In Executive Order No. 13191, the President delegated to CITA the authority to determine whether yarns or fabrics cannot be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner under the CBTPA and directed CITA to establish procedures to ensure appropriate public participation in any such determination. On March 6, 2001, CITA published procedures that it will follow in considering requests (66 FR 13502). On August 31, 2004, the Chairman of CITA received a petition from Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg, P.A., on behalf of Jaclyn, Inc. of New York (Jaclyn), alleging that certain circular single knit jersey fabric of the specifications detailed below cannot be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner. The petition requested that women’s and girl’s nightwear of such fabric assembled in one or more CBTPA beneficiary countries be eligible for preferential treatment under the CBTPA.

On September 24, 2004, CITA and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative offered to hold consultations with the relevant Congressional committees. We also requested the advice of the U.S. International Trade Commission and the relevant Industry Trade Advisory Committees. Given the information in the ITC report and provided by the domestic industry for this and three subsequent petitions on similar products, CITA finds that there is domestic capacity and ability to supply 24-gauge circular knit fabric. During the review of the final petition, CITA uncovered information that there are several domestic suppliers VerDate jul<14>2003 capable of providing 24-gauge circular knit fabric. Follow-up calls made by a CITA representative confirmed that there are at least two U.S. companies who have 24-gauge knitting machines and state they have the ability to make the subject 24-gauge fabric in commercial quantities and in a timely manner. On the basis of currently available information and our review of this request, CITA has determined that the domestic industry can supply the subject fabric described above in commercial quantities in a timely manner. Jaclyn’s request is denied. 14:47 Dec 30, 2004 Jkt 205001 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Dated: December 23, 2004. Jeannette Owings-Ballard, OSD Federal Register Liaison Officer, Department of Defense.

An application to modify a wastewater treatment plant discharge for the Knoll Furniture Manufacturing Facility located off Water Street, approximately 1,000 feet northeast of its intersection with Peevy Road in Upper Hanover Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. No new treatment facilities are proposed. A junction box at the sewage treatment plant will be repaired, and the facility will be rerated to include an additional 3,000 gallons of wastewater flow. Although the current docket provides for a flow of 0.07 million gallons per day (mgd), the wastewater treatment plant provides advanced treatment of a total flow of 0.073 mgd from sanitary, process and cooling water sources prior to discharge to Perkiomen Creek in the Schuylkill River Watershed. 2. Alcoa Extrusions, Inc. D–82–5–3. An application for the renewal of a ground water withdrawal project to reduce withdrawal from 21.6 million gallons per 30 days (mg/30 days) to 11.0 mg/30 days to supply the applicant’s manufacturing facility from existing Wells Nos. 1 and 2 in the West Branch Schuylkill River Watershed. The project is located in Cressona Borough, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 83 3. Occidental Chemical Corporation D–83–9–2. An application to amend the current docket, which provides for a discharge from the 0.3 million gallons per day (mgd) (design) industrial waste treatment plant (IWTP) to contain and treat mercury contaminated groundwater at the applicant’s Delaware City chemical manufacturing plant located off State Route 9 in New Castle County, Delaware. Barrier walls have been constructed around the perimeter of the Process Area and Waste Lake 1. Contaminated groundwater from within these containments will be pumped at a maximum rate of 30 gallons per minute (43,200 gallons per day) for treatment at an activated carbon treatment system before being discharged to the existing IWTP for mercury removal. The IWTP discharge is to the Delaware River in Water Quality Zone 5. 4. County of Chester D–83–15 CP–2. An application to upgrade the applicant’s existing 0.105 mgd sewage treatment plant (STP) from a secondary treatment facility to tertiary treatment with no increase in treatment capacity. The STP will continue to serve only the Pocopson Home and Prison. The STP is located approximately one-half mile north of the intersection of Route 52 and Wawaset Road in Pocopson Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania in the Pocopson Creek Watershed. The existing effluent spray field irrigation system will also be upgraded and no effluent discharge to surface water is proposed. (This docket was NAR’d as D–2004–7 CP.) 5. Waste Management Disposal Services of Pennsylvania, Inc. D–88–54– 2. An application to modify a landfill leachate treatment plant discharge to the tidal Delaware River via a constructed discharge cove in Water Quality Zone 2. The treatment plant serves the Tullytown and GROWS Landfills and is located off Bordentown Road in Falls Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The existing 0.1 million gallons per day leachate treatment plant utilizes the Best Available Treatment Technology but cannot consistently meet effluent total dissolved solids and color limits. The docket holder has requested modification of its docket to allow an increase in the average discharge concentration of Total Dissolved Solids to 10,000 mg/l from the current 6,560 mg/l and an increase in the maximum effluent limit for True Color to 1,500 units from the current 750 units on a platinum-cobalt scale. In support of its requested modifications, the docket holder has completed an environmental study that indicates the changes would result in no significant impact to the Delaware Estuary. No increase in E:\FR\FM\03JAN1.SGM 03JAN1
