Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc RB211 Series Turbofan Engines
The FAA proposes to supersede an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for Rolls-Royce plc (RR) RB211-22B series, RB211-524B, - 524C2, -524D4, -524G2, -524G3, and -524H series, and RB211-535C and - 535E series turbofan engines with high pressure compressor (HPC) stage 3 disc assemblies, part numbers (P/Ns) LK46210, LK58278, LK67634, LK76036, UL11706, UL15358, UL22577, UL22578, and UL24738 installed. That AD requires removing from service certain disc assemblies before they reach their full life if not modified with anticorrosion protection. This proposed AD would require the same actions as AD 2004- 01-20, but would shorten the compliance time for disks that entered service before 1990. This proposed AD results from the manufacturer's reassessment of the corrosion risk on HPC stage 3 disc assemblies not modified with sufficient application of anticorrosion protection. We are issuing this AD to prevent corrosion-induced uncontained disc failure, resulting in damage to the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 757-200, -200PF, and -200CB Series Airplanes Equipped With Pratt & Whitney or Rolls-Royce Engines
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 757-200, -200PF, and -200CB series airplanes. This AD requires inspecting to determine the part number of the upper link forward fuse pins of the engine struts and replacing the fuse pins as necessary. This AD is prompted by a report indicating that, due to an incorrect listing in the illustrated parts catalog, persons performing maintenance on the engine strut(s) could have installed an incorrect upper link forward fuse pin. We are issuing this AD to prevent a ruptured wing box, due to the engine not separating safely during certain emergency landing conditions, which could lead to a fuel spill and consequent fire.
Airworthiness Directives; McDonnell Douglas Model DC-8-11, DC-8-12, DC-8-21, DC-8-31, DC-8-32, DC-8-33, DC-8-41, DC-8-42, DC-8-43, DC-8F-54, and DC-8F-55 Airplanes; and DC-8-50, DC-8-60, DC-8-60F, DC-8-70, and DC-8-70F Series Airplanes
This amendment adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD), applicable to certain McDonnell Douglas airplane models. This AD requires a one-time test to determine the material of the upper inboard spar cap of the wing, and corrective actions if necessary. This action is necessary to prevent stress corrosion cracking in the forward tang of the upper inboard spar cap of the wing, which could result in structural damage to adjacent components of the wing and consequent reduced structural integrity of the airplane. This action is intended to address the identified unsafe condition.

Proposed CERCLA Administrative Cost Recovery Settlement; Shawn Callister, Plain City Drum Site, Weber County, Utah
In accordance with section 122(h)(1) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, as amended (CERCLA), 42 U.S.C. 9622(i), notice is hereby given of a proposed Administrative Order On Consent (AOC) for recovery of certain past response costs concerning the Plain City Drum Site in Weber County, Utah, with Mr. Shawn Callister, Respondent. The settlement requires Mr. Callister to pay $10,000.00 to the Hazardous Substance Superfund for partial payment of past response costs incurred by EPA. The AOC includes a covenant not to sue or to take judicial or administrative action against the Respondent pursuant to sections 106 and 107(a) of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. 9606 and 9607(a). This covenant not to sue is conditioned upon the veracity and completeness of the Financial Information provided to EPA by Mr. Callister. The covenant not to sue extends only to Mr. Callister and does not extend to any other person. In response to the release or threatened release of hazardous substances at or from the Site, EPA undertook response actions at the Site pursuant to section 104 of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. 9604, including emergency removal actions to overpack and properly dispose of twenty eight (28) 55-gallon drums containing flammable liquids. At the time of removal the drums were in poor condition. Some were bulging and some had rusting holes. On-site air monitoring showed the drums were releasing hazardous constituents in the air. The drums were located adjacent to a residence with horse corrals and were approximately 3.5 miles from the Harold's Crane Waterfowl Management Area.

Notice of Proposed Administrative Settlement Pursuant to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, as Amended by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (PRC Patterson Superfund Removal Site)
In accordance with Section 122(i) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, as amended (``CERCLA''), 42 U.S.C. 9622(i), notice is hereby given of a proposed Administrative Order on Consent (``AOC, Region 9 Docket No. 2005-0005) pursuant to Section 122(h) of CERCLA concerning the PRC PATTERSON SUPERFUND REMOVAL SITE (the ``Site''), located in Patterson, California. The respondent to the AOC is the Ramos Environmental Services (``Ramos''). Through the proposed AOC, Ramos will reimburse the United States $70,000 in response costs incurred at the Site. The AOC provides Ramos with a covenant not to sue and contribution protection for the removal action at the Site. This AOC follows three previous administrative settlements, and will be the last enforcement action regarding this Site. Ramos is the last remaining viable party that is potentially responsible for federal costs at the Site, and is resolving its liability after EPA determined its financial strength and ability to make a reimbursement payment. In total, EPA will have recovered $570,001 for this Site, leaving an unrecovered balance of approximately $200,000. For thirty (30) days following the date of publication of this Notice, the Agency will receive written comments relating to the proposed AOC. The Agency's response to any comments received will be available for public inspection at EPA'S Region IX offices, located at 75 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, California 94105.
