Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 139 / Thursday, July 21, 2005 / Notices grounds for the issues arose after this period. On January 26, 2004, the EPA received from the Chicago Legal Clinic petitions requesting that EPA object to the proposed title V operating permits for the Midwest Generation Romeoville and Joliet stations. The petitions raise issues regarding the permit application, the permit issuance process, and the permits themselves. Chicago Legal Clinic asserts that the permits: (1) Fail to comply with State and Federal requirements; (2) allow excess emissions during startup and malfunction, contrary to U.S. EPA policy; (3) contain conditions that are not practically enforceable; (4) allow the plant to continue to operate in a manner which causes severe health impacts on the surrounding communities; (5) contain numerous typographical errors, mistakes, and omissions; (6) are legally inadequate because they do not impose enforceable schedules to remedy noncompliance; and (7) fail to address mercury and other hazardous air pollutants. On June 24, 2005, the Administrator issued orders partially granting and partially denying the petitions. The orders explain the reasons behind EPA’s conclusion that the IEPA must reopen the permits to: (1) Address Petitioner’s significant comments; (2) include periodic monitoring in compliance with 40 CFR 70.6(a)(3)(i)(B); (3) remove the note stating that compliance with the carbon monoxide limit is inherent; (4) explain in the statement of basis how it determined in advance that the permittee had met the requirements of the Illinois State Implementation Plan (SIP) or to specify in the permit that continued operation during malfunction or breakdown will be authorized on a case-by-case basis if the source meets the SIP criteria; (5) remove language which is not required by the underlying applicable requirement or explain in the permit or statement of basis how this language implements the underlying applicable requirement; (6) remove ‘‘established startup procedures,’’ include the startup procedures in the permit, or include minimum elements of the startup procedures that would ‘‘affirmatively demonstrate that all reasonable efforts have been made to minimize startup emissions, duration of individual startups and frequency of startups;’’ (7) require the owner or operator of the sources to report to the agency ‘‘immediately’’ or explain how the phrase ‘‘as soon as possible’’ meets the requirements of the SIP; (8) remove ‘‘reasonably’’ and ‘‘reasonable’’ from relevant permit terms or define or provide criteria to determine VerDate jul<14>2003 19:42 Jul 20, 2005 Jkt 205001 ‘‘reasonably’’ and ‘‘reasonable’’ that meet the requirements of the SIP; (9) remove the term ‘‘reasonable’’ from the relevant permit conditions in accordance with the language in part 70, section 504 of the Clean Air Act or section 39.5 of the Illinois Environmental Protection Act; (10) remove the ability to waive the testing requirements or explain how such a waiver would meet the requirements of part 70; (11) define ‘‘extraordinary circumstances’’ in a manner consistent with the requirements of the SIP or remove the language from the permit; (12) remove ‘‘summary of compliance’’ from the permit or clarify the term such that the reader understands what a ‘‘summary of compliance’’ must contain and how the summary relates to the control measures; (13) include appropriate prompt reporting requirements or explain how and where the permit meets the prompt reporting requirements of part 70; and (14) insert ‘‘which’’ after ‘‘any new process emission unit’’ to be consistent with the SIP. The orders also explain the reasons for denying Chicago Legal Clinic’s remaining claims. Dated: July 6, 2005. Norman Niedergang, Acting Regional Administrator, Region 5.

The expert panel report is an evaluation of the reproductive and developmental toxicity of styrene conducted by a 13member expert panel composed of scientists from the federal government, universities, and private organizations. The CERHR invites the submission of public comments on this expert panel report (see SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION below). The CERHR previously solicited public comment on the draft version of this expert panel report (Federal Register Vol. 70, No. 45 pp. 11680– 11681). Public deliberations by the panel took place on June 1–3, 2005, at the Holiday Inn Old Town Select Alexandria, Virginia to review and revise the draft expert panel report and reach conclusions regarding whether exposure to styrene is a hazard to human development or reproduction. The expert panel also identified data gaps and research needs. DATES: The final expert panel report on styrene will be available for public comment on July 18, 2005. Written public comments on this report should be received by September 1, 2005. ADDRESSES: Comments on the expert panel report and any other correspondence should be sent to Dr. Michael D.

Alexander Drive, Building 4401, Room 103, Research Triangle Park, NC 27709. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The National Toxicology Program (NTP) Center for the Evaluation of Risks to Human Reproduction (CERHR) convened an expert panel on June 1–3, PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2005. The purpose of this meeting was to evaluate the scientific evidence regarding the potential reproductive and/or developmental toxicities associated with exposure to styrene. Styrene (ethenylbenzene; CAS RN: 100– 42–5) is a high production volume chemical used in the production of polystyrene resins and as a co-polymer with acrylonitrile and 1,3-butadiene. Styrene is found in items such as foam cups, dental fillings, matrices for ion exchange filters, construction materials, and boats. It is also used in protective coatings, reinforced glass fiber, agricultural products, and as a food additive. The public can be exposed to styrene by ingesting food or drink that has been in contact with styrene polymers or through inhalation of polluted air and cigarette smoke. CERHR selected styrene for expert panel evaluation because of: (1) Public concern about styrene exposure and (2) recently available exposure studies. Following receipt of public comments on the styrene final expert panel report, CERHR staff will prepare an NTP– CERHR monograph on this chemical. NTP–CERHR monographs are divided into four major sections: (1) The NTP Brief which provides the NTP’s interpretation of the potential for the chemical to cause adverse reproductive and/or developmental effects in exposed humans, (2) a roster of expert panel members, (3) the final expert panel report, and (4) any public comments received on that report. The NTP Brief is based on the expert panel report, public comments on that report, and any new information that became available after the expert panel meeting. Request for Comments The CERHR invites written public comments on the styrene expert panel report. Written comments should be sent to Dr. Michael Shelby at the address provided above. Persons submitting written comments are asked to include their name and contact information (affiliation, mailing address, telephone and facsimile numbers, email, and sponsoring organization, if any). Any comments received will be posted on the CERHR Web site and be included in the NTP CERHR monograph on this chemical. All public comments will be considered by the NTP during preparation of the NTP Brief described above under ‘‘Background.’’ Background Information on the CERHR The NTP established the NTP CERHR in June 1998 [Federal Register, December 14, 1998 (Vol. 63, No. 239, pp. 68782)]. The CERHR is a publicly accessible resource for information E:\FR\FM\21JYN1.SGM 21JYN1
