Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 113 / Tuesday, June 14, 2005 / Notices The environmental assessment of this federally assisted action indicates that the project will not cause significant local, regional, or national impacts on the environment. As a result of these findings, Larry D. Butler, Ph.D, State Conservationist, has determined that the preparation and review of an environmental impact statement is not needed for this project. The project will rehabilitate Floodwater Retarding Structure No. 18A to maintain the present level of flood control benefits and comply with the current performance and safety standards. To meet current performance and safety standards for high hazard dams, the modification of FRS No. 18A will include vertically raising the dam’s effective elevation by 1.8 feet, flattening the front and back slopes of the dam to 3:1, removing the orifice plate, and installing an impact basin below the principal spillway. Approximately 10 acres will be disturbed during construction. Disturbed areas will be planted to plants that have wildlife values. The proposed work will not affect any prime farmland, endangered or threatened species, wetlands, or cultural resources. Federal assistance will be provided under authority of the Small Watershed Rehabilitation Amendments of 2000 (section 313, Pub. L. 106–472). Total project cost is estimated to be $916,400 of which $667,400 will be paid from the Small Watershed Rehabilitation funds and $249,000 from local funds. The notice of a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) has been forwarded to the Environmental Protection Agency and to various Federal, State, and local agencies and interested parties.

Subzone 84C was approved by the Board in 1990 at one site located at 12501 Strang Road in La Porte (Board Order 476, 55 FR 28263, 7/10/1990). The applicant is now proposing to expand Subzone 84C to include a second site (including up to 2 buildings with 289,237 square feet of enclosed space on 35.4 acres) at 11505 Highway 225 in La Porte. DuPont also seeks to expand the scope of manufacturing activity authorized to be conducted under zone procedures at Subzone 84C. DuPont’s original authority was granted for the manufacture of hydrofluoric acid. The company now seeks to manufacture, test, package and warehouse certain intermediate chemicals for crop protection products, including sulfonylurea herbicides. The intermediate chemicals will be transferred to other DuPont facilities, including existing subzones, for further manufacturing into finished products. There are two specific inputs and two specific finished intermediates that DuPont intends to produce initially under expanded FTZ manufacturing authority. The inputs are classifiable under HTSUS categories 2930.90 and 2933.39, while the finished intermediates both are classifiable under category 2935.00. The application also requests authority to include a broad range of inputs and finished crop protection products that DuPont may produce under FTZ procedures in the future. (New major activity in these inputs/products could require review by the FTZ Board.) General HTSUS headings of inputs include: 2529, 2807, 2811, 2813, 2814, 2815, 2825, 2826, 2827, 2829, 2830, 2833, 2835, 2836, 2837, 2838, 2851, 2901, 2902, 2903, 2904, 2905, 2906, 2907, 2908, 2909, 2910, 2911, 2912, 2913, 2914, 2915, 2916, 2917, 2918, 2919, 2920, 2921, 2922, 2923, 2924, 2925, 2926, 2927, 2928, 2929, 2930, 2931, 2932, 2933, 2934, 2935, 2938, 2939, 2940, 2942, 3301, 3302, 3402, 3808, 3815, 3824, 3901, 3912, 3919, 3920, 3921, 3923, 3926, 4817, and 4819.

Duty rates for these products range from duty–free to 6.5% ad valorem. The proposed expanded scope of FTZ manufacturing authority would exempt DuPont from Customs duty payments on foreign inputs if used in production for export. On its domestic shipments, DuPont could apply to foreign inputs lower duty rates that apply to the finished products, where applicable. Some of Dupont’s domestic shipments may be zone–to-zone transfers from the La Porte plant of intermediate inputs to be used in manufacturing at other U.S. DuPont facilities.
