                                PREFACE
This quarterly report reviews Agency progress in meeting its priority
program commitments.  The report is a major component of the Agency
Strategic Planning and Management System (SPMS).  SPMS provides a
process for the Agency to identify national goals and priorities,
issue timely guidance to the field, identify measures of success and
track progress against them.  Each quarter the Office of Management
Systems and Evaluation publishes the report using information provided
by Headquarters,  regional offices and state agencies.  The Office of
Compliance Analysis and Program Operations is responsible for the
enforcement sections of this report.

We gratefully acknowledge the assistance and cooperation of the many
people throughout the environmental protection management network who
have made timely production of this report possible.

                         FIRST QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS
o  THERE ARE  FIRST  QUARTER REPORTING PROBLEMS  ON  SOME OF THE NEW
   FY 1986 MEASURES.

o  REGIONS CONTINUE THEIR HIGH SIP PROCESSING  RATES WHILE THE
   BACKLOG GROWS  IN HEADQUARTERS.

O  SEVEN LISTING  DECISIONS FOR HAZARDOUS AIR POLLUTANTS WERE PUBLISHED
   IN THE FIRST QUARTER.

o  THE REGIONS COLLECTIVELY EXCEEDED THEIR  FIXED  BASE SIGNIFICANT
   VIOLATOR TARGET  AND IDENTIFIED 113 NEW SIGNIFICANT VIOLATORS.

O  AIR ENFORCEMENT  ACTIVITY WAS STRONG FOR  BOTH ADMINISTRATIVE
   ORDERS AND CIVIL REFERRALS.

o  INSPECTION FREQUENCY DATA WILL NOT BE REPORTED ON THIS QUARTER
   DUE TO A CHANGE  IN. REPORTING INSPECTION  FREQUENCY DATA.
   COMPLIANCE RATES FOR CLASS Al SIP AND NESHAP SOURCES DECLINED.
   THERE WAS  NO SIGNIFICANT CHANGE TO THE COMPLIANCE RATES FOR
   NSPS SOURCES.

o  ASBESTOS DEMOLITION AND RENOVATION DATA  WILL NOT BE REPORTED ON
   THIS QUARTER DUE TO A CHANGE IN REPORTING INSTRUCTIONS AND
   INACCURATE DATA.

-------
                      NUMBER OF NONATTAINMENT AREAS

o  THE BAR CHARTS  IDENTIFY THE NUMBER OF PRIMARY  NONATTAINMENT AREAS
   (BY POLLUTANT)  FOR EACH REGION AND NATIONALLY.   NATIONALLY, AS OF
   DECEMBER 31,  1985, THERE WERE 695 PRIMARY NONATTAINMENT AREAS: 362
   FOR OZONE,  134  FOR TSP, 141 FOR CO, 54 FOR  S02 AND 4 NOX AREAS (IN
   REGION IX).   IN ADDITION, THERE WERE 203 SECONDARY STANDARD NONATTAINMENT
   AREAS INCLUDING 191 TSP AND 12 SO2-

o  IN ADDITION,  THERE ARE A FEW AREAS WHICH ARE  IN  ATTAINMENT STATUS BUT
   HAVE MONITORED  VIOLATIONS.

o  THIS QUARTER, OAR  WAS SCHEDULED TO PROVIDE  STATUS INFORMATION ON
   ACTIONS BEING TAKEN TO BRING EACH OF THESE  AREAS INTO ATTAINMENT.
   MOST OF THE REGIONS HAVE NOT SUBMITTED THE  REQUIRED DATA TO CHARACTERIZE
   THE PROGRESS  AND CURRENT STATUS FOR THESE AREAS.  THIS IS  DUE BOTH
   TO THE NEWNESS  OF  THE MEASURE -AND THE RELATIVELY MONUMENTAL NATURE
   OF THE TASK.  IN THE SECOND QUARTER OAR WILL  PROVIDE INFORMATION ON
   THE STATUS  OF ACTIONS BEING TAKEN.  (REGIONS  IV, VI AND VII DID
   SUPPLY THE  REQUESTED MATERIAL).

o  SPMS WILL BE  TRACKING CHANGES IN THE NUMBER OF NONATTAINMENT AREAS
   BEGINNING THIS  YEAR.

                        AREAS WITH DEFICIENT SIPS

o  THE REGIONS ALSO REPORTED ON THE NUMBER OF  AREAS WITH DEFICIENT SIPS.
   THEY HAVE IDENTIFIED 237 AREAS WITH DEFICIENT  SIPS INCLUDING 231
   PRIMARY AREAS AND 6 TSP SECONDARY AREAS.  FOR  PRIMARY AREAS THERE
   WERE 90 S02,  56 TSP, 48 OZONE, 4 NOX, 24 CO AND  9 LEAD SIPS WHICH
   WERE IDENTIFIED AS DEFICIENT.  THE REGIONS  AND OAR WERE SCHEDULED TO
   REPORT ON THE SCHEDULES AND ACTIONS BEING TAKEN  TO ADDRESS THESE SIP
   DEFICIENCIES. HALF OF THE REGIONS ARE STILL IN THE PROCESS OF DEVELOPING
   THE REQUESTED DATA SO OAR WILL BE SUPPLYING THE  REQUESTED  DATA
   DURING THE  SECOND QUARTER,  (REGIONS I, IV,  VI,  VII, AND X  DID REPORT
   THEIR DATA).

O  OAR REPORTED  THAT 16 SIP CALL REVISIONS WERE  RECEIVED IN THE FIRST
   QUARTER COMPARED TO A SCHEDULE OF  12.

      DELAY RESULTS IN  NO ESTABLISHED CRITERIA UPON  WHICH  TO BASE THE
      NUMBER OF AREAS WHICH WILL NEED PROGRAMS OR  THE TYPE OF PROGRAMS
      WHICH WILL BE NEEDED.  THEREFORE THE SPMS REPORT IS  UNABLE TO
      GRAPHICALLY PORTRAY THE OVERALL STATUS OF PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT AS
      PLANNED.

   -  REGION II SUCCESSFULLY MET A FIRST QUARTER COMMITMENT FOR A NEW
      PROGRAM IN NEW JERSY.  REGION IV MET AN UPCOMING FOURTH QUARTER
      COMMITMENT FOR A  NEW PROGRAM IN ATLANTA.

O  IN FY 1986 SPMS  WILL BE TRACKING REGIONAL COMMITMENTS TO CORRECT THE
   CRITICAL OR SERIOUS  OPERATING PROBLEMS IDENTIFIED IN EARLIER AUDITS
   OF STATE PROGRAMS.   IT WILL ALSO BE TRACKING THE  COMPLETION OF
   FY 1986 NEW AUDITS AND FOLLOW-UP AUDITS.  DURING  THE FY 1985 AUDITS
   26 OPERATING PROBLEMS  WERE IDENTIFIED.  THE REGIONS HAVE COMMITTED
   TO CORRECT 16 OF THESE PROBLEMS, BUT ARE GENERALLY WORKING ON ALL
   THE PROBLEMS.  FIRST QUARTER REPORTS FROM THE REGIONS AND AN ANALYSIS
   OF THE SUBMITTALS BY OAR REVEALS THAT APPROPRIATE FOLLOW-UP ACTIVITY
   IS BEING TAKEN BY THE  REGIONS AND THE STATES.   SPMS WILL BE TRACKING
   RESOLUTION OF THESE  ISSUES DURING THE YEAR.

                        NATIONAL AIR AUDIT  SYSTEM


O.  THERE WERE THREE  COMMITMENTS DUE FOR  THE .FIRST QUARTER:

   A.  COMPLETION  OF THE NATIONAL REPORT SUMMARIZING THE FY  1985  AUDIT
       ORIGINALLY  DUE DURING THE FOURTH  QUARTER, FY 1985.

   B.  COMPLETION  AND DISTRIBUTION OF THE  FY  1986/87 AUDIT GUIDANCE AND
       THE SUBMISSION OF AUDIT SCHEDULES ESTABLISHED WITH STATES.

   C.  LIST OF  STATE-SPECIFIC PRIORITY DEFICIENCIES FOUND DURING  THE
       FY 1985  AUDITS AND THE NUMBER WHICH WILL BE CORRECTED DURING
       FY 1986.


O  FOLLOWING IS  THE  STATUS FOR EACH ITEM ABOVE:

   A.  THE FY 1985 NATIONAL AUDIT REPORT IS  STILL NOT FINALIZED.   THREE
       OF THE FIVE CHAPTERS WERE COMPLETED DURING THE FOURTH  QUARTER
       AND AN ADDITIONAL CHAPTER WAS COMPLETED DURING THE FIRST QUARTER,
       OAR NOW  PROJECTS COMPLETION IN SECOND  QUARTER.  REASONS  FOR
       DELAY ARE CONTRACTOR PROBLEMS, FEWER  RESOURCES TO PLACE  ON
       PROJECT  THAN  PLANNED AND OTHER HIGHER  PRIORITIES.

   B.  THE GUIDANCE  FOR THE FY 1986/87 AUDITS WAS NOT COMPLETED AND
       DISTRIBUTED ON SCHEDULE.  OAR PLANS TO FINISH THE GUIDANCE EARLY
       IN SECOND QUARTER AND DISTRIBUTE  SHORTLY THEREAFTER.

   C.  OAR REPORTS THAT A TOTAL OF 159 PRIORITY DEFICIENCIES WERE
       IDENTIFIED  IN THE FY 1985 AUDITS.  REGIONS HAVE COMMITTED TO
       CORRECT  77  OF THESE DEFICIENCIES  IN FY 1986.  SPMS WILL  TRACK
       THOSE COMMITMENTS STARTING IN THE SECOND QUARTER.

-------
                            STACK HEIGHTS SIPS


o  THIS YEAR SPMS  WILL BE TRACKING DEVELOPMENT  OF SIP REVISIONS TO
   IMPLEMENT THE STACK HEIGHT RULES.  OAR AND THE REGIONS COMMITTED TO
   THE PREPARATION AND SUBMITTAL OF ACTION  PLANS  FOR SIP REVISIONS FOR
   55 STATES AND TERRITORIES (ALL STATES COMMITTED FOR EXCEPT CONN.).
   SPMS WILL BE TRACKING STATE SCHEDULES WHICH  RESULT FROM THE ACTION
   PLANS.

o  THE REGIONS SUBMITTED 40 OF THE 55 ACTION PLANS PLUS SEVERAL PARTIAL
   PLANS.  REGIONS I,  IV AND VII MET THEIR  FULL COMMITMENT.  REGIONS IX
   AND X MISSED THEIR  COMMITMENT BY 4 AND 3 ACTION PLANS RESPECTIVELY.
   THE ACTION PLANS WILL INDICATE WHICH STATES  WILL NEED SIP REVISIONS
   BASED ON AN INVENTORY OF SOURCES WITH STACKS WHICH ARE NOT IN
   COMPLIANCE WITH THE NEW RULES.


    NATIONAL ACID  PRECIPITATION ASSESSMENT  PROGRAM (NAPAP) DATA BASE


o  OAR COMMITTED TO PROVIDE PROCEDURAL AND  TECHNICAL GUIDANCE FOR REGIONS
   AND STATES IN MEETING PROJECT REQUIREMENTS.   OAR REPORTS THAT THE FINAL
   GUIDANCE WAS ISSUED ON 12/31/85.

-------
                      TIMELY REPORTING OF NAMS  DATA
o  NATIONALLY,  "TIMELY REPORTING" RATES  DECREASED IN THE FIRST QUARTER
   FOR ALL CATEGORIES  COMPARED TO THE FOURTH QUARTER RATES.

o  REGIONS I, III,  AND VIII HAD RATES OVER  80%  FOR ALL CATEGORIES.

O  THE DROP IN  PRECISION AND ACCURACY REPORTING RATES TO 74% COMPARES
   TO RATES OF  95%  OR  ABOVE FOR ALL QUARTERS LAST YEAR.  THIS QUARTER
   THE REQUIREMENTS FOR P & A REPORTS WERE  CHANGED AND MADE MORE
   STRINGENT.   THAT APPEARS TO ACCOUNT -SOMEWHAT FOR THE SIGNIFICANTLY
   LOWER RATES.  OAQPS PLANS TO ASSESS THE  PROBLEM.

o  NATIONALLY,  RATES FOR THE FIRST QUARTER  THIS YEAR (88%, 84%) COMPARE
   FAVORABLY TO THE FIRST QUARTER LAST YEAR  (81%, 76%)  FOR CONTINUOUS
   ANALYZER AND 24  HOUR INTEGRATED SAMPLERS  BUT ARE BELOW THE FY  85
   FOURTH QUARTER RATES OF 89% AND 87%.

o  ALL TEN REGIONS  (DUE TO THE LOW PRECISION AND ACCURACY RATES)  SHOW
   THEIR LOWEST OVERALL RATES FOR THE LAST  THREE QUARTERS REPORTED.

                     ACTION TRACKING SYSTEM SUMMARY

                          (10/01/85 - 01/15/86)


o  THE ACTION TRACKING  SYSTEM (ATS) MONITORS THE  TIMELY COMPLETION OF
   CRITICAL AGENCY REGULATIONS,  GUIDANCES AND POLICY  DOCUMENTS.  THE
   FOLLOWING SUMMARY REFLECTS PROGRESS IN MEETING ATS SCHEDULES,
   INCLUDING THOSE ESTABLISHED DURING OPEN SEASON.

o  IN THE FIRST QUARTER OAR HAD 35 PROJECTS IN  ATS.   EIGHT OF THESE
   PROJECTS WERE COMPLETED, (SEVEN LISTING DECISIONS  AND AN NSPS FOR
   ONSHORE GAS).  FOR THE EIGHT PROJECTS COMPLETED DURING THE QUARTER
   THE AVERAGE DELAY WAS 38 DAYS WITH A RANGE OF  16 TO 98 DAYS LATE.
   SOME OF THESE DELAYS WERE DUE TO THE HOLDING OF LISTING DECISIONS BY
   THE TWELFTH FLOOR BEFORE PUBLISHING.

o  OF THE REMAINING 27  PROJECTS, 2 ARE PENDING  WITH INDETERMINATE
   SCHEDULES.  THESE TWO PROJECTS (GAS MARKETING  AND  SUBPART D NSPS
   REVISION) HAVE BEEN  PENDING FOR 54 AND 161 DAYS RESPECTIVELY.

o  OF THE REMAINING 25  PROJECTS, 13 HAD MILESTONES DUE OR LATE FROM
   10/01/85 TO 01/15/86.  WHILE NONE OF THE 13  PROJECTS ARE CURRENTLY
   ON SCHEDULE, 5 PROJECTS HAD MILESTONES COMPLETED DURING THE FIRST
   QUARTER.

O  MANY OF THE OAR PROJECTS ARE UNDERGOING LENGHTY SCHEDULE DELAYS.
   THE PRIMARY CAUSES OF THE DELAYS ARE OMB RELEASE  (THREE PROJECTS
   BEING HELD FOR 5, 6, AND 11 MONTHS) AND THE  LACK OF RESOLUTION OF
   POLICY ISSUES  (COST  EFFECTIVENESS AND BUBBLE)  HOLDING UP WORK ON
   SEVERAL NSPS'S.  (RUBBER TIRE, POLYMERS AND  RESINS, E.G. HAVE BEEN
   EFFECTIVELY "ON HOLD"' FOR OVER 8 MONTHS).  THE REMAINING DELAYS ARE
   DUE TO INTERNAL OAR  DELAYS PLUS A NUMBER OF  AGENCY REVIEW DELAYS.

  PROGRESS IN RETURNING SIGNIFICANT  AIR  VIOLATORS TO COMPLIANCE

THE UNIVERSE OF SIGNIFICANT VIOLATORS  CONTINUES TO GROW.  THE AIR
PROGRAM IDENTIFIED 647 SOURCES AS  BEING  SIGNIFICANT VIOLATORS
AT THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR  (COMPARED TO 513 LAST YEAR).  OF THE
647 SOURCES IDENTIFIED, 489 HAVE BEEN  TARGETED BY THE REGIONS TO BE
ADDRESSED DURING THE COURSE OF FY  1986 (COMPARED TO 390 IN FY 1985).

AT THE END OF THE FIRST QUARTER, THE REGIONS HAD COLLECTIVELY
EXCEEDED THEIR FIXED BASE SIGNIFICANT  VIOLATOR TARGET OF 87 BY
ADDRESSING 120.  OF THE 120 SIGNIFICANT  VIOLATORS, 85 WERE RETURNED
TO COMPLIANCE, 19 WERE7PLACED ON ACCEPTABLE SCHEDULES AND 16 ARE
PENDING ENFORCEMENT ACTION.

THE REGIONS IDENTIFIED 113 NEW SIGNIFICANT VIOLATORS DURING THE
QUARTER.  NOT ONLY WAS THE LEVEL OF  ACTIVITY HIGH OVERALL, BUT, THE
MIX OF ACTIVITY WAS WELL DISTRIBUTED AMONG ALL THE REGIONS.

OF THE 113 NEW SIGNIFICANT VIOLATORS,  5  HAVE BEEN RETURNED TO
COMPLIANCE, 2 HAVE BEEN PLACED ON  AN ACCEPTABLE SCHEDULE, LEAVING
106 STILL TO BE ADDRESSED.

                      /
EPA ADMINISTRATIVE ENFORCEMENT  ACTIVITY WAS STRONG DURING THE  FIRST
QUARTER WITH 28 ORDERS  REPORTED.   THIS COMPARES FAVORABLY TO FIRST
QUARTER FY 1984 WHEN 5  WERE  REPORTED AND FIRST QUARTER FY 1985  WHEN
9 WERE REPORTED.

EPA CIVIL REFERRAL ACTIVITY  WAS ALSO HIGH DURING THE FIRST QUARTER
WITH 19 AIR CASES BEING REFERRED BY THE REGIONS.  CIVIL REFERRAL
ACTIVITY HAS CONTINUED  TO IMPROVE SINCE FY 1984 WHEN 11 CIVIL
REFERRALS WERE MADE, AND  FY  1985 WHEN 17 CIVIL REFERRALS WERE  MADE.

                         FIRST QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS


o  EPA AND THE DELEGATED STATES ARE ON SCHEDULE  FOR APPROVING
   PRETREATMENT  PROGRAMS.

O  BOTH EPA AND  THE  DELEGATED STATES ARE  ESSENTIALLY ON OR AHEAD OF
   SCHEDULE IN IMPLEMENTING THE NATIONAL  MUNICIPAL POLICY.  HOWEVER,
   FPA FELL SHORT  OF ITS TARGET FOR PLACING  MAJOR FACILITIES REQUIRING
   CONSTRUCTION  ON ENFORCEABLE SCHEDULES.

o  THE STATES ARE  SIGNIFICANTLY BEHIND SCHEDULE  FOR REPERMITTING.  EPA
   IS BEHIND SCHEDULE IN REISSUING INDUSTRIAL PERMITS, BUT IS AHEAD OF
   SCHEDULE FOR  MUNICIPAL REPERMITTING.

o  EPA AND THE DELEGATED STATES ARE BEHIND SCHEDULE IN RESOLVING EVIDENTIARY
   HEARING REQUESTS.

O  WITH THE EXCEPTION OF PROJECTS OF INITIATING  OPERATION, THE CONSTRUCTION
   GRANTS PROGRAM  IS ON SCHEDULE.

O  THE 301(h), TMDLs AND UIC PROGRAMS ARE ON SCHEDULE.

O  NPDES ENFORCEMENT WAS GOOD.  COMPLIANCE RATES  FOR MAJOR MUNICIPALS HAVE
   INCREASED STEADILY SINCE THE THIRD QUARTER OF  FY 1985.  ADMINISTRATIVE
   ORDER AND CIVIL REFERRAL ACTIVITIES ARE CONSIDERABLY HIGHER THAN THIS TIME
   LAST YEAR.  THE REGIONS ARE DOING A GOOD  JOB  OF TAKING ACTION AGAINST NEWLY
   FOUND SIGNIFICANT NONCOMPLIERS (ONLY  1% OF THE INDUSTRIALS AND  2% OF THE
   MUNICIPALS APPEARED ON THE EXCEPTIONS  REPORT  THIS QUARTER).

O  THE UIC PROGRAM MET ITS TARGETS FOR ADDRESSING FIXED BASE SIGNIFICANT
   NONCOMPLIERS.

               COMMUNITY  SYSTEMS COMPLIANCE STATUS

NATIONALLY, FOR THE  12 MONTHS  ENDING JUNE 30, 1985, THE PROGRAM
EXCEEDED END-OF-YEAR COMPLIANCE TARGETS FOR MICROBIOLOGICAL AND
TURBIDITY MAXIMUM CONTAMINANT  LEVELS (MCLs) AND MONITORING AND
REPORTING (M/R) REQUIREMENTS.

ONE PERCENT OF 61,135 COMMUNITY SYSTEMS WERE PERSISTENT VIOLATORS
OF MICROBIOLOGICAL MCL's; AND  5% OF THE 61,135 SYSTEMS WERE PERSIS-
TENT VIOLATORS OF MICROBIOLOGICAL M/R REQUIREMENTS.  THE  NATIONAL
GOALS FOR MICROBIOLOGICAL MCLs AND M/R REQUIREMENTS ARE LESS  THAN
1.5% AND 6.3%, RESPECTIVELY,  IN PERSISTENT VIOLATION.

ONLY 1% OF 11,571 COMMUNITY SYSTEMS WERE PERSISTENT VIOLATORS OF
TURBIDITY MCLs; AND  3% OF THE  11,571 SYSTEMS WERE PERSISTENT
VIOLATORS OF TURBIDITY M/R  REQUIREMENTS.  THE NATIONAL GOALS  FOR
THESE TWO ARE LESS THAN 4.8%  and 9.9% RESPECTIVELY.

FOR TOTAL TRIHALOMETHANE  REQUIREMENTS, ONLY 1% OF 3,174 SYSTEMS
WERE PERSISTENT VIOLATORS OF  MCLs OR M/R REQUIREMENTS.

   FOLLOWING SUMMARY REFLECTS PROGRESS IN MEETING ATS  SCHEDULES ESTA-
   BLISHED DURING OPEN  SEASON.

o  OW HAS 30 PROJECTS IN  ATS.  TWENTY-TWO OF THESE PROJECTS  HAD MILE-
   STONES DUE OR LATE FROM 10/01/85 TO 01/15/86.  SEVEN  OR  32%  OF THESE
   PROJECTS REMAIN ON SCHEDULE COMPARED TO ORIGINAL  SCHEDULES.   (THESE
   ORIGINAL SCHEDULES REFLECT OPEN SEASON CHANGES.)  THE REMAINING 15
   PROJECTS ARE 2 TO 91 DAYS LATE, WITH AN AVERAGE OF  25 DAYS BEHIND
   THEIR ORIGINAL SCHEDULES.

o  ONE PROJECT IS PENDING WITH  AN INDETERMINATE SCHEDULE.

o  OW COMPLETED 3 ATS PROJECTS  FROM 10/01/85 TO 01/15/86.   ONE  OF THESE,
   OR 33%, WAS COMPLETED  ON TIME COMPARED TO ORIGINAL  SCHEDULES.  THE
   AVERAGE DELAY FOR PROJECTS COMPLETED WAS ONLY 10  DAYS, WITH  A RANGE
   FROM 5 TO 15 DAYS.

                         FIRST QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS


o  THE RCRA PROGRAM WAS DELEGATED TO FOUR STATES DURING THE FIRST
   QUARTER.  SEVENTEEN APPLICATIONS ARE CURRENTLY UNDER REVIEW BY  EPA.

o  1456 LAND DISPOSAL FACILITIES WILL REQUIRE  INITIAL SCREENS BY
   JANUARY 31,  1986 TO IDENTIFY THOSE'THAT  ARE ENVIRONMENTALLY SIGNIFICANT,
   THE REGIONS  DID NOT MEET THE FIRST QUARTER  TARGET.

o  NEW FY 1986  MEASURES FOCUS EFFORTS ON CORRECTIVE ACTION AND GROUND
   WATER MONITORING ACTION AT LAND DISPOSAL FACILITIES.  BOTH ACTIVITIES
   ARE NECESSARY  PREPARATORY ELEMENTS TO ISSUING PERMITS.  THE REGIONS
   EXCEEDED THEIR FIRST QUARTER TARGETS FOR BOTH ACTIVITIES.

o  THE MAJORITY OF PUBLIC NOTICIES (68%) AND FINAL DETERMINATIONS  (81%)
   IN THE RCRA  PERMITTING PROCESS WERE RELATED TO CLOSURE PLANS.

o  OVERALL, GOOD  PROGRESS WAS MADE AGAINST  FIRST QUARTER COMMITMENTS
   FOR RCRA ENFORCEMENT.   THE REGIONS AND THE  STATES ARE SLIGHTLY  AHEAD
   OF TARGET IN ADDRESSING SIGNIFICANT NONCOMPLIERS.  FOR INSPECTIONS,
   EPA MET OR EXCEEDED THEIR COMMITMENTS AND STATES WERE SLIGHTLY  BELOW
   EXPECTATIONS.

o  THE REGIONS  HAVE EXCEEDED THE FIRST QUARTER TARGET FOR SUPERFUND
   PRELIMINARY  ASSESSEMNTS AND SITE INSPECTIONS.

o  THE REGIONS  DID NOT MEET THEIR COMMITMENTS  FOR §107 COST RECOVERY
   ACTIONS.

                          SUPERFUN.D ACTIVITIES

                      ASSESSMENTS AND  INSPECTIONS

O  THE REGIONS COMPLETED 119% OP THE PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENTS TARGETED
   FOR THE FIRST QUARTER.  1060 HAVE BEEN COMPLETED AGAINST A TARGET
   OF 891.  SEVEN REGIONS MET OR EXCEEDED THEIR TARGETS.  REGION II HAS
   SUBSTANTIALLY MISSED THE TARGET FOR THE FIFTH CONSECUTIVE QUARTER.
   IN ADDITION, REGIONS I AND V MISSED THEIR TARGETS.

O  THE REGIONS HAVE EXCEEDED THE FIRST QUARTER TARGET FOR SITE
   INSPECTIONS BY 26%.  312 HAVE BEEN  COMPLETED AGAINST A TARGET OF
   247.  REGIONS VI AND VII EXCEEDED BOTH TARGETS BY MORE THAN 200%.
   REGIONS II, IV AND V MISSED THEIR TARGET.


                            REMOVAL ACTIONS

O  IN FY 1986, THE REMOVAL ACTIVITIES  WILL COMBINE REPORTING OF BOTH
   PRP REMOVAL ACTIONS AND FUND-FINANCED ACTIVITIES AT NPL SITES TO
   REFLECT A MORE INTEGRATED PICTURE OF THE PROGRAM ACTIVITIES.

   -  DURING THE FIRST QUARTER, 11 FIRST TIME REMOVAL ACTIONS WERE
      STARTED  (7 OF THESE WERE FUND-FINANCED AND 4 WERE INITIATED BY
      PRP's).  IN ADDITION, 3 FUND-FINANCED RESTART  (SUBSEQUENT) ACTIONS
      WERE INITIATED.

   -  DURING THE FIRST QUARTER, 11 FUND-FINANCED REMOVAL ACTIONS AT
      NPL SITES WERE COMPLETED  (6 OF THESE WERE FIRST TIME ACTIONS AT
      NPL SITES AND 5 WERE COMPLETION  OF RESTART (SUBSEQUENT) ACTIONS).

THE HAZARDOUS AND SOLID  WASTE AMENDMENTS OF 1984 REQUIRE  EPA  AND THE
STATES TO PERMIT ALL  ACTIVE  LAND DISPOSAL FACILITIES BY NOVEMBER 1988.
IN ADDITION, EPA AND  THE STATES MUST REVIEW CLOSURE PLANS AND CLEAN
CLOSURE*CERTIFICATIONS FOR ALL LAND DISPOSAL FACILITIES.   THIS MEASURE
TRACKS INITIAL SCREENS WHICH TO IDENTIFY ENVIRONMENTALLY  SIGNIFICANT
LAND DISPOSAL FACILITIES,  WHETHER ACTIVE OR CLOSED.  ONCE IDENTIFIED AS
ENVIRONMENTALLY SIGNIFICANT,  A FACILITY MANAGEMENT PLAN IS PREPARED TO
ENSURE COORDINATION AND  JOINT PLANNING BETWEEN STATE AND  REGIONAL
PERMITTING, ENFORCEMENT,  SUPERFUND AND OTHER APPROPRIATE  PERSONNEL.

o THERE ARE 1456 LAND DISPOSAL FACILITIES WHICH  REQUIRE INITIAL SCREENS
  TO DETERMINE THEIR  ENVIRONMENTAL SIGNIFICANCE  BY JANUARY 31, 1986.
  THE REGIONS AND STATES HAVE COMPLETED 860 INITIAL SCREENS SINCE THE
  PROGRAM'S INCEPTION.   THIS IS 82% OF THE CUMULATIVE  TARGET  OF 1050.
  302 INITIAL SCREENS WERE COMPLETED DURING OCTOBER AND NOVEMBER.  596
  FACILITIES REMAIN TO HAVE  INITIAL SCREENS COMPLETED.

o 701 LAND DISPOSAL FACILITIES HAVE BEEN DETERMINED TO BE ENVIRONMENTALLY
  SIGNIFICANT AND WILL REQUIRE FACILITY MANAGEMENT PLANS  BY JULY 31, 1986,
  FIVE FACILITY MANAGEMENT PLANS HAD BEEN APPROVED BY  NOVEMBER 30, 1985.

   -  52 (6% OF THE FIXED BASE) HAVE BEEN RETURNED TO PHYSICAL
      COMPLIANCE.
   -  200 (25% OF THE FIXED BASE) ARE UNDER A FINAL, EFFECTIVE ADMINISTRATIVE
      ORDER, COURT JUDGMENT OR CONSENT DECREE.
   -  214 (27% OF THE FIXED BASE) HAVE RECEIVED AN INITIAL ADMINISTRATIVE
      OR JUDICIAL COMPLAINT.
   -  332 (42% OF THE FIXED BASE) ARE PENDING.

o  OVERALL OPTS PERFORMED WELL,  MEETING OR EXCEEDING TARGETS  FOR  THE
   MAJORITY OF ITS  SPMS  COMMITMENTS.  IN PARTICULAR THE ASBESTOS  ACTION
   PROGRAM, REPORTING AGAINST NEW,  ENVIRONMENTALLY ORIENTED SPMS  MEASURES,
   WAS OUTSTANDING.

o  IN THE PESTICIDES PROGRAM  OPTS EXCEEDED TARGETS FOR A  REVISED  MEASURE
   ON REGISTRATION  APPLICATIONS.  THESE MEASURES  FOCUS MORE ON HOW A
   PESTICIDE WILL ACTUALLY EFFECT THE ENVIRONMENT.

o  IN THE TOXICS PROGRAM  OPTS COMPLETED FOUR RISK MANAGEMENT  ACTIONS,
   MEETING ITS SPMS TARGET.

-------
                     PESTICIDE REGISTRATION STANDARDS
o  OPTS MET ITS TARGET  FOR NUMBER OF REGISTRATION  STANDARDS (THE PROGRAM
   ESTABLISHED FOUR), HOWEVER THESE STANDARDS COVER  ONLY 0.3 PERCENT OF
   THE TOTAL PESTICIDE  USAGE AGAINST A FIRST QUARTER TARGET OF 1.5 PERCENT,

o  SINCE THE PROGRAM WAS  ESTABLISHED IN 1980, OPTS HAS  ISSUED STANDARDS
   COVERING:

   - 5,880 PESTICIDE PRODUCTS OUT OF A UNIVERSE  OF APPROXIMATELY 45,000.
   - 34.9% OF THE  PESTICIDE USAGE  (BY VOLUME) IN THE UNITED STATES.
   - 121 PESTICIDE ACTIVE INGREDIENTS OUT OF A TOTAL OF 578.

-------
              HEALTH  AND SAFETY REQUIREMENTS  FOR CHEMICALS

                    COVERED BY REGISTRATION  STANDARDS
o  THIS MEASURE TRACKS WHETHER THE HEALTH  AND SAFETY REQUIREMENTS  (HSR)
   OF A REGISTRATION STANDARD ISSUED ONE  YEAR EARLIER HAVE BEEN
   IMPLEMENTED.   IN  PARTICULAR IT FOCUSES  ON  WHETHER THE REGISTRANTS  OF
   PESTICIDE  PRODUCTS CONTAINING A REGISTERED ACTIVE INGREDIENT  HAVE:

   -  AGREED  TO SUBMIT ALL HEALTH AND SAFETY  STUDIES REQUIRED BY EPA  AND
   -  SUBMITTED AN  EPA APPROVED DRAFT LABEL

o  OPTS's OBJECTIVE  IS TO INSURE THAT 80  PERCENT OF THE PRODUCTS COVERED
   BY A REGISTRATION STANDARD HAVE HEALTH  AND SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
   IMPLEMENTED WITHIN ONE YEAR.

o  OPTS IMPLEMENTED  FOUR HEALTH AND SAFETY REQUIREMENTS DURING THE
   FIRST QUARTER  AGAINST A TARGET OF  12.

o  THE EIGHT  CHEMICALS FOR WHICH OPTS DID NOT MEET HEALTH AND SAFETY
   REQUIREMENTS ARE  CHEMICALS WHICH HAVE  HAD  REGISTRATION STANDARDS
   ESTABLISHED MORE  THAN A YEAR AGO.  OPTS IS JUST BEGINNING TO  UTILIZE
   ITS SYSTEM FOR ADDRESSING THESE OLDER  CHEMICALS.

                PESTICIDE REGISTRATION  APPLICATIONS
THESE MEASURES  HAVE BEEN SIGNIFICANTLY REVISED FROM  LAST YEAR TO
FOCUS MANAGEMENT ATTENTION ON FINAL  DECISIONS ON REGISTRATION APPLICATIONS,
RATHER THAN  ON  INTERMEDIATE STEPS.   THESE REVISED MEASURES ARE A STEP AWAY
FROM ADMINISTRATIVE ACTIONS, AND TOWARDS HOW AND WHAT  PESTICIDES
ACTUALLY WILL BE USED IN THE ENVIRONMENT.

OPTS WAS AHEAD  OF TARGET IN EVERY  AREA OF FINAL DECISIONS ON
REGISTRATION APPLICATIONS.  NOTABLY  THE PROGRAM MADE FOUR FINAL DECISIONS
ON NEW ACTIVE INGREDIENTS (NONE WERE TARGETED) AND EXCEEDED ITS TARGET

                        TSCA NEW CHEMICAL REVIEWS
o  OPTS MANAGED  TO KEEP PACE WITH DEMAND  IN  NEW CHEMICAL NOTICES,
   RECEIVING 464  IN THE FIRST QUARTER, AND PROCESSING 474.

o  THE MAJORITY  OF THESE WERE PRE-MANUFACTURE NOTICES, OF WHICH:

   -  86 RESULTED IN THE CHEMICAL BEING SUSPENDED, WITHDRAWN, OR
      SUBJECT  TO AN EPA ORDER;
   -  25 WERE  REFERRED FOR FOLLOW-UP;
   -  285 REQUIRED NO FURTHER ACTION.

o  NO NEW CHEMICAL FOLLOW-UP ACTIONS WERE TAKEN DURING THE  FIRST  QUARTER,
   ACTIONS  SCHEDULED FOR COMPLETION WERE  DELAYED OR ARE ON  HOLD DUE TO
   LEGAL ISSUES.

-------
            INTERAGENCY  TESTING COMMITTEE (ITC) DESIGNATIONS

o  OPTS ACHIEVED ITS  FIRST QUARTER TARGET BY TAKING  ACTION ON SEVEN
   CHEMICALS ON THE  15TH AND 16TH ITC LIST.

   -  NOTICES OF PROPOSED RULE MAKING WERE ISSUED  FOR  FIVE CHEMICALS.

   -  THE PROGRAM  PUBLISHED DECISIONS NOT TO TEST  TWO  CHEMICALS.

o  THE PROGRAM ALSO  MET  ITS TARGET OF 7 FINAL TESTING  DECISIONS, ISSUING
   THREE FINAL TEST  RULES, TWO PROPOSED TEST RULES,  AND TWO DECISIONS
   NOT TO TEST.

                         ASBESTOS ACTION PROGRAM
                   ASBESTOS SCHOOL HAZARD ABATEMENT ACT

o  THE ASBESTOS ACTION  PROGRAM EXCEEDED ITS TARGETS FOR BOTH AREAS WITH
   FIRST QUARTER  REPORTING REQUIREMENTS:  THE  REGIONS VISITED 24 SITES TO
   CONFIRM ASBESTOS  HAZARD ABATEMENT (AGAINST  A  TARGET OF 12) AND WERE
   ABLE TO REDUCE THE HAZARD AT 68 SITES. WHICH EPA WAS UNABLE TO FUND
   THROUGH ASHAA.  ONLY 39 OF THESE HAZARD REDUCTIONS WERE COMMITTED TO
   IN THE FIRST QUARTER.
                          /
o  REGION VI  (24  REDUCTIONS), REGION VII (14 REDUCTIONS) AND REGION IX
   (23 REDUCTIONS) DID  PARTICULARLY WELL IN THIS NEW INITIATIVE.  OTHER
   REGIONS ARE LAYING THE GROUNDWORK FOR ASSISTING SCHOOLS IN REDUCING
   ASBESTOS HAZARD,  AND ARE EXPECTED TO MEET THEIR SECOND QUARTER TARGETS,

O  ALTHOUGH THE GRAPH DEPICTS A LARGE NUMBER OF  IDENTIFIED PROJECTS NOT
   YET ADDRESSED  BY  AAP,  THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN ADDRESSED REPRESENT A
   MAJOR PORTION  OF  THE HIGHEST PRIORITY PROJECTS (I.E., THOSE WITH THE
   MOST EXPOSURE  HOURS).

 REGIONAL AND HEADQUARTERS TSCA  INSPECTIONS  AND COMPLIANCE LEVELS

THE REGIONS AND HEADQUARTERS EXCEEDED  (114%)  THEIR COMBINED FIRST
QUARTER TARGET FOR TSCA COMPLIANCE  INSPECTIONS,  CONDUCTING 1,103
INSPECTIONS VERSUS A TARGET OF 970.  HEADQUARTERS CONDUCTED 61
INSPECTIONS FOR COMPLIANCE WITH  PREMANUFACTURE  NOTIFICATION AND
TESTING AND REPORTING PROVISIONS OF  TSCA.

OF THE 1,103 INSPECTIONS:
-  28% WERE IN COMPLIANCE
-  19% WERE IN VIOLATION  (10% WITH  ENFORCEMENT  ACTION TAKEN;
      9% WITH ENFORCEMENT ACTION PENDING)
-  53% WERE PENDING A COMPLIANCE DETERMINATION

BECAUSE OVER HALF OF THE  INSPECTIONS WERE  PENDING A COMPLIANCE
DETERMINATION AT THE END OF THE  QUARTER, COMPLIANCE LEVELS ARE
UNCLEAR; HOWEVER, OF THE  520 .INSPECTIONS FOR WHICH A COMPLIANCE
DETERMINATION WAS MADE BY THE END OF THE QUARTER, 60% WERE IN
COMPLIANCE.  THIS RATE WAS 57% AT THE  END  OF THE FIRST QUARTER
LAST YEAR.

BY FIVE REGIONS (III, IV, VI, VII AND X) TO  STATES FOR  INVESTIGATION
AND ENFORCEMENT ACTION WITHIN REQUIRED TIMEFRAMES.   OF  THESE 20
CASES:

-  6 (30%) WERE ADDRESSED BEYOND THE TIMEFRAME
-  6 (30%) WERE PENDING  (NOT ADDRESSED) WITHIN  THE TIMEFRAME
-  7 (35%) WERE ADDRESSED WITHIN THE TIMEFRAME

WITH RELATIVELY LOW NUMBERS OF REFERRALS IN  THE FIRST QUARTER, DUE
IN PART TO.SEASONAL FACTORS, OVERALL PERFORMANCE IS  UNCLEAR AT THIS

                        SECTION 404 PERMIT REVIEW
o  DURING FIRST QUARTER,  EPA RAISED SIGNIFICANT  ISSUES FOR 26% OF THE
   2,005 SECTION  404  PERMIT APPLICATIONS REVIEWED.   FOR THE PAST TWO
   YEARS, EPA HAS  CONSISTENTLY VOICED CONCERN ABOUT 25% TO 30% OF THE
   PERMIT APPLICATIONS  IT REVIEWS.

o  OF THE 430 PENDING APPLICATIONS WHICH THE CORPS  OF ENGINEERS ACTED ON
   IN FIRST QUARTER  1986, THE CORPS ACCEPTED 390 (91%) OF EPA'S RECOMMENDATIONS
   — DENYING 47  PERMITS  AND MODIFYING 343.  IN  40  (9%) OF THE CASES,
   THE CORPS ISSUED  PERMITS OVER EPA RECOMMENDATION FOR DENIAL OR
   WITHOUT EPA RECOMMENDED MODIFICATIONS.  SINCE 1984 THE CORPS HAS
   CONSISTENTLY ACCEPTED  BETWEEN 80% AND 95% OF  EPA COMMENTS IN THE
   APPLICATION PROCESS.

o  THE REGIONS INITIATED  FIVE ADVANCE IDENTIFICATION ACTIONS, EXCEEDING
   THEIR TARGET OF ZERO FOR THE FIRST QUARTER.   OEA CREDITS THIS ACCELERATION
   TO THE PERSISTENCE OF  THE REGIONS IN WORKING  WITH OTHER AGENCIES,
   ESPECIALLY THE CORPS,  AND TO THE AVAILABILITY OF SOME EXTRAMURAL
   FUNDS.  THE YEAR-END TARGET FOR 1986 IS TO INITIATE TEN ACTIONS.
