to
the hazardous waste exemptions for
mixtures of spent solvents in
wastewater treatment plants
("headworks rule") at 40 CFR
261.3(a)(2)(iv)(A)-(B). Spent solvents are
solvents that have been used and are
no longer fit for use without being
regenerated, reclaimed, or otherwise
processed. In addition, EPA is
considering proposing: (1) changes to
implementation of rule from using mass
balance only, to choice of using direct
monitoring; (2) adding certain leachates
to allowed categories of wastestreams;
and (3) revising other provisions of
rule, such as de minimis quantities and
the definition of point of application
of exemption.

Abstract: EPA is revising the definition
of municipal solid waste landfill
(MSWLF) unit and adding the
definition of residential lead-based
paint waste, both in 40 CFR part 257
and within the Municipal Solid Waste
Landfill Criteria in 40 CFR part 258.
We are making these changes in order
to allow construction and demolition
(C&D) landfills and other nonmunicipal
nonhazardous waste disposal units to
receive residential lead-based paint
(LBP) waste without having to comply
with the Municipal Solid Waste
Landfill Criteria in 40 CFR Part 258.
EPA believes that disposal of
residential LBP waste in C&D landfills
and other nonhazardous nonmunicipal
waste disposal units is protective of
public health and the environment
while being less costly than disposal
in MSWLFs.

COUNTY MILLERSVILLE LANDFILL,

Abstract: Anne Arundel County
proposes to demonstrate that a
bioreactor with an alternative liner
system is as effective, or superior to
a bioreactor with the standard
composite liner currently allowed by
regulations. The main goal of this
project is to deliver superior
environmental performance (SEP) by
capturing the additional airspace
gained by accelerated decomposition of
the waste. This benefits the County and
its citizens by prolonging the life of the
landfill and thereby postponing the
siting of new solid waste management
facilities, with their attendant social
impacts, environmental impacts, and
economic costs. Environmental benefits
of this project include: (1) Reduced
need for construction of new landfills
and corresponding reduction (or
elimination) of the land, air, and water
impacts associated with landfill
construction; (2) Decreased
concentration of most leachate
constituents as cycling of leachate
removes or reduces contaminants; (3)
Reduction in the amount of leachate
requiring pretreatment; (4) Reduction in
the amount of leachate that the facility
discharges to the local wastewater
treatment plant, and subsequent
discharge of effluent to the Patuxent
River; and (5) Reduction in post-closure
care, maintenance and risk (bioreactor
landfills minimize long-term
environmental risk and liability due to
the controlled settlement of the solid
waste during landfill operation, low
potential for leachate migration into the
subsurface environment, and the
recovery of landfill gas during
operation].

determines whether these wastes
should be listed as hazardous  under
RCRA to control any potentially
unacceptable risks. Any new wastes
listed as hazardous will also be added
to the CERCLA list of hazardous
substances. This action will be
implemented by EPA and States
authorized under RCRA. Impacts on
local governments are not expected.
Specific wastes to be addressed are
water/caustic  cleaning wastes, solvent
cleaning wastes, emission control
dusts/sludges, waste water treatment
sludges, and off-spec product.

KILN DUST (CKD)
Priority: Other Significant

Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: Cement kiln dust (CKD) is a
high volume material byproduct of the
cement manufacturing process.  While it
contains potentially hazardous
constituents such as lead, cadmium and
chromium, it has been exempted since
November 1980 from hazardous waste
regulation under RCRA subtitle C by
the Bevill Amendment. This
amendment modified section 3001 of
RCRA to exempt certain special wastes
until further studies could be
completed and any applicable
regulations were promulgated. In
December 1993, EPA submitted a
Report to Congress with its findings on
the nature and management practices
associated with CKD. This was
followed in January 1995  by an EPA
regulatory determination published in
the Federal  Register (60 FR 7366,
2/7/95), which concluded that
additional control of CKD is warranted.
In the regulatory determination EPA
committed to develop regulations that
would be tailored to protect human
health and the environment while
limiting burden on the regulated
community. These tailored regulations
would be developed under RCRA
subtitle C and, if necessary, the Clean
Air Act. As part of its regulatory
development effort, EPA has initiated
further studies and has held informal
discussions with stakeholders. A
proposed rule was issued (64 FR 45632,
8/20/99) which included  a
comprehensive set of standards for the
management of CKD. EPA is currently
developing the final preamble and rule,
which will address comments received
on the proposal.

hazardous waste applicable to: low-
level mixed waste (LLMW) for storage;
and LLMW or Naturally Occurring

Radioactive Material (NARM) for
transportation and disposal. Upon
finalization, the rule is expected to
reduce  dual regulation for generators in
the management and disposal of their
wastes. This flexibility should enable
generators of LLMW who are licensed
by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission
(NRC) to claim an  exemption for storing

CFR Citation: 40 CFR 261; 40 CFR 279
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract:  The direct final rule,
published May 6, 1998, eliminates
errors and clarifies ambiguities in the
used oil management standards.
Specifically, the rule clarifies (1) when
used oil contaminated with
polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) is
regulated under the used oil
management standards and when it is
not, (2) that the requirements
applicable to releases of used oil apply
in States that are not authorized for the
RCRA base program, (3) that mixtures
of conditionally exempt small quantity
generator  (CESQG)  wastes and used oil
are subject to the used oil management
standards  irrespective of how that
mixture is to be recycled,  and (4) that
the initial  marketer of used oil that
meets the  used oil fuel specification
need only keep  a record of a shipment
of used oil to the facility to which the
initial marketer delivers the used oil.
This rule also amends three incorrect
references to the pre-1992 used oil
specifications in the provisions which
address hazardous waste fuel produced
from, or oil reclaimed from, oil bearing
hazardous wastes from petroleum
refining operations.
EPA received relevant adverse
comments on three of the  amendments
included in the May 6, 1998 direct  final
rule: the amendments to 40 CFR
261.5(j) (mixtures of conditionally
exempt small quantity generator waste
and used oil), 40 CFR 279.10(i)
(applicability of the used oil
management standards to used oil
contaminated with  polychlorinated
biphenyls  (PCBs)), and 40 CFR
279.74(b) (recordkeeping requirements
for marketers of used  oil that meets the
used oil fuel specification). On July 14,
1998, the Agency removed these three
amendments and reinstated the
regulatory  text that existed prior to  the
May 6, 1998 direct final rule. EPA will
promulgate a final rule addressing the
                                                         comments received and finalizing the
                                                         three amendments, as appropriate.

mercuric acetate production wastes,
boric acid production wastes, inorganic
hydrogen cyanide production wastes,
and titanium dioxide production wastes
(except for chloride process waste
solids). EPA published a proposal on
September 14, 2000. The rule was
proposed under the authority of section
3001(e)(2) of RCRA which directs EPA
to make hazardous waste listing
determinations for inorganic chemical
manufacturing wastes. The FR notice
proposes to list  as hazardous three
specific wastes under 40 CFR Part  261:
1) baghouse filters from the production
of antimony oxide; 2) slag from the
production of antimony oxide that is
disposed of or speculatively
accumulated; and 3) nonwastewaters
from the production of titanium
dioxide by the chloride-ilmenite
process. The remaining wastes
evaluated in the rule were proposed to
not be listed as hazardous wastes. EPA
will evaluate public comments on the
proposal and develop the final rule.
This action will include final Land
Disposal Restrictions for the final listed
wastes. Where possible, newly listed
wastes will be given CERCLA
Hazardous Substance Designation and
Reportable Quantities assigned.

Abstract: The revised financial
responsibility test is intended to
improve the current test in predicting
which firms will enter bankruptcy and
not be able to cover their financial
obligations for liability and closure
costs of hazardous waste treatment,
storage and disposal facilities. A
bankrupt firm may be unable to afford
the proper closure of a facility which
would require the government to incur
response costs  at the facility. The rule
would also qualify owners and
operators of RCRA Treatment, Storage,
and Disposal Facilities which must
currently use more expensive ways,
such as surety bonds  or letters of credit,
of demonstrating financial assurance, to
use the  less expensive corporate
financial responsibility test for more of
their obligations. The combined savings
from screening out riskier firms and
making the test more available to viable
firms would be approximately $19
million annually in public and private
costs. These regulatory amendments
would have no effect on local or tribal
governments.

Abstract: This action would amend
regulations governing solid wastes that
are designated as hazardous, because
they have been mixed with or derived-
from listed hazardous wastes. The
Agency proposed to retain the mixture
and derived-from rules promulgated
under the Resource Conservation and
Recovery Act (RCRA). These rules are
currently in effect on an emergency
basis. The  Agency also proposed two
revisions to the mixture and derived-
from rules. The first was an exemption
for wastes  and their residuals listed
solely for the ignitability, corrosively,
and/or reactivity characteristics. The
second, which EPA proposed in a
separate notice, was a conditional
exemption from the mixture  and
derived from rules for mixed wastes
(that is, wastes that are both  hazardous
and radioactive).
Because this action is deregulatory, it
is not expected to have adverse impacts
on small business. This action will be
implemented by EPA and authorized
States.

approved Minnesota generators and
transporters of wastes from the use of
USFRS's waste water treatment ion
exchange resins. The principal
objective of this USFRS  XL Project is
to pilot a flexible, performance-based
system for managing waste waters from
electroplaters, metal finishers and
similar industries who by virtue of
their using USFRS water treatment ion
exchange resins generate electroplating
sludges which are regulated hazardous
wastes. To achieve this,  today's
proposed rule would provide regulatory
flexibility to allow approved generators
and transporters of USFRS's water
treatment ion exchange resin wastes to
replace existing requirements for
hazardous waste generators and
transporters with a comprehensive
program designed and implemented by
USFRS to properly store and transport
the USFRS water treatment ion

3525. •  PROJECT XL SITE-SPECIFIC
RULEMAKING FOR YOLO COUNTY
LANDFILL, DAVIS, YOLO COUNTY,
CALIFORNIA
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 6907; 42 USC
6912; 42 USC 6945; 42 USC 6949)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 258
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: Yolo County proposed a
project under EPA's Project XL to use
certain bioreactor techniques at its
municipal solid waste landfill
(MSWLF), specifically the recirculation
of leachate and the addition of bulk or
non-containerized liquid wastes into
the landfill to accelerate the
biodegradation of landfill waste and
decrease the time it takes for the waste
to stabilize in the landfill. The
principal objective of this bioreactor XL
project is to evaluate waste
decomposition rates when leachate  is
supplemented with other liquid
additions. In order to carry out this
project,  Yolo County would need relief
from certain requirements in EPA
regulations which set forth operating
criteria for MSWLFs and preclude the
addition of bulk or non-containerized
liquid wastes. This proposal to allow
addition of liquid wastes will apply
only to Phase One in Module D. The
Yolo County bioreactor project is one
of several bioreactor XL projects
currently being considered by EPA.
Proponents of bioreactor technology
note that operation of MSWLFs as
bioreactors provide a number of
environmental benefits, including: (I)
increasing the rate of waste
decomposition, which in turn would
extend the operating life of the landfill
and lessen the need for additional
landfill space or other disposal options;
(2) decreasing, or even eliminating, the
quantity, and increasing the quality, of
leachate requiring treatment and offsite
disposal, leading to decreased risks and
costs associated with leachate
management, treatment and disposal;
(3) reduced post-closure care costs and
risks, due to the accelerated, controlled
settlement of the  solid waste during
landfill operation; (4) lower long term
potential for leachate migration into the
subsurface environment; and (5)
opportunity for recovery of methane gas
for energy production.

Abstract: By publishing this  document
in the Federal Register, The
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
solicits comment on the proposed rule
which has been drafted to implement
the Autoliv XL project that is expected
to produce superior environmental
performance. -EPA is proposing to
implement this  project under the
Project XL program in order to provide
site-specific regulatory flexibility under
the Resource Conservation and
Recovery Act (RCRA), for the Autoliv
ASP Inc.(Autoliv) facility in
Promontory, Utah. The principal
objective of this XL Project is to  explore
the benefits of a more streamlined and
flexible RCRA regulation of pyrotechnic
hazardous wastes from the automobile
airbag industry  that are treated in
industrial furnaces. The terms of the
project are defined in the Final Project
Agreement (FPA) which was made
available for public review and
comments through a Federal  Register
notice on August 14, 2000 (Volume 65,
Number 157 [FRL-6846-7]) and signed
on September 20, 2000 by Autoliv, Box
Elder County, the state  of Utah, and
EPA. The facility will continue to
comply with certain general RCRA
conditions  on facility operations, as
described in this site-specific rule for
the Autoliv Facility and any  applicable
state of Utah regulations. EPA
anticipates that this project will
provide information on how  to develop
alternative approaches to handling
pyrotechnic waste. This information
would be useful to EPA in learning
more about alternative treatment
approaches for airbag manufacturing
wastestreams. This proposed rule will
not in any way  impact the provisions
or applicability of any other existing or
future regulations.

Abstract: EPA is reviewing whether the
provision of the used oil management
standards which governs mixtures of
recycled used oil and characteristic
hazardous waste, 40 CFR 279.10(b)(2)
(the used oil mixture rule), is consistent
with the United States Court of Appeals
for the District of Columbia Circuit's
decision in Chemical Waste
Management, Inc. v. EPA. The decision,
which concerned a challenge to
portions of EPA's land disposal
restrictions, held that EPA could not
authorize certain wastes exhibiting the
hazardous characteristics of ignitability,
reactivity,  or corrosivity to be diluted
to eliminate the characteristic and then
be land-disposed unless the hazardous
constituents in the waste were
adequately treated to minimize threats
to human health and the environment.
The used oil  mixture rule provides that
a mixture of hazardous  waste and used
oil destined for recycling, if the mixture
is hazardous  solely because it exhibits
a hazardous waste characteristic, is
regulated under the used oil
management  standards. Under the used
oil mixture rule, such a decharacterized
mixture, therefore, is not subject to the
hazardous waste regulations, including
those relating to land disposal
restrictions. Further analysis is
necessary to determine whether
mixtures of used oil destined for
recycling and characteristic hazardous
wastes differ significantly from other
mixtures containing characteristic
wastes in terms of potential threat to
human health and the environment.

nationwide on the date of signature.
Specifically, one provision of the law
requires the collection, storage, and
transportation of the following types of
batteries be managed according to
standards established in the Universal
Waste Rule: used rechargeable batteries,
lead-acid batteries not covered by 40
CFR part 266 or the equivalent
requirements of an approved state
program, rechargeable alkaline
batteries, certain mercury-containing
batteries banned from domestic sale,
and used consumer products containing
rechargeable batteries that are not easily
removable.  The  law prohibits State
imposed requirements that are not
identical to those found in the Federal
Universal Waste Rule, but allows States
to adopt and enforce identical
standards and to implement and
enforce collection, storage, and
transport requirements identical to
those included in the universal waste
rule if the standards are approved by
the EPA Administrator.

3531. FINAL DETERMINATION OF THE
APPLICABILITY OF THE TOXICITY

STORAGE TANKS
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

sec 3001
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 261

Abstract: In the final hazardous waste
Toxicity Characteristic (TC) rule
published in June 1990, EPA decided
to temporarily defer application of the
TC rule to petroleum-contaminated
media and debris, such as  soils and
groundwater, that result from
underground storage tank (UST)
corrective actions. This rule is part of
the Agency's commitment  to make a
final determination regarding the UST
temporary deferral. The temporary
deferral was, in part, based on the
Agency's concern that without such a
deferral, UST cleanup procedures
would be adversely affected, resulting
in delays in remedial action and
increases in remediation costs.  Since
this action is deregulatory, there are no
adverse effects on small businesses, or
on State,  local, or tribal governments.

Abstract: Past and present waste
management practices at Resource
Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)
treatment, storage or disposal facilities
have resulted in releases of hazardous
constituents from some waste
management units. These releases may
cause contamination of soils,
groundwater, surface water, and air.
This regulation provides a framework
for investigating and remediating
releases at RCRA facilities as necessary
to protect human health and the
environment.
The Agency has issued the corrective
action regulations in several  phases. A
proposal for corrective action at RCRA
facilities was published in July 1990.
In February 1993, regulations
concerning Corrective Action
Management Units (CAMU) and
Temporary Units were issued. An
advance notice of proposed rulemaking
(ANPRM) was published on  May 1,
1996, which provided further guidance
on implementation of the corrective
action program and requested comment
on the future direction of the program,

To develop guidelines the Agency must
find a balance between consistency and
innovation. Consistent risk assessments
provide consistent bases to support
regulatory decision-making. On the
other hand, innovation is necessary so
the Agency will base its decisions on
current scientific thinking. In balancing
these and other science policies, the
Agency relies on input from the general
scientific community through
established scientific peer review
processes. The guidelines  incorporate
basic principles and science policies
based on evaluation of the currently
available information. The revisions
place increased emphasis on the role
of carcinogenic mechanisms in risk
assessment and clearer explication of
underlying assumptions in risk
assessment.

These guidelines will have minimal to
no impact on small businesses or State,
local, and tribal governments.

is managed under the Resource
Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)
hazardous waste regulations. Other
Federal agencies (Department of
Housing and Urban Development,
Department of Health and Human
Services) and several States  and
advocacy groups have expressed
concern that the costs associated with
the disposal of large volume of such
debris (e.g., doors, windows and
demolition debris) may interfere with
abatement activities. EPA's Office of
Prevention, Pesticides and Toxic
Substances (OPPTS) and the Office of
Solid Waste have proposed a joint
rulemaking to address the disposal of
this debris. (See also RIN 2070-AC72.)
The final rule being prepared by
OPPTS would develop disposal and
management standards for this debris
under the Toxic Substances  Control Act
(TSCA) title IV, (the  definition of
abatement under TSCA title IV, section
401(1)(B), includes disposal). The
TSCA regulations would establish
appropriate disposal and management
standards for LBP debris and identify
recycling and incineration activities
that would be controlled or prohibited.
To minimize duplication of waste
management requirements, EPA is
developing a companion RCRA rule to
suspend temporarily hazardous waste
management regulations applicable to
LBP debris, which will be subject to
the new TSCA standards.

Abstract: This rulemaking is  intended
to revise the current RCRA regulations
that apply to recycling of hazardous
wastes in the manufacture of  zinc
fertilizers. Specifically, it is intended to
establish a more consistent application
of these recycling requirements to zinc
fertilizer products, to establish a set of
standards for contaminants in RCRA-
regulated zinc  fertilizers that  are more
appropriate to  fertilizers and are
protective of human health and the
environment, and to specify more
appropriate, protective conditions for
                                      management of zinc-bearing hazardous
                                      secondary materials prior to recycling.
                                      These regulatory revisions are expected
                                      to directly affect companies that
                                      manufacture zinc fertilizers from
                                      hazardous secondary materials, and is
                                      likely to benefit such manufacturers
                                      that are small businesses by removing
                                      certain regulatory disincentives to

inhalation risks, posed by these units.
The wastewater treatment units of
concern are tanks in which hazardous
wastes are treated and subsequently
released to surface waters or sewage
treatment facilities regulated under the
Clean Water Act  (CWA). Although
wastewater discharges from these tanks
are regulated under the  CWA, the tanks
themselves are not and  are also
"temporarily exempt" from hazardous
waste regulations under the RCRA.
Wastewater treatment units have been
exempt from RCRA regulations for
many years, although the Agency has
stated its concerns about these units
and its intention  to reconsider, at some
point, the temporary exemption.
Recent studies undertaken by EPA have
identified air emissions from waste
management units as an area that is not
well addressed by RCRA hazardous
waste regulations. In particular, study
findings show wastewater treatment
units to be the waste management unit
of most concern for direct inhalation
risks. Not only can these units pose the
greatest inhalation risks when
compared to other waste management
units, but these units are specifically
exempted from all existing RCRA air
emission controls. Air emission
controls imposed by the Clean Air Act
(CAA) address air emissions from some
wastewater treatment units, but these
requirements depend on industry
sector, quantity of emissions, and
technologies available. This action
constitutes the Agency's evaluation of
the long-standing temporary wastewater
treatment unit exemption and an
attempt to reduce unacceptable
inhalation risks, where CAA and RCRA
regulations are absent, from the
treatment of hazardous wastes in
wastewater treatment units.

3538. STANDARDS FOR THE
MANAGEMENT OF COAL
COMBUSTION WASTES - NON-
POWER PRODUCERS AND
MINEFILLING
Priority: Economically Significant.

Legal Authority:  42 USC 6907(a)(3); 42

Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: EPA is developing proposed
regulations for the management of coal
combustion wastes that are generated
by non-electric utility coal burners  and
managed in landfills and surface
impoundments, and for the practice of
minefilling of coal combustion wastes.
On April 25, 2000 EPA issued a
regulatory determination for fossil fuel
combustion wastes (65 FR 32214, May
22, 2000) to announce its decision that
certain wastes from the combustion of
fossil fuels (including coal, oil and
natural gas) should remain exempt  from
Subtitle C (management as hazardous
waste) of RCRA. This regulatory
determination also announced that
regulations under RCRA  Subtitle D
(management as non-hazardous wastes)
are appropriate for management of
certain coal combustion wastes that are
disposed in landfills and surface
impoundments. In addition, EPA stated
its plan to consult with the U.S.
Department of the Interior on
appropriate measures under the Surface
Mining Control and Reclamation Act
(SMCRA) or RCRA or some
combination of both, to address the
disposal of coal combustion wastes
when used for minefilling in surface or
underground mines. Although the
utility industry has made significant
improvements in waste management
practices over recent years, and most
state regulatory programs are similarly
improving, public comments and other
analyses have convinced the Agency
that coal combustion wastes could pose
risks to human health and the
environment, if they are not properly
managed. There is sufficient evidence
that adequate controls may not be in
place. For example, while most states
                                                         can now require newer waste
                                                         management units to include liners and
                                                         groundwater monitoring, less than
                                                         about 50% of existing non-utility
                                                         landfills are lined (these statistics
                                                         exclude municipal solid waste landfills
                                                         which are not the subject of this
                                                         action). EPA acknowledges that some
                                                         waste management units may not
                                                         warrant liners and/or groundwater
                                                         monitoring, depending on site-specific
                                                         characteristics. The Agency also
                                                         decided that the practice of minefilling
                                                         coal combustion wastes could present
                                                         a danger to human health and the
                                                         environment under certain
                                                         circumstances. Since there are few
                                                         states that currently operate
                                                         comprehensive programs that
                                                         specifically address the unique
                                                         circumstances of minefilling, the
                                                         Agency believes national regulations

Abstract: Buncombe County proposed
a project under EPA's Project XL to use
certain bioreactor techniques  at its
municipal solid waste landfill
(MSWLF), specifically, the recirculation
of landfill leachate, with the possible
addition of water, to accelerate the
biodegradation of landfill waste and to
decrease the time it takes for  the waste
to reach stabilization in the landfill. A
component of this project will include
landfill gas recovery. The principal
objective of this XL project is to
evaluate the rate of waste
decomposition when leachate is added
to the landfill and monitor the rate of
gas generation. To implement this
project, Buncombe County will need
relief from certain regulatory
requirements in EPA regulations which
set forth the construction and operating
criteria for MSWLFs. Proponents of
bioreactor technology note that
operation of MSWLFs as bioreactors
provide a number of environmental
benefits including: (1) increasing the
rate of waste decomposition which in
turn  extends the operating life of the
landfill and lessens the need for
additional landfill space or other
disposal options;  (2) decreasing or even
eliminating the quantity leachate
requiring treatment and offsite disposal
while improving the  quality, leading to
reduced post closure care costs and
fewer risks; (4) lower long term
potential  for leachate migration into the
subsurface environment; and (5)
opportunity for recovery of methane gas
for energy production.

Abstract: Following a major inland oil
spill with substantial environmental
impacts (i.e., Ashland Oil in Floreffe,
PA, in January 1988), an interagency
task force recommended steps to
improve EPA's oil spill prevention
program {40 CFR part 112).  This
program requires oil storage facilities to
prevent and contain discharges that
could reach waters of the United States.
On October 22, 1991, the Agency
proposed revisions to implement some
of the task force recommendations and
on February 17, 1993, the Agency
proposed further clarifications and
technical changes to the spill
prevention regulations. On December 2,
1997, EPA supplemented the 1991 and
1993 proposed revisions with a
proposal to reduce burdens associated
with the oil spill prevention program
by reducing the recordkeeping
provisions or exempting some facilities
from some recordkeeping requirements.
This rule will take final action on the
1991, 1993, and 1997 proposals.

Abstract: EPA has listed carbamate
waste streams as hazardous wastes
under the Resource Conservation and
Recovery Act (RCRA). RCRA listed
wastes, by statute, automatically
become hazardous substances under the
Comprehensive Environmental
Response, Compensation, and Liability
Act (CERCLA) and are assigned a one
pound statutory reportable quantity
(RQJ unless EPA adjusts them. These
substances also become subject to
reporting requirements under the
Emergency Planning and Community
Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) with a one
pound threshold. EPA, in this action,
will propose RQ adjustments for the
carbamates. Most RQ adjustments are
expected to be greater than one pound.
Raising the RQs for these substances
would decrease the burden on 1) the
regulated community for complying
with the reporting requirements under
CERCLA and EPCRA; 2) Federal, State,
and local authorities for program
implementation; and 3) Federal, State,
or local authorities, if they release
hazardous substances at the RQ level
or greater.

3546. REVISE 40 CFR PART 35
SUBPART O: COOPERATIVE
AGREEMENTS AND SUPERFUND
STATE CONTRACTS FOR
SUPERFUND RESPONSE ACTIONS
Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 9601 to 9675
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 35 subpart O
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: 40 CFR part 35 subpart O is
the Superfund Administrative
Regulation that governs awarding of
Superfund cooperative agreements
(CAs) to States, Indian tribes, and
territories of the United States. Subpart
O covers State-lead, site-specific
cooperative agreements for non-time-
critical removal, preremedial, remedial,
and enforcement actions, and site-
specific management assistance for
federal-lead projects. Also covered by
subpart O are non-site-specific Core
Program and Voluntary Cleanup
Program State infrastructure
development, as well as Brownfields
pilots, and Brownfields assessments.
The requirements for Superfund State
contracts, financial administration,
property, procurement, reporting,
recordkeeping, and closeout are
provided in subpart O.

Subpart O was promulgated 6/5/1990,
and became effective on 7/5/1990.
Many changes in the Superfund
program have occurred over the past
almost  ten years and these need to be
reflected in subpart O. The six
categories of CAs presently used in
subpart O need greater flexibility to
accommodate the new types of CAs
that have developed. For example, the
number of Block Funding Reform
pilots, begun in  1997, to consolidate
several of the cooperative agreements
offered in subpart O, has grown to
about 16 for fiscal year 2000, and have
generated at least 60 approved
deviation requests from subpart O and
40 CFR part 31.  These pilot projects
offer considerable administrative relief
to States, tribes, and EPA by reducing
reporting requirements, broadening
scope changes without amendment,
increasing the ability to  move monies
within  and among CAs,  and relaxing
application requirements regarding site-
specific identification of cooperative
agreement funds to  certain activities,
while maintaining site-specific
drawdown requirements needed for
cost recovery and Superfund
accounting. Subpart O also needs to be
conformed with part 31 (Uniform
Administrative Requirements for Grants
and Cooperative Agreements).
EPA expects to institutionalize the
combining of CA types, create more
flexible reporting requirements, permit
greater scope changes without
amendment, provide more flexible
money movement within and among
CAs, and other policy advances in
State/tribal/EPA interaction.

3548. STREAMLINING THE
PREAUTHORIZATION MIXED
FUNDING FOR APPLICATION AND
IMPLEMENTATION OF CLAIMS
AGAINST SUPERFUND
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 9601
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 307
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: Current regulations at 40 CFR
part 307 provide for the
preauthorization of claims against the
Superfund in  instances where the
Agency makes a determination that
mixed funding is appropriate. This
process has been labeled by many
stakeholders as overly burdensome. The
Agency has reviewed the current
process in order to identify areas in
which burdens may be lessened and
requirements may be streamlined. As a
result, the Agency is considering a
proposal to amend the current
regulation to:  streamline the application
process by eliminating duplicative
information requirements; minimize the
requirements related to management,
oversight,  and reporting of the cleanup,
by removing the requirement to be
guided by the Federal Acquisition
Requirements, and replacing the
requirement of maximum free and open
competition with a bright-line standard;
allow claimants to provide independent
certification of claims and supporting
documentation; streamline the actual
payment process by taking advantage of
the electronic funds transfer process;
ensure that cost recovery concerns are
addressed by requiring claimants,
within a settlement document, to
reimburse the Fund for costs not
recovered (only in the event cost
recovery is initiated), due to claimants'
failure to provide adequate
documentary support or upon a
determination that response costs
expended (and claimed) were not
reasonable or not incurred consistent
with the National Contingency Plan
and ensure proper accounting by
requiring offsets for funds owed to the
Agency by claimants.

                  DESIGNATION OF HAZARDOUS
                  SUBSTANCES UNDER CERCLA

                  CFR Citation: 40 CFR 302.4
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This action will address the
development of evaluation criteria for
the designation of substances as
hazardous under CERCLA. It is
necessary to develop evaluation criteria
because the Agency has the authority
under CERCLA 102(a) to designate
substances as hazardous; however, the
Agency does not have criteria to do so.
To date the only substances  designated
as CERCLA hazardous substances are as
a result of their appearance on other
Acts' lists defined under CERCLA
101(14). Using CERCLA designation
criteria the Agency may establish
CERCLA hazardous substances
independently from other Acts, in the
interest of public health and the
environment.

The purpose of this action is to have
well thought-out criteria for  designating
hazardous substances that may be
applied to individual substances for
evaluation and decision as to whether
or not the substance should be
appropriately designated a CERCLA
102(a) hazardous substance.  The
Agency already has the authority to
designate substances as hazardous; in
this action, criteria will be developed
to implement that authority.

Abstract: The effluent guidelines will
apply to construction activities
associated with new development, as
well as to those associated with re-
development activities. The regulations
will address storm water runoff from
construction sites during the active
phase of construction, as well as post-
construction runoff. Construction
activity is  a major source of sediment
and other pollutants discharged to the
nation's waters. Industries  potentially
affected by this rulemaking include
land developers, home builders,
builders of commercial and industrial
property, and other private and public
sector construction site owners and
operators.  EPA will develop  design
criteria for erosion and sediment
controls and storm water best
management practices (BMPs). These
requirements will be implemented in
NPDES storm water permits issued to
construction site owners and operators.

Abstract: The Agency is revising
effluent limitations guidelines and
standards for the Meat Products Point
Source Category. The current
regulations, at 40 CFR 432, are more
than 20 years old and are limited to
a few  conventional pollutants. Recent
                                                        concerns about nutrient discharges
                                                        from these facilities might be resolved
                                                        by additional effluent limitations. In
                                                        particular, the current regulations do
                                                        not address ammonia nitrogen for red

Abstract: Under the CWA, States have
primary authority in developing water
quality standards for waters within
their jurisdiction. EPA maintains
oversight authority in that States must
submit their water quality standards to
EPA for review and approval or
disapproval. If a  State's water quality
standards are not consistent with the
requirements of the CWA and its
supporting regulations, and are
subsequently disapproved by EPA, the
State must revise the disapproved water
quality standards. If the State does not
revise the disapproved water quality
standards, the CWA authorizes  the EPA
Administrator to promulgate Federal
water quality standards to supersede
those disapproved provisions in the
water quality standards. EPA is
developing a proposed rule to
determine the appropriate use
designations for five waterbodies in
Alabama that EPA disapproved in 1986
and 1991.

3554. WATER QUALITY STANDARDS

Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory, 90
days after NPRM.
Abstract: EPA is proposing a national
rule containing core federal water
quality standards (WQS) to support
tailored, site-specific decisions for
certain waters in Indian country that
do not have EPA-approved Tribal
standards. EPA is contemplating this
rule as a first step towards ensuring
that the core Clean  Water Act (CWA)
framework for protecting water quality
is in place for all such waters. The core
federal water quality standards would
establish: use designations consistent
with CWA section 101 (a) goals, cultural
and traditional, and other uses;
narrative water quality criteria for
protecting the designated uses; numeric
criteria for priority  toxic pollutants for
further protecting the designated uses;
and an antidegradation policy designed
to protect water quality. Such standards
would provide a basis for EPA (in
consultation with a Tribe) to affect
pollution discharges occurring
upstream from Tribal waters; provide
a legally enforceable basis for including
water quality based limitations or
conditions in permits or certifications
for discharges within Indian country;
and provide the basis for establishing
Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs)
for Indian country waters. A federal
promulgation would not prevent Tribes
from developing their own standards.

Ambient water contamination is
determined by the presence of bacterial
indicators. In 1986, EPA issued a
revision to its bacteriological ambient
water quality criteria recommendations
to include new indicator bacteria, E.
coli and enterococci. To support the
ambient water quality criteria for
bacteria, EPA is planning to promulgate
several analytical methods for
monitoring E. coli and enterococci in
ambient water. This proposed
regulation would approve test
procedures to be available for use by
testing laboratories.

Abstract: This rulemaking affects, at a
minimum, existing electricity
generating facilities that employ cooling
water intake structures and whose
intake flow levels exceed a minimum
threshold to be determined by EPA
during the rulemaking. Section 316(b)
of the Clean Water Act provides that
any standard established pursuant to
sections 301 or 306 of the Clean Water
Act and applicable to a point source
shall require that the location, design,
construction, and capacity of cooling
water intake structures reflect the best
technology available for minimizing
adverse environmental impact. A
primary purpose of the rulemaking is
to minimize the impingement and
entrainment of fish and other aquatic
organisms by cooling water intake
structures. Impingement refers to
trapping fish and other aquatic life
against cooling water intake screens.
Entrainment occurs when aquatic
organisms, eggs, and larvae are drawn
into the cooling system, through the
heat exchanger,  and then pumped back
out, often with significant injury or
mortality to the  entrained organisms.

NPDES requirements in parts 122, 123,
and 124 to eliminate redundant
regulations, provide clarification, and
remove or streamline unnecessary
procedures. Revisions under
consideration in this rule include
adding additional permit modifications
that can be considered minor
modifications at 122.63, and changes to
requirements concerning EPA's review
of State permits. Other revisions may
be considered as work on this rule
progresses. This rulemaking is expected
to affect entities which implement the
NPDES program or are regulated by it.
This includes small businesses and
State, tribal and local governments.
Most of these effects are expected  to
be deregulatory or streamlining in

framework for sanitary sewer collection
systems under the NPDES program. The
Agency is proposing standard permit
conditions for inclusion in permits for
publicly owned treatment works

collection systems. The standard
requirements address reporting, public
notification, and recordkeeping
requirements for sanitary sewer
overflows (SSOs), capacity assurance,
management,  operation and
maintenance requirements for
municipal sanitary sewer collection
systems; and a prohibition on SSOs.

3560. RECOGNITION AWARDS UNDER
THE CLEAN WATER ACT

Legal Authority: CWA 50l(e); 33 USC
1361 (a) and (e)

CFR Citation: 40 CFR 105 (New)

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: The Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) is establishing
a framework for the annual Clean Water
Act (CWA) Recognition Awards known
as the National Wastewater
Management Excellence Awards
Program. Section 501(e) of the CWA
authorized the Administrator, on behalf
of the U.S. Government, to recognize
outstanding technological achievements
or innovative processes, methods or
devices in waste treatment and
pollution abatement programs. The rule
would establish regulations under
which the recognition may be applied
for and granted. The existing awards
program recognizes innovative and
outstanding achievements, processes,
methods or devices in: Operations and
Maintenance (O&M) of Publicly Owned
Treatment Works (POTW); Biosolids
Management (Biosolids); POTW
Pretreatment Programs; Municipal and
Industrial Storm Water (SW)
Management; and Combined Sewer
Overflows (CSO) Controls. These
wastewater management programs can
generally be characterized as waste
treatment and/or pollution abatement
programs. EPA may later establish,
discontinue, combine or rename
categories by guidance published in the
Federal Register. Though the Agency
has conducted an awards program for
many years, the rulemaking action
clearly acknowledges the basis for the
program.  EPA is formalizing the CWA
Recognition Awards program using a
direct final rulemaking because the
agency does not expect adverse
comments. Unless the Agency receives
comments requiring a response during
the public comment period associated
with an identical companion proposed
rule published elsewhere in the Federal
Register on the same day, the
formalized program would become
effective without further notice.

Abstract: EPA is proposing to modify
the existing regulations implementing
the ocean protection provisions of
section 403 of the Clean Water Act. A
key element of the proposed rule would
provide for establishment of baseline
water quality standards for ocean
waters beyond three miles offshore.
These waters, designated "Healthy
Ocean Waters,"  would be protected by
both  a narrative statement of desired
quality and pollutant-specific numeric
criteria. The proposed rule also would
strengthen the requirements for a
permit to discharge to any ocean
waters, and would establish a number
of Special Ocean Sites (SOSs), which
are areas within ocean waters that are
of outstanding value, where new and
significantly expanded discharges
would be prohibited. The proposed rule
will  enhance the protection of the
ocean environment and meet the goals
of President Clinton's Executive Order
on Marine Protected Areas (E.O.
13158).

Abstract: This action involves joint
rulemaking by EPA and the Department
of the Army to amend the regulatory
definition of waters of the United
States. The proposal would clarify the
jurisdictional status under the Clean
Water Act (CWA) of so-called
"isolated" intrastate waters and
wetlands. The existing regulations
contain language asserting jurisdiction
over isolated intrastate waters, but that
regulatory provision has been the
subject of a January 9, 2001, U.S.
Supreme Court opinion. Revision of the
regulatory language is necessary to
address the Court's decision, improve
regulatory clarity, and provide more
specificity regarding CWA jurisdiction..
The rulemaking would clarify CWA
jurisdiction for entities (e.g., industrial,
commercial, governmental) that
discharge pollutants, including dredged
or fill material, to isolated intrastate
surface waters or wetlands. Significant
impacts on small entities or
state/local/tribal governments are not

3563.  •  CLEAN WATER STATE
REVOLVING FUND REGULATION
REVISIONS RE: USE AS MATCHING
FUNDS
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 33 USC I383(h)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 35.3125(b)(l)
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This regulation will revise
the Clean Water State Revolving Fund
(SRF)  Regulations to allow the use of
the SRF as a match for infrastructure
grants. In 1990, EPA issued regulations
implementing the Clean Water State
Revolving Fund (CW SRF) program,
established as Title VI of the  Clean
Water Act (CWA) in 1987. Section
603 (h) of the CWA prohibits use of the
CW SRF loan as matching funds with
respect to the non-Federal share of the
cost of a treatment  works project for
which a municipality or agency is
receiving assistance from the
Administrator under any other
authority. In issuing its regulations,
EPA interpreted this prohibition
broadly, applying the restriction to all
treatment works construction. At that
time, EPA believed the replacement of
the construction grants program

EPA—Clean Water Act  (CWA)
                                                                      Proposed  Rule  Stage
authorized by Title II of the CWA by
the CW SRF would result in a
significant decrease in the use of
Federal grant funds for construction of
treatment works. However, from FY
1995 onward, Congress has authorized
and appropriated funds for
infrastructure construction grants in
various Appropriations Acts. At this
time, there are over 700 projects
totaling over $3.3 billion dollars. In
several cases, EPA has been asked to
allow CW SRF funds to be used as a
match  for these grants; our regulation
at 40 CFR 35.3125(b)(l) prohibits such
action. However, upon reconsideration,
EPA has decided its initial reading in
1990 was too broad, and the intent of
Congress was only to prohibit use of
CW SRF loans  as match for Title II
construction grants. This action will
revise the regulations to allow a State,
in its operation of its CW SRF, to
provide a loan to non-Title II
infrastructure construction grant
projects as a non-federal match. The
prohibition on the use of CW SRF as
a match for a Title II construction grant
will continue.

Abstract: This proposal would amend
Method 1631 to add new requirements
for clean techniques and quality control
(QC) beyond those specified in EPA
Method 1631 for the determination of
mercury  at  water quality criteria levels.
EPA Method 1631 was promulgated at
40 CFR 136 in June 1999. Later that
year, the  Alliance of Automobile
Manufacturers, the Chemical
Manufacturers Association, and the
Utility Water Act Group ("Petitioners")
filed a petition for judicial review of
the final  rule. One of the issues in the
petition related to the clean  sampling
techniques  and QC requirements in the
Method. As part of a Settlement
Agreement  in October 2000, EPA
agreed to sign a Federal Register notice
proposing additional clean techniques
and QC requirements for Method 1631
by September 30, 2001, and  to sign a
final rule by September 30, 2002. EPA
also plans to publish a correction
notice on Method 1631 prior to
proposal  of the new clean techniques
and QC requirements to clarify the use
of field bland subtraction.

TO RATIFY OR WITHDRAW WHOLE
EFFLUENT TOXICITY TEST METHODS
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

agreement.
Final, Judicial, September 24, 2002,
Settlement agreement.
Abstract: This regulatory action would
propose to amend the Guidelines
Establishing Test Procedures for the
Analysis of Pollutants under 40 CFR
part 136 by revising several whole
effluent toxicity (WET) test methods
and by ratifying or withdrawing WET
test methods listed in Table IA for use
under the Clean Water Act. These
methods were promulgated on October
16, 1995 (60 FR 53529). The proposed
regulation is needed to satisfy the terms
of two settlement agreements (entered
into by EPA and Edison Electric
Institute, et al., and Western Coalition
of Arid States on July 24,  1998; and
entered  into by EPA and Lone Star
Steel in  January, 1997). This proposal
will amend the  1995 rule  by revising
three WET method manuals, and by
ratifying or withdrawing each of the
WET test methods challenged in the
settlement agreements from these three
manuals. Specific revisions include: the
requirement of blocking by parentage in
Method  1002, the requirement for
demonstration of valid concentration-
response relationships, the inclusion of
specific  procedures to control pH drift,
and the  inclusion of procedures to
reduce pathogenic interferences in
Method  1000.

                    Abstract: This action will propose
                    revisions to subpart J of the National
                    Contingency Plan (NCP) (40 CFR part
                    300.900). Section 311(d)(2)(G) of the
                    Clean Water Act requires that EPA
                    prepare a schedule of dispersants, other
                    chemicals, and other  spill mitigating
                    devices and substances, if any, that
                    may be used in carrying out the NCP.
                    Under subpart J, respondents wishing
                    to add a product to the Product
                    Schedule must submit technical
                    product  data specified in 40 CFR
                    300.915  to EPA. This rulemaking will
                    propose revisions to subpart J to clarify
                    and change protocols for effectiveness
                    and toxicity testing. It will clarify EPA
                    authority to remove products from the
                    Product  Schedule. These changes will
                    help ensure protection of the
                    environment when these products are
                    used to clean up and mitigate oil spills
                    onto land and water.

Abstract: This regulatory action would
amend the "Guidelines Establishing
Test Procedures for the Analysis of
Pollutants" under 40 CFR part  136,
National Primary Drinking Water
Regulations under 40 CFR part 141, and
National Secondary Drinking Water
Regulations under 40 CFR part 143  to
approve updated versions of analytical
test procedures (methods) from
voluntary consensus standards  bodies
and other organizations. These  methods
are used to comply with monitoring
requirements in  the wastewater and
drinking water programs, as authorized
under the  Clean Water Act (CWA) and
the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA).
This regulation would approve updated
versions of methods for determination
of chemical, radiological, and
microbiological pollutants in
wastewater and  drinking water. The
updates are to methods from voluntary
consensus standards bodies (the
American Society for Testing and
Materials and Standard Methods) and
from the U.S. Geological Survey and
the Department of Energy. Previously
approved versions of the methods being
updated remain  approved. Because  the
changes should be noncontroversial,
the amendments are being done
through a direct final rule. A
companion proposed rule will be
published in case there are substantive
adverse comments.

primary purpose of this action is to
minimize the impingement and
entrainment of fish and other aquatic
organisms by cooling water intake
structures. Impingement refers to
trapping fish and other aquatic life
against cooling water intake screens.
Entrainment occurs when aquatic
organisms, eggs and larvae are drawn
into the cooling system through the
heat exchanger, and then pumped back
out, often with significant injury or
mortality to the entrained organisms.

Abstract: The final rule will be
promulgated as a program streamlining
activity. The rule will revise certain
provisions in the General Pretreatment
Regulations (40 CFR part 403) that
address restrictions on and oversight of
industrial discharges into Publicly
Owned Treatment Works (POTWs). The
final rule will include exclusions or
variable requirements for smaller
facilities that contribute insignificant
amounts of pollutants, clarify
requirements for implementing
Pretreatment Standards, and provide
more flexible reporting, inspection and
sampling requirements. The revisions
should provide greater flexibility,
reduce  burden, and achieve improved
environmental results at less cost for
regulatory authorities and the regulated
community.

3573. COMPARISON OF DREDGED
MATERIAL TO REFERENCE
SEDIMENT

Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

Legal Authority: 33 USC 1344 CWA sec
404

CFR Citation: 40 CFR 230

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: This action would revise the
testing provisions of the Clean Water
Act section 404(b)(l) Guidelines to
provide for comparisons between
dredged material proposed for
discharge and reference sediment.
Reference sediment would be defined
as sediment that reflects conditions at
the  disposal site had no dredged
material disposal ever occurred there.
Because the disposal site itself is
currently used as the point of
comparison, this action would make a
technical improvement in assessing
cumulative impacts and help make
dredged material testing under section
404 more consistent with that
conducted for ocean disposal, which
currently employs a reference sediment
approach. This action is not expected
to have a significant impact on state,
local, or tribal governments or small
business, as the action will be limited
to Corps projects and permit
applications for which dredged material
testing is necessary, and because the
effect of the action will be limited to
changing the location of an otherwise
collected sample.

Final, Judicial, December 15, 2001.
Abstract: Section 405 of the Clean
Water Act (CWA) requires EPA to
promulgate regulations providing
guidelines for the use and disposal of
sewage sludge. The rules, among other
things, are to identify uses for sewage
sludge, including disposal, and
concentrations of pollutants  which
interfere with such use or disposal. The
statute establishes a schedule for EPA
to identify and regulate toxic pollutants
in sewage sludge in two rounds:  first
with respect to those  toxic pollutants
for which information is available and
subsequently, with respect to those
toxic pollutants in sewage sludge not
regulated in the first round which may
adversely affect public health and the
environment. The regulations must
specify management practices,
including numeric limits, for each such
pollutant, for each use or disposal
practice. EPA published the  first round
of sewage sludge regulations, pursuant
to a court ordered schedule,  in
February 1993 (58 FR 9247)  and
proposed round two regulations in
December 1999. EPA's round two
proposal identified dioxins,
dibenzofurans and coplanar
polychlorinated biphenyls as the
additional toxic pollutants in sewage
sludge  to be regulated for sewage
sludge  that  is to be applied to the land.
The consent decree requires  EPA to
take final action on proposed round
two regulations by December 15, 2001.

                    in which it treats states for purposes
                    of obtaining financial assistance.

                    As part of the Beaches Environmental
                    Assessment and Coastal Health Act of
                    2000, EPA is authorized to award
                    grants to develop and implement
                    monitoring and notification programs
                    for coastal or Great lakes recreational
                    waters. This rule  will describe the
                    requirements for Indian tribes to
                    become eligible for grants.

Abstract: EPA is developing effluent
limitations guidelines for facilities that
generate wastewater while processing
metal parts; metal products; and
machinery, including manufacture,
assembly, rebuilding, repair, and
maintenance. A proposed rule in 1995
covered seven industrial groups:
aircraft, aerospace, hardware, ordnance,
stationary industrial equipment, mobile
industrial equipment, and  electronic
equipment. EPA has consolidated this
rulemaking with a second  phase, and
coverage will include additional
industrial groups such as: bus and
truck, household equipment,
instruments, motor vehicles, office
machines, precious metals and jewelry,
railroads, job shops, printed circuit
boards, and ships and boats. The
deadlines and timetable apply to the
consolidated Phase 1 and 2 rulemaking.

limitations guidelines and standards for
8 of the 12 subcategories for this
industrial  category: Unbleached Kraft;
Semi-Chemical; Mechanical Pulp; Non-
Wood Chemical Pulp; Secondary Fiber
Deink; Secondary Fiber Non-Deink;
Fine and Lightweight Papers from
Purchased Pulp; and Tissue, Filter,
Non-Woven, and Paperboard from
Purchased Pulp. EPA proposed
guidelines and standards for these
subcategories as part of the Pulp and
Paper Rules (also known as the Cluster
Rules) in December 1993. The Agency
intends to develop these revised
effluent limitations in close
coordination with the Office of Air
Quality Planning and Standards.

Abstract: Feedlot operations are
covered by existing effluent guidelines
at 40 CFR 412 and concentrated animal
feeding operations (CAFOs) are covered
by permitting regulations at 40 CFR
122.23. This action will revise the
existing effluent guidelines to address
swine, poultry, beef, and dairy cattle
operations and the NPDES regulation
for concentrated animal feeding
operations. The existing regulations,
which require the largest confined
animal feeding operations to achieve
zero discharge of wastes to surface
waters except for  certain storm related
discharges, have not been sufficient to
resolve water quality impairment from
feedlot operations. Feedlot operations
are substantial contributors of nutrients
in surface waters that have severe
anoxia (low levels of dissolved oxygen)
and problem algae blooms.

new effort to develop pollutant controls
in the form of nationally applicable
discharge standards for commercial and
public aquaculture operations.
In assessments of surface water quality,
States most frequently cite station,
nutrients, and pathogens as the major
cause of water quality impairment.
With the growth of the aquaculture
industry, and inconsistent state
regulatory oversight, EPA will examine
available technologies for the control of
pollutants, primarily nutrients.  This
action was formerly titled

CONTAINER AND DRUM CLEANING
POINT SOURCE CATEGORY
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 30 USC 1311 et seq
CFR Citation: Not Yet Determined
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: Industrial facilities that clean
out 55 gallon drums and other
industrial sized containers are not
                     currently subject to nationally
                     applicable wastewater treatment
                     standards. Many types of toxic and
                     hazardous materials, including
                     pesticides, solvents, and petrochemical
                     products are transported in bulk via
                     drums and containers. Most of these
                     containers have a residue,  or heel,
                     present in the containers before they
                     are cleaned. The accumulation of
                     residue from large numbers of drums
                     and containers may result  in the
                     discharge of pollutants to the nations
                     waterways.
                     This regulation will cover  those
                     facilities that clean out drums and
                     industrial sized containers as a
                     business, and will generally not cover
                     industrial facilities that clean out their
                     own drums  and containers used on site.

Abstract: Water quality standards set
by States and Indian tribes establish the
water quality goals for surface waters
of the U.S. and the means by which
attainment of these goals will be
measured and assured. They are the
foundation for protecting water quality
and related public health and welfare
and the ecological health of the nation's
waters. The Federal water quality
standards regulation at 40 CFR Part 131
governs the development, review and
revision of water quality standards
under section 303(c) of the Clean Water
Act by States and Indian Tribes, and
the review and approval of water
quality standards by EPA. Based upon
the Federal, State, Tribal and local
experience gained in the program over
the last 20 years, EPA's proposed
revisions to 40 CFR 131 are intended
to strengthen the water quality
standards regulation thus enhancing
water quality management on a
watershed basis, and focusing Federal,
State and Tribal resources on the areas
of greatest concern. Program areas
identified for revision include mixing
zone policies and procedures.

Abstract: This regulatory action would
propose to amend the Guidelines
Establishing Test Procedures for the
Analysis of Pollutants under 40 CFR
part 136 to approve new EPA methods
for the determination of trace metals at
EPA's water quality criteria levels.
These methods  are necessary for the
implementation of water quality-based
permits under the National Pollutant
Discharge Elimination System (NPDES)
of the Clean Water Act. Water quality-
based permits are necessary when
technology-based controls do not
ensure that a particular water body
would meet the State's designated
water quality standard. Because the
methods currently approved under 40
CFR part 136 were designed to support
primarily technology-based permitting
needs, and because these technology-
based levels are as much as 280 times
higher than water quality-based criteria
for metals, approval of new EPA test
procedures is necessary.

304 (h); 33 USC 1361(a) CWA 501 (a)

CFR Citation: 40 CFR 136

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: This regulatory action would
highlight the flexibility already
contained in the 600 and 1600 series
of EPA Methods that are currently
approved for Clean Water Act
compliance monitoring under 40 CFR
part 136, Guidelines Establishing Test
Procedures for the Analysis of
Pollutants. These methods typically
contain a statement that, in recognition
of advances that are occurring in
analytical technology, and to allow the
analyst to overcome sample matrix
interferences, the analyst is permitted
certain options to improve separations
or lower the costs of measurements.
These options include alternate
extraction, concentration, cleanup
procedures, and changes in columns
and detectors. The methods further
require the analyst to demonstrate that
the method modifications will not
adversely affect the quality of data by
generating quality control results that
meet the specifications contained in the
method. Despite this stated flexibility,
the Agency has found that many
NPDES and pretreatment permitting
authorities are not aware of this
flexibility when issuing or enforcing
NPDES and pretreatment permits.
Therefore, this regulatory action will
highlight the existing method flexibility
and clarify EPA's position regarding its
application. This action will also
extend this flexibility to other methods
currently approved under 40 CFR part
136. The purpose of extending this
flexibility to other methods is to (1)
increase consistency between methods,
(2) provide for increased recognition of
advances in analytical technology, and
(3) reduce costs associated with
analytical measurements.

3588. TEST PROCEDURES FOR THE
ANALYSIS OF CO-PLANAR AND

Abstract: This regulatory action would
propose to amend the Guidelines
Establishing Test Procedures for the
Analysis of Pollutants under 40 CFR
parts 136 and 503 to approve EPA
Method 1668 for the congener-specific
determination of co-planar and mono-
ortho-substituted polychlorinated
biphenyls (PCBs) in effluent ambient
water and sludge. This method is
necessary for the implementation of
water quality-based permits under the
National Pollutant Discharge
Elimination System (NPDES) of the
Clean Water Act. Water quality-based
permits are necessary when technology-
based controls do not ensure that a
particular water body would meet the
State's designated water quality
standard. At present there is no EPA
analytical method for determination of
these PCBs at the levels of concern.
Therefore, approval of a new EPA test
procedure is necessary.

                                               promulgated Method 1631, which also
                                               determines mercury at low ppt
                                               concentrations.
                                               Method 245.7 uses similar technology
                                               to Method 1631 (cold vapor atomic

3591. REVISIONS TO METHOD
DETECTION AND QUANTIFICATION
FOR USE UNDER THE CLEAN WATER
ACT AND SAFE DRINKING WATER
ACT
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

Legal Authority: 33 USC 1251 et seq;
33 USC 1314(h); 33 USC 1361(a); 42
USC 300f
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 136(b)
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This regulatory action would
propose to amend the "Guidelines
Establishing Test Procedures for the
Analysis of Pollutants" under 40 CFR
part 136 to approve revisions to the
detection and quantification procedures
currently used by EPA for those
analytes regulated in the wastewater
program as authorized under the Clean
Water Act (CWA) and in the drinking
water program under the Safe Drinking
Water Act (SDWA). The current method
detection limit (MDL) procedure is set
forth at  40 CFR part 136, appendix B.
EPA's Office of Water has not
promulgated a generic procedure for
quantification but it uses the minimum
level of quantitation (ML) in its
wastewater program and the practical
quantitation level (PQL) in its drinking
water program. The ML is defined in
analytical methods and is generally set
at 3.18 times the MDL. The PQL is
generally set at five to ten times the
MDL. The Office of Water has been
working to revise and refine these
concepts in response to the need to
regulate pollutants at low levels (often
levels that are lower than measurement
capabilities will allow) and to address
other potential approaches to detection
and quantification, including concepts
being introduced by outside
organizations such as voluntary
consensus standards bodies (VCSBs).
The rulemaking would also address
criticisms to the current MDL and
quantification approaches which have
been raised by outside organizations.
Additionally, EPA will consider
whether other approaches from VCSBs
are acceptable for EPA's regulatory
needs.

3592. UNIFORM NATIONAL
DISCHARGE STANDARDS FOR
VESSELS OF THE ARMED FORCES -
PHASE II
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 33 USC 1322; 33 USC
1361
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 1700
Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory, May
10, 2001.
Abstract: This action is phase II of
implementing regulations on Uniform
National Discharge Standards for
Vessels of the Armed Forces. In 1996
the Clean Water Act was amended to
create section 312(n), "Uniform
National Discharge Standards for
Vessels of the Armed Forces." Section
312(n)  directs EPA and DOD to work
together to provide Armed Forces
vessels with a nationally uniform set
of discharge standards, which preempt
State discharge standards for these
vessels. The purpose of the statute is
to allow DOD to plan, design and build
environmentally sound vessels, to
encourage innovative pollution control
technology, and to improve operational
flexibility. EPA and DOD jointly
promulgated Phase I of these
regulations, 40 CFR part 1700, on May
10, 1999 (64 FR 25126). The Phase I
rulemaking concluded that 25
discharges from Armed Forces vessels
would require control devices. Some of
these discharges have the potential to
introduce oil or other organics into
receiving waters (such as bilge water);
some have the potential to introduce
copper or other metals (such as fire
main); and some have the potential to
introduce nonindigenous invasive
aquatic species (such as ballast water).
Phase II will establish performance
standards for control devices for these
25 discharges. Once DOD implements
rules for achieving the standards set in
phase II, covered discharges from
Armed Forces vessels will be required
to meet these standards, and will not
be subject to discharge standards
established by States.

minimum threshold EPA will
determine during this rulemaking. The
affected facilities include 1) electricity
generating facilities not covered by
Phase 2 regulations; 2) pulp and paper
manufacturing facilities; 3) chemicals
and allied products manufacturing
facilities; 4) petroleum and coal
products manufacturing facilities; and
5) primary metals manufacturing
facilities. Section 316(b) of the Clean
Water Act provides that any standard
established pursuant to sections 301  or
306 of the Clean Water Act and
applicable to a point source shall
require that the location, design,
construction, and capacity of cooling
water intake structures  reflect the best
technology available for minimizing
adverse environmental impact.  A
primary purpose of this action is to
minimize the impingement and
entrainment of fish and other aquatic
organisms by cooling water intake
structures. Impingement refers to
trapping fish and other aquatic life
against cooling water intake structures.
Entrainment occurs when aquatic
organisms, eggs and larvae are drawn
into the cooling system, through the
heat exchanger, and then pumped back
out with significant injury or mortality
to the entrained organisms.

Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: All existing manufacturing,
commercial, mining, and silvicultural
operations requiring a National
Pollutant Discharge Elimination System
(NPDES) permit must submit an
application in  order to obtain a permit.
The existing industrial application form
has not been revised since 1984 and
needs to be updated to reflect statutory
and related regulatory changes in the
NPDES and water quality standards
program. The purpose of this action
would be to revise and consolidate
existing application forms and
requirements for industries,  and  to
streamline the  permit application
process for these facilities. The Agency
seeks to establish a unified process that
minimizes the  need for additional
information from applicants while
providing permit writers the necessary
information, including toxics data, to
ensure that permits adequately address
concerns of permittees and
environmental protection. The Agency
will seek to allow the use of existing
data to the extent possible and to avoid
unnecessary reporting. The Agency  is
                                                           also considering how to utilize
                                                           electronic data submission. Although
                                                           these forms will increase the burden on
                                                           permittees not already required to

                                                           submit the data. The Agency is
                                                           reviewing ways to minimize the need

Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 33 USC 1344
CFR Citation: 33 CFR 323.2(e); 40 CFR

Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: Section 404 of the Clean
Water Act requires a permit from the
US Army Corps of Engineers (Corps)
for discharges of dredged or fill
material to waters of the United States.
The Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) and Corps' regulations
implementing section 404 currently
contain  differing definitions of the term
"fill material." In particular, the Corps
regulations define fill material as being
used "for the primary purpose of"
replacing an aquatic area with dry land
or changing the bottom elevation of a
waterbody. In contrast, EPA's definition
of fill material looks to whether the
effect is to replace waters of the United
States with dry land or change the

test as found in the Corps regulations.
In order to clarify what constitutes "fill
material" for purposes of section 404
and provide improved regulatory
certainty, the Corps and EPA are
conducting notice and comment
rulemaking to achieve greater
consistency between the two agencies'
definitions of "fill material."

3600. EFFLUENT GUIDELINES AND
STANDARDS FOR THE ORGANIC
CHEMICALS, PLASTICS AND
SYNTHETIC  FIBERS CATEGORY
(COMPLETION OF A SECTION 610
REVIEW)
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 5 USC 610
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 414
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: In  November 1987, EPA
established effluent limitations
guidelines and standards  for the
Organic Chemicals, Plastics, and
Synthetic Fibers (OCPSF) industrial
category (52  FR 42522, November 5,
1987), under the authority of sections
301, 304, 306, 307, 308, 402, and 501
of the Clean  Water Act. In 1993, EPA
issued amendments to the final rule (58
FR  36872, July 9, 1993) to respond to
the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals'
remand decisions on the OCPSF
regulation. The 1993 amendments
resulted in little change to the number
or extent of small business impacts.
The 1987 final rule incorporated
special provisions (i.e., less stringent
regulations) to minimize the economic
impact for a  subset of small plants, and
the 1993 amendments maintained those
provisions. EPA conducted a regulatory
flexibility analysis for the final rule and
concluded (for the 1987 rulemaking
and again for the 1993 amendments)
that the effluent limitations are
economically achievable for the
industry as a whole, although some
small businesses would experience a
significant economic impact. The
analysis estimated impacts in terms of
plant and product  line closures and
profit and sales impacts. As reported
in the 1993 amendments, EPA
projected the following small business
impacts: for direct dischargers, EPA
projected significant impacts for 77
percent of the small plants; for indirect
dischargers, EPA projected significant
impacts for 63 percent of the small
plants.

In the November 22, 1999 Regulatory
Agenda, we indicated that we would
perform a review of this rule in
accordance with section 610 of the
Regulatory Flexibility Act. We are now
announcing completion of that review
and our decisions based on that review.
We have concluded that this rule
should remain in effect with no
modification. Our analysis confirmed
that effluent limitations for the OCPSF
industry are a necessary component of
the comprehensive program to restore
and maintain the quality of our
Nation's waters. In particular, the
OCPSF rule contributes significantly to
pollutant reductions, accounting for
reductions of more than 100 million
pounds per year. The Agency's Toxic
Release Inventory indicates that
releases from OCPSF facilities to
surface waters and to POTWs remain
an environmental concern, and that the
effluent limitations should remain in
place. Our analysis yielded no reasons
to amend or rescind the rule due to
need, complexity,  or overlap with other
rules. This conclusion is based on the
lack of adverse comments, or any
expressed need for a rule change from
the major stakeholders, including the
permitting authorities and the regulated
community. Our analysis also included
a review of the industry's technology
changes and economic conditions. We
did not identify innovations or other
process changes that would
significantly

CFR Citation: 40 CFR 141; 40 CFR 143
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The 1996 Safe Drinking
Water Act (SDWA) Amendments
require EPA to review new analytical
methods that may be used for regulated
contaminants screening or analysis,
including screening methods. After this
review, EPA may approve such
methods that are deemed more accurate
or cost-effective than established
          reference methods for use in
          compliance monitoring or the
          monitoring of unregulated
          contaminants. In this advanced notice
          of proposed rulemaking, EPA
          announces its intention to integrate the
          use of screening methods in the overall
          scheme of drinking water compliance
          monitoring. Efforts will be made to
          keep the proposal consistent with the
          Office of Water plan for Performance
          Based Methods (PBMS). EPA will
          identify regulated contaminates, types
          of monitoring and specific areas within
          each monitoring framework which are
          amenable to the use of screening
          methods. A logical application of
          screening procedures would be in a
          tiered monitoring mode where Tier 1
          (screening phase) would identify the
                                    principal problem areas while Tier 2
                                    would use sampling and analysis to
                                    more carefully identify and quantify
                                    specific contaminants. EPA would
                                    identify specific screening methods
                                    which are available for use based on
                                    their performance characteristics,
                                    tolerance to sample interferences,
                                    validation for drinking water analysis
                                    and correlation of results with
                                    traditional instrumental methods. The
                                    use of screening methods is expected
                                    to make drinking water compliance
                                    monitoring cheaper and faster, and
                                    provide flexibility to the Public Water
                                    Systems in the choice of analytical
                                    methods. Laboratory acceptance limits

3609.  DRINKING WATER:
REGULATORY DETERMINATIONS
REGARDING CONTAMINANTS ON
THE DRINKING WATER
CONTAMINANT CANDIDATE LIST
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 300f et seq;
SDWA 1412(b)(l)(B)
CFR Citation: Not Yet Determined
Legal Deadline: Other, Statutory,
August 6,  2001, Final Regulatory
Determination.
Abstract: The 1996 amendments to the
Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA)
requires EPA to publish a list of non-
regulated contaminants  every five
years, which may warrant regulation
due to their health effects and their
potential for occurrence in  public water
systems (PWSs). The first list, called
the Contaminant Candidate List (CCL),
was published in the Federal Register
on March  2, 1998 (63 FR 10274). When
establishing the 1998 CCL,  EPA divided
the contaminants among three main
categories: 1) contaminants which are
priorities for additional  research; 2)
contaminants which need additional
occurrence data; and 3) contaminants
which are priorities for consideration
for rulemaking. These contaminants are
collectively referred to as the
Regulatory Determination Priority
contaminants.
In addition to publishing the drinking
water CCL, the SDWA also requires the
Agency to select five or more
contaminants from the CCL and
determine, by August 2001, whether to
regulate these contaminants with a
National Primary Drinking Water
Regulation (NPDWR). The Regulatory
Determination Priority category is the
list of contaminants from which the
Agency will  determine whether or not
regulations are necessary. There  are
currently 12  contaminants on the 1998
CCL that have been characterized as
having sufficient scientific information
to make regulatory determinations by
August 2001: Acanthamoeba; Aldrin;
Boron; 1,3-dichloropropene; Dieldrin;
Hexachlorobutadiene; Manganese;
Metolachlor; Metribuzin; Napthalene;
Sodium; and Sulfate.
In order make a decision whether or
not to develop a NPDWR for a
contaminant, the SDWA requires three
statutory tests be met: 1) the
contaminant may have an adverse effect
on the health of persons; 2) the
contaminant is known to occur or there
is a substantial likelihood that the
contaminant will occur in public water
systems with a frequency and at levels
of public health concern; and 3) in the
sole judgment of the Administrator,
regulation of the contaminant presents
a meaningful opportunity for health
risk reduction for persons served by
public water systems.
Using these three statutory tests  to
make regulatory decisions, there are
three  possible outcomes: 1) regulate the
contaminant with a NPDWR; 2) develop
guidance (e.g. Health or Consumer
Advisory); or 3) determine no
regulatory action is necessary.
Once a regulatory decision is made, the
contaminant is removed from the CCL.

3610. 6-YEAR REVIEW OF EXISTING
NATIONAL PRIMARY DRINKING
WATER REGULATIONS
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 300f et seq
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 141;  40 CFR 142
Legal Deadline: Other, Statutory,
August 6,  2002, Complete review for
contaminants with NPDWRs
promulgated prior to August 1996.

Abstract: The Safe Drinking Water Act
(SDWA) requires EPA to review and
revise, if appropriate, all National
Primary Drinking Water Regulations
(NPDWRs) no less frequently than once
every six years.  According to SDWA,
any revisions of drinking water
regulations must maintain, or increase,
the level of public health protection
provided; however, EPA may identify
regulatory changes that will streamline
or reduce existing requirements without
lessening the level of public health
protection. As a part of this action, EPA
will do two things: (1) develop an
overall protocol for conducting each six
year review; and (2) review the
chemical contaminants (with the
exception of arsenic which is being
revised and atrazine and copper which
are being reviewed on  accelerated
schedules). No new requirements will
be imposed by this action. The purpose
of the review is  to determine whether
new data, technology, or other factors
exist that justify revisions to existing
NPDWRs. The outcome of each review
will be a Federal Register notice
making available the results of the
Agency's review and a rulemaking
schedule for the regulations the Agency
intends to revise. EPA  may decide that
any of the following need to be revised:
maximum contaminant level goals,
maximum contaminant levels,
analytical methods, monitoring,
treatment, recordkeeping and reporting
requirements. EPA plans extensive
stakeholder outreach and consultation
in the development of the protocol and
throughout the review process.

Abstract: The Long Term 2 Enhanced
Surface Water Treatment Rule
(LT2ESWTR) will control risk from
microbial pathogens in drinking water.
It is being developed simultaneously
with the Stage 2 Disinfectants and
Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR)
which will address risk caused by the
use of disinfectants in drinking water.
This rule could affect all public water
systems that use surface water as a
source. Promulgating the LT2ESWTR
and the Stage 2 DBPR as a paired
rulemaking is necessary to ensure that
adequate protection from microbial risk
is maintained while EPA manages risk
from disinfection byproducts. EPA is
required to promulgate the Stage 2
DBPR by May, 2002, under the 1996
Safe Drinking Water Act amendments.
In developing the LT2ESWTR, EPA will
analyze a significant body of new
survey data on microbial pathogens in
source and finished waters, as well as
data on parameters which could serve
as indicators of microbial risk. This
survey data, which was collected under
the Information Collection Rule (ICR),
Supplemental Surveys to the ICR, and
additional research projects, will
provide a substantially more
comprehensive and complete picture of
the occurrence of waterborne pathogens
than was available previously. EPA will
also use significant new data on the
efficiency of treatment processes for the
removal and inactivation of
microorganisms, as well as new
information on the pathogenicity of
certain pathogens, to determine
effective regulatory requirements for
controlling microbial risk. On March

Abstract: The 1996 Safe Drinking
Water Act Amendments require EPA to
promulgate a Stage 2
Disinfectants/Disinfection Byproducts
Rule (Stage 2 DBPR) by May, 2002. EPA
plans to propose this rule in 2001. The
Regulation, along with a Long Term 2
Enhanced Surface Water Treatment
Rule (LT2ESWTR) that will be
promulgated simultaneously, is
intended to expand existing public
health protections and address
concerns about risk trade-offs  between
pathogens and disinfection  byproducts.
This rule could affect all public water
systems that add a disinfectant to the
drinking water during any part of the
treatment process although  the impacts
may be limited to community water
systems (CWSs)  and non-transient non-
community water systems (NTNCWSs).
Promulgating the LT2ESWTR  and the
Stage 2 DBPR as a paired rulemaking
is necessary to ensure that adequate
protection from microbial risk is
maintained while EPA manages risk
from disinfection byproducts. In
developing the Stage 2 DBPR, EPA will
analyze a significant body of new

parameters, treatment data and
disinfection byproduct occurrence. This
survey data, which was collected under
the Information Collection Rule (ICR),

the occurrence of DBFs and
microbiological pathogens than was
available previously. EPA will also use
new information on the health effects
of exposure to DBFs to determine
effective regulatory requirements for
controlling risk. On March  30, 1999
EPA reconvened a committee of
stakeholders under the Federal
Advisory Committee Act (FACA) to
assist in the development of these
rules. The FACA made
recommendations on rule options to
EPA in  September, 2000.

Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 300f et seq
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 143 (Revision)

Abstract: Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether
(MTBE) is a fuel additive used
primarily to increase the oxygen
content in gasoline. It has been used
in increasing quantity in the 1990s to
meet the requirements of the Federal
Reformulated Gasoline (RFC) and
Oxyfuels programs required by the
Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990.
Although the use of MTBE in gasoline
has helped to reduce harmful air
emissions, it is being detected in
ground water and surface water
throughout the country. In some
instances the affected waters are
drinking water sources. At relatively
low levels, MTBE's taste and odor can
make drinking water supplies
unacceptable to  consumers. In this
action, EPA is proposing a secondary
standard for MTBE, which will provide
control levels for taste and odor
acceptability and to protect the public
welfare.

wells. Class V UIC wells are typically
shallow waste disposal systems that are
diverse in purpose, design, geographic
distribution, the nature of the fluids
injected, and endangerment potential.
In accordance with the judicial
deadlines in a consent agreement, EPA
finalized specific regulations addressing
two types of high risk UIC Class V
injection wells (motor vehicle waste
disposal wells and large-capacity
cesspools) in December 1999. That
regulatory action is informally referred
to as the UIC Class V Phase 1 Rule.
Also, in accordance with the consent
agreement, EPA must evaluate all other
Class V well types and determine if
additional specific requirements are
necessary to protect USDWs and if so,
finalize the appropriate requirements.

EPA—Safe  Drinking Water Act (SDWA)
                                                                             Final  Rule Stage
United States, according to a landmark
report this year by the National
Academy of Sciences. That makes
radon in indoor air the second leading
cause of lung cancer in the United
States. Based on a second NAS report,
EPA estimates that radon in drinking
water causes about 168 cancer deaths
per year, of which about 89 percent are
lung cancer from breathing radon
released from water. The remaining 11
percent  of the risk is for stomach
cancer from  drinking radon-containing
water.
The proposal is based on the unique
framework outlined in the 1996  Safe
Drinking Water Act (SDWA). The
proposed new regulation will provide
two options  to  states and water systems
for reducing public health risks from
radon. Under the first option, states can
choose to develop enhanced state
programs to  address the health risks
from indoor radon while water systems
reduce radon levels in drinking water
to at or below the higher, alternative
maximum contaminant level MCL
proposed at  4,000 pCi/L (picoCuries per
liter, a standard unit of radiation) ,
ensuring protection from the highest
risks from radon in drinking water.
EPA is encouraging the states to  adopt
this approach as the most cost-effective
way to achieve the greatest radon risk
reduction. If a state does not elect this
option, the second option would
require water systems in that state to
either reduce radon in drinking water
levels to the MCL of 300 pCi/L, or to
develop a local indoor radon program
and reduce levels in drinking water to
4000 pCi/L.  Those systems initially at
the MCL or lower will not need to treat
their water for radon.

                     Abstract: EPA has proposed a targeted
                     risk-based regulatory strategy for all
                     ground water systems. The proposed
                     requirements provide a meaningful
                     opportunity to reduce public health
                     risk associated with the consumption
                     of waterborne pathogens from fecal
                     contamination for a substantial number
                     of people served by ground water
                     sources. The proposed strategy
                     addresses risks  through a multiple-
                     barrier approach that relies on five
                     major components: periodic sanitary
                     surveys of ground water systems
                     requiring the evaluation of eight
                     elements and the identification of
                     significant  deficiencies; hydrogeologic
                     assessments to identify wells sensitive
                     to fecal contamination; source water
                     monitoring for systems drawing from
                     sensitive wells without treatment or
                     with other  indications of risk; a
                     requirement for correction of significant
                     deficiencies and fecal  contamination
                     through the following actions: eliminate
                     the source of contamination, correct the
                     significant  deficiency, provide an
                     alternative source water, or provide a
                     treatment which achieves at least 99.99
                     percent (4-log) inactivation or removal
of viruses, and compliance monitoring

Abstract: On January 22, 2001, EPA
published a final Arsenic Rule (66 FR

published a notice extending the
effective date of the final Arsenic Rule
from March 23, 2001, to May 22, 2001
(66 FR 16134), in accordance with a
January 20, 2001, memorandum from
the Assistant to the President and Chief
of Staff, entitled "Regulatory Review
Plan," (published in the Federal
Register on January 24, 2001). The 60-
day delay in effective date  was
necessary to give Agency officials the
opportunity for further review and
consider the new rule. On  April 23,
2001, EPA published a proposal to
further extend the effective date of the
final Arsenic Rule from May 22, 2001,
to February 22, 2002 (66 FR 20579).
As its next step in the process of
reviewing the final Arsenic Rule, EPA
will prepare a proposal for comment
on a range of arsenic maximum
contaminant level options from 3 ppb
to 20 ppb.

August 6, 2001, Decision whether to
regulate.
Abstract: Sulfate is on the list of 83
contaminants required to be regulated
under the Safe Drinking Water Act
(SDWA) of 1986. The contaminant was
deferred from the Phase V regulation
in order to  allow the EPA time to focus
on implementation issues arising from
the proposal concerning the risk of
sulfate in drinking  water to specific
subpopulations. Sulfate can cause
diarrhea in infants  and in adults not
acclimated to high  sulfate-containing
water,  such as travelers. Persons who
are acclimated to high sulfate-
containing  water suffer no  adverse
effects from its consumption. Sulfate
occurs naturally in soil and is also
found in surface water as a result of
acid rain. Sulfate is also used as a
reagent in steel and copper industries
and in the manufacture of copper
sulfate, a fungicide/algicide. An
estimated 2,000 systems—serving a
population  of 200,000 residents, 1
million travelers, and 30,000 infants—
are likely to be affected by this
regulation.  Most of the affected systems
serve populations of less than 3,000
and are transient systems not in service
year-round. EPA proposed  but never
finalized several options for compliance
which would be an alternative to
central treatment and less costly. The
1996 amendments to the SDWA call for
a definitive study to resolve remaining
health risk  questions. Thereafter, EPA
is to make a determination whether or
not to regulate sulfate. EPA and the
Centers for Disease Control have
conducted the health risk study for
sulfate. The results of the study will
serve as the basis for the Agency's
determination on whether to regulate
sulfate.

BACKWASH RECYCLING RULE

CFR Citation: 40 CFR 141.76; 40 CFR
142.16
Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory,
August 6, 2000.
Abstract: In 1990, EPA's Science
Advisory Board (SAB), an independent
panel of experts established by
Congress, cited drinking water
contamination as one of the most
important environmental risks and
indicated that disease-causing microbial
contaminants (i.e., bacteria, protozoa,
and viruses) are probably the greatest
remaining health risk management
challenge for drinking water suppliers.
The 1996 Amendments to the Safe
Drinking Water Act reaffirmed this
conclusion by requiring EPA  to
promulgate a number of regulations to
address public health concerns
associated with drinking water. One
such requirement (Section  1412(b)(14)
was that EPA promulgates regulations
to, "govern" the recycle of filter
backwash within the treatment process
of public utilities.
In developing the Filter Backwash
Recycling Rule (FBRR), EPA analyzed
a variety of issues. The FBRR contains
three major components: 1) recycle
streams must be returned to a location
such that all processes of a system's
conventional or direct filtration are
employed; 2) direct filtration  systems
which recycle must report  practices to
the State; and 3)  conventional filtration
systems which recycle must report
practices to the State.
The FBRR was proposed along with the
Long Term  1 Enhanced Surface Water
Treatment Rule (LT1ESWTR) in a
single NPRM and was published in the
Federal Register on April 10,  2000.
Each will be finalized in separate
rulemakings.

Abstract: EPA provides a place in part
147 of its UIC  regulations where all the
State UIC programs are summarized.
Included in this summarization are all
the authorities and regulations used by
the States to implement the UIC
program, as well as all other documents
that are relevant to the program. The
primary reason for this is to provide
one place where all the UIC programs
nationwide are presented. A second
reason, more importantly, is to allow
EPA to incorporate by reference  into
the Code of Federal Regulations  the
State  program  authorities. Current
citations to State regulations in 40 CFR
part 147 are out of date for many
States. This update is necessary  to
ensure that the CFR accurately reflects
current approved State UIC programs
and that elements of those programs are
federally enforceable if necessary. EPA
Regional Offices will be submitting
State  revision packages as they are
completed. Part 147 will then be
updated in several stages. This is the
first stage. This effort should have no
impact on the  regulated community
because we will merely be
incorporating by reference elements of
already effective State programs.

4103(b)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 237
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This rule will implement the
Shore Protection Act (SPA) and is
designed to prevent the deposit of
municipal and commercial waste into
U.S. Coastal Waters. This rule
establishes minimum waste handling
practices for vessels and waste
handling facilities involved in the
transport of municipal or commercial
wastes in the coastal waters of the
United States. The rule may require
certain vessels and waste handling
facilities to develop an operation and
                    maintenance manual that identifies
                    procedures to prevent, report, and clean
                    up deposits of waste into coastal
                    waters. Local governments and
                    businesses involved with the vessel
                    transportation and shore side handling
                    of these wastes would be affected by
                    this rule. Currently no tribes are known
                    to be involved in waste handling of this
                    type; therefore none would be affected
                    by this rule. In regards to small
                    businesses, EPA has provided guidance
                    on development of operation and
                    maintenance manuals and encourages
                    the use and documentation of existing
                    industry practices that meet or exceed
                    the EPA proposed minimum waste
                    handling standards. All indications are
                    that this regulation as proposed would
                    have a minimal economic impact. This
                    regulation will result in reduction of
                    municipal and commercial wastes
                    deposited in coastal waters.

     A. INDEX TO ENTRIES THAT THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY HAS
                          DESIGNATED FOR SECTION 610 REVIEW

    Section 610(a)  of  the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5  U.S.C. 601) requires each agency to have a plan
for the periodic review of its rules that have significant economic impact on a substantial number of small
entities. Each agency must  publish  annually in the Federal  Register  a list  of  the rules that  it  plans to
review in  the next year. Some  agencies use the Unified  Agenda to  fulfill this requirement.  Those agencies
indicate such entries by appending "(Section 610 Review)" to the titles. Some agencies have also indicated
completions  of  section  610  reviews  or rulemaking  actions resulting from completed  section 610 reviews.
    The following index lists the regulatory actions for which agencies included this  designation. The Se-
quence Number (Seq.  No.)  of  the entry identifies  the location of the entry  in this edition. For further
information,  see the Regulatory Information  Service Center's  Introduction to  the Unified Agenda in part
II of this issue.
